Outdoor-Christmas-DecoratioWant something a bit different for your outdoor holiday decorations? Take a look at these unique and unusual decorations. From hand made wooden stand-ups to upcycled Christmas globes, you can have a charming and different look with just the addition of a few accent holiday pieces.

That One-of-a-Kind Look for Holiday Decor

Maybe you want to win the local home decorating contest. Or you are just looking for a unique look that none of your neighbors or friends have. Unusual outdoor Christmas decorations make great additions. Some are simple, others are more elaborate. But all are charming and unusual to get that one-of-a-kind look for your outdoor holiday decorations.

Christmas Accents for the Garden or Porch

Not all of us want to stick with only lights on the house and a wreath on the door. Like me, many of us want to add more fun outdoor holiday decorations. Maybe garden stakes, stand-ups on the porch, or hanging delights. Add one or more of these to your own porch or along the garden path for more unique decorating for the holidays.

Complementing Outdoor Holiday Decorations

I’m one of those who likes to try out different effects and looks each year. I take the outdoor holiday decorations that I have already. Then try to create a different look with some additions. Even some rearrangements. One year, I added large red plastic bows to many of the pieces. The total effect was unique and fun. This year, I’m looking at creating groupings of stand-up Christmas accents on my porch.

Imagine a wood snowman standing next to my outdoor table. On the table sits a set of mason jar snow globes. In front of the snowman is a Christmas doormat. That’s what I’m thinking about creating. I like the idea of simple additions to make an unusual effect. Something that no one else in the neighborhood has.

Creating your own unique holiday look for your porch or outdoor decor is easy when you think about unusual items and accent pieces that you can use. Try out several arrangements. Add some evergreen garland in different arrangements. Even a few big red bows. You will have fun creating a look that is totally your own as well. Try some inflatable outdoor decorations as well. Even a set of pre-lit potted Christmas tress on either side of the porch door can be a great effect.
