    If you're looking for a little inspiration this Holiday, take a look at some of these helpful tips on how to decorate the exterior of your home. Some people like going all out on their Christmas decorations, while some like the simplistic and traditional look. It's all about finding what works for you.

    Walkway Light Embellishments
    Add holiday flair to your walkway lights in just a few simple steps. Tie a small piece of greenery and ribbon around the top of the light, add a seasonally hued candle, and use florist's wire to attach a faux cardinal.

    Exterior Lights with Ribbon
    A clutch of evergreens tucked behind an outdoor sconce adds just the right amount of seasonal flair. For a pop of color, tie a bow with long tails and use florist's wire to add a few contrasting jingle bells or ornaments.

    Colorful Christmas Containers
    Without blooming flowers, containers such as these two rectangular planters rely on texture for visual interest. For a seasonal decoration, choose unifying elements but mix up their sizes and shapes. Birch vases hold the sculptural growth of dwarf evergreens, while grapevine balls and shiny ornaments offer pops of texture and shine.

    Seasonal Window Box Greenery
    Winter is a great time to explore all the color that evergreens have to offer. This window box displays at least six different varieties accented with pinecones and multicolor foliage. Add a seasonal accent to the bright red container with bits of evergreen tucked under birch logs along the edge.

    Winter Greenery Basket with Ornaments
    Plants don't have to be potted to supply your outdoors with picturesque charm. Try grouping together a few seasonal items, such as pinecones, bits of greenery, and some leftover ornaments. Leave the basket by the front door, or put one container on each of your entryway steps.
