This holiday season, treat your garage door like a blank canvas and have some fun with Christmas decorations. Ranging from simple options you can do with children to more high-tech, complex options, garage door Christmas décor comes in wonderous varieties. There’s a way to bring the holiday spirit to your home’s exterior whatever your holiday preferences or skill level. Today, we at AAA Action Doors would like to offer decorating ideas for your garage door while avoiding damage.
Do Magnets Work on Garage Doors?
A low-commitment way to spruce up your garage door for Christmas are decorative holiday magnets. From letters spelling out “Merry Christmas” to a giant snowman’s face or Santa on his sleigh, you can find them in many designs. To ensure it sticks and that you can open and close the door while it’s in place, place one magnet on the door before going forward with the entire design. As you don’t want them to bend or crack when you open the door be sure not to put them over the door’s seams when hanging the magnets.
Hang Christmas Lights Around a Garage Door
Join in the fun and hang a few strands around the opening of your garage door if your neighborhood goes all out when it comes to holiday lights. You don’t limit the use of your garage during the holiday season, hang the lights around the door frame rather than crisscrossing the door. It is up to you whether you go with white holiday lights or multi-colored lights. If there isn’t an outdoor outlet handy or you want to keep your electric bills in check this season, choose solar powered. Lights use gutter clips that press into the garage’s exterior when hanging the lights, not into the door frame itself. As it removes quickly and without leaving holes behind, another option is peel-and-stick light hooks.
Can You Use a Projector on a Garage Door?
Set up a projector to show festive images onto the door front if you’re looking for a quick and easy way to add holiday flair to your garage door this Christmas. You can choose a static image, such as a holiday wreath or a nativity scene is another option is a moving image that plays on a loop. Make sure you buy one that’s made for the outdoors when choosing a projector. It should be able to handle the Las Vegas weather conditions.
Make Garage Door Look Like a Present
If you have a lot of holiday wrapping paper left over from last year, you can put it to good use by wrapping up your garage door like a present. A budget-friendly way to add some holiday cheer is wrapping your garage door. As you may need to patch it up or replace sections throughout the season, once you’ve wrapped up the door, keep some of the paper in reserve.
Hang Garland on Garage Door
Another way to add some Christmas spirit to your curb appeal is draping your garage door with an evergreen garland. It looks elegant and sophisticated and will complement carriage house garage doors and other traditional styles.
