The front door should always be the focal point when it comes to decorating the front porch too. How elaborate you want your decorations to be will always determine the idea you go with because they range from pretty simple to full out extreme. One of the most beautiful sights in winter is a snow covered from porch with decoration, but even if you live somewhere where snow doesn?t come, you can make your own. Decorate the railings, posts and front door and the whole porch will pop out.

When you are browsing through outdoor Christmas decorating ideas you may notice that red is a popular color.

Another great way to find some unique outdoor Christmas decorating ideas is to simply drive around your neighborhood or another.

Wire frame sculptures are a popular display option for people to put in their yard, on the porch or indoors. These larger wire sculptures are usually outside and have Christmas lights along each wire. Kits that have the sculpture already created are available. However, it is a fun and rewarding process to create your own sculpture. You can make an economical and personalized wire frame sculpture by using common household clothes hangers.

Instructions

  1. Make the Frame

    • 1

      Bend heavy duty clothes hanger wire into the shape of your choice. Some popular sculptures are wreaths, snowmen, reindeer, and candy canes. To help form the shape use objects found around the house. For example, to bend the wire in a circle for a wreath wrap the wire around a coffee can. To make a square shape use the outside corner of a wall and push the wire over the corner. A Star of David can be formed using two pieces of wire shaped into a triangle then joined together. Christmas trees can be made by spiraling the wire with a large spiral at the bottom working each spiral smaller until you get to the top.

      Secure the ends of the clothes hanger wire by cutting three inch sections of floral wire. Wrap the floral wire around the hanger wire and twist like a bread bag tie.

    • 3

      Solder the joints and ends of the wire to permanently hold them in position. Follow the directions on the solder packaging. For example, the Christmas tree can have a straight rod of hanger wire soldered in the center of inside of the spiral. The end of the rod will be longer than the tree. One end will be left free to stick into the ground. The other end will be soldered to the small spiral at the top.

      Add other parts to the display by tying and soldering pieces together. Again with the Christmas tree example, you may add a small star at the top, or other wire formations.

  • Add the holiday lights to the wire frame sculpture. Secure the lights to the frame by wrapping crafting wire around the lights and the frame.

  • 6

    Add pine garland, pip berries, or holly leaves by attaching with the floral.

  • 7

    Balance the decorations on the sculpture. If your sculpture will be standing consider the weight distribution of the decorations. Too much weight toward one side may cause the sculpture to overturn.
