Easy Outdoor Christmas Decorating Ideas – Econodek

Are you starting to get into the holiday spirit, but don’t want to leave out a key part of your home – your deck or patio? We have some terrific tips to get your porch, patio, deck, or other outdoor areas ready for the holidays with some easy outdoor Christmas decorating ideas from Econodek.


Whether your space inside is too small, or you do not want needles everywhere inside, putting a tree on your deck for the holidays is a perfect choice – particularly if you can see it through a window. Decorate to your heart’s content with outdoor lights and decorations, then admire from the warmth and comfort of the indoors. You can even buy a live (non-cut) tree and replant it in the spring as an eco-friendly option.

Christmas Lights

Nothing adds holiday cheer quicker than some strings of lights around your outdoor space! Use white for a subtle, modern feel, or go all out with colors and even a light show. Clip lights along the roofline if you like, or simply wrap around vinyl deck railings. Your best bet is to plug into a timer so you can set and forget, but still enjoy the lights at night.

Choose Colors

Find a color combo and stick with it to create a cohesive décor palette on your outdoor space. Red and green is classic, white and silver are nice too, or choose your favorite color combo and roll with it! There are a few ways to choose a color scheme for your decorations:

  • Colors you have in your home
  • Colors from Christmas when you were a kid
  • Fabrics and Hues
  • Sentimental Decorations taking center stage

    New Year Clean Up

    After the holiday season has wrapped up, remove as much of the décor as you can. Be especially aware of dropped needles or sap on the deck surface –  you will want to ensure it is all cleaned up before it can adhere. As always, consider a gift to yourself this year in the form of a new vinyl deck surface in the Spring!
