It’s that time of year once again! While you likely put at least a little bit of effort into decorating your home for the holiday season, why not extend this effort onto your fence as well? Having your fence decorated for the holidays will add an extra bit of flair to your property. If you have kids, you can get them involved in the process as well. Think of it as a great way to bond with your family! Here are some tips on how to decorate your fence this holiday season. 

Use Lights

Decorating your fence with lights is a great way to spread holiday cheer throughout your neighborhood. You can choose whatever type of lights that suit you and your family the best; white string lights, colored string lights, flashing lights, red and green lights. The options are endless and each has a different feel. You can string the lights from fence post to fence post, letting them hang down in-between. If your fence allows, you can also use the small gaps between fence boards to weave the lights in between them. Feel free to get creative and have fun with the process! 

Use Garland

Decorative elements like garland can bring a new character and personality to your fence during the holiday season. Your local home goods store or home improvement store to find the garland or decorations that you would prefer. From there, you can be creative in how much or how little garland that you choose to hang. If you want to use both garland and lights to creatively decorate your fence, that is an option as well!

Other Tips & Tricks

Because the weather is unpredictable this time of year, be sure to secure whatever type of decoration onto your fence so that it won’t blow away. Use materials that will continue to hold up regardless if it is raining, snowing, sleeting or freezing temperatures. Zip ties are a great way to ensure that your decorations stay on no matter what. You should also aim to decorate your entire fence rather than just one portion of it. This will help make the look and feel of your decorations more complete. 

Finally, our fence company in Skokie recommends taking the type of fence that you have into consideration when choosing what decorations will work the best. No two fences or yards are exactly the same, so it will take a little bit of thought to determine what decorations will look the best.
