If you plan on decorating your yard this holiday season, don’t forget to include your fence. Whether you have a vinyl, chain-link or wood fence, there are many ways to add some holiday cheer to the outside of your home. Here are a handful of ideas for decorating your fence for the holidays.
Spotlights and String Lights Lights are a classic option for decorating the outside of your home. For example, you can place string lights along the top of your fence or illuminate it with coloured spotlights. Furthermore, if you have a chain link fence, you can weave string lights through the mesh to create shapes like a Christmas tree or spell out a holiday greeting. However, make sure you use outdoor lights that won’t overload your electrical outlets. If you have a wood fence, avoid using nails to attach lights. Doing so could compromise the integrity of the wood. Instead, use tie-wraps or string.
Coloured Privacy Slats If you have a chain-link fence, you may want to install privacy slats to add holiday colours to your yard. Privacy slats are rigid plastic strips that slide through the chain-link openings in the fence. They’re easy to install and don’t require any tools. Furthermore, privacy slats come in a wide range of colours, including red, green and white. Alternatively, you can make your fence look like a Christmas tree with HedgeLink™ privacy slats. These slats feature artificial pine needles that can be decorated with ornaments.
Garlands and Wreaths You can add a festive touch to your yard by draping garland over your fence or hanging wreaths on the fence posts or gate. Additionally, wrapping lights around the garlands and wreaths can add a bit of winkle to your fence decor during December’s long nights.
Oversized Ornaments and Bows Decorating your fence with oversized ornaments will make your yard stand out from the crowd. You can hang large balls using fishing line or place oversized bows along your fence for some added flair. Get in the holiday spirit this year by decorating your fence!
