It’s time to start decorating your home for the holidays. If you’re looking for creative ideas take a look at some of these suggestions.

Add lights: If you’re looking to add light to your yard, consider adding Christmas lights to your fence. You can go simple by adding strands of lights along the fence, or you can get creative to produce a light show on your fence by programming the lights.

Wreaths and garland: A classic holiday look is to drape garland along the fence and add a wreath at the fence posts. This will give your home an elegant look for the holidays.

Create presents and figures: If you’re looking to transform your fence into a holiday scene, you can cover it in a way that makes it look like giant presents around your yard. You can also purchase large images of Christmas characters and drape those over the fence to add Santa and the like to your holiday scene.
