St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner! Why not have some fun at home with St. Patrick’s Day decorations? Garage door decorations are easy to install but must be put up properly to avoid damage to your door or garage door opener. We’ve got some suggestions that can help make your home decorating efforts a success.
1. Magnetic Decals
Some people choose to decorate their garage door with decals during the holidays. This works well as long as the decals won’t chip or peel away the paint or finish on your door when removed. Do you own a steel garage door? If so, magnetic decals are a safe and easy way to show your holiday spirit. Buy magnetic decals in a variety of shapes to show your sense of St. Patrick’s day fun. Clovers, rainbows, and pots of gold all make appropriate St. Patrick’s Day decorations.
2. Clover-Shaped Green Twinkly Lights
It’s not easy to get green string lights to take the shape of a clover, but some companies sell decorations made from green twinkle lights in the pre-formed shape of a clover. This decoration can be attached to the outer garage door to spread St. Patricks Day cheer to your neighbors and visitors. To hang your clover-shaped green twinkly lights on your garage door, use a wreath hanger or hang the twinkly lights from a hook in the wooden frame just above the garage door opening. If you decide to hang the clover from a hook attached to the wooden frame over the door, use fishing wire or a clear plastic craft string to suspend the clover over the middle of the door.
If you open and close your garage door regularly, this is not the right decoration for you. You won’t be able to open your garage door if you use these decorations. To prevent your garage door from being accidentally opened while the decoration is in place, lock the door or disengage your garage door from the trolley.
3. Garage Door Banner Cover
Garage door banner covers are sold online and come in a variety of different colors and styles. Most of these products don’t interfere with the functioning of your garage door, but if opening your garage is important to you, read the product specifications before making your purchase.
