Keep reading to learn how to decorate a deck for Christmas and best utilize your outdoor space during the holidays. 

Make A Fire

A fire is a great way to cozy up even the coldest of environments. But if you don’t have a built-in fire pit, this can be a safety hazard. Fortunately, you can “fake” the look of a real fire using fairy lights. Fairy lights, as opposed to regular string lights, have thinner cables, making the wiring less noticeable. Additionally, some brands come with battery packs so you don’t have to run an extension chord to your fire! While the fake fire might not provide any heat, it is a great way to decorate a deck for Christmas and create visual coziness. 

Add Some Greenery

With a little creativity, garlands and wreaths can transform your outdoor space into a festive wonderland—after all, Christmas isn’t Christmas without greenery! Adorn your windows and doorways with lush, green garlands (real or fake). Don’t forget to include deck railings and pergola poles as potential places to showcase your garlands. No matter where you decide to put it, you can’t go wrong with greenery as outdoor Christmas decorations.

Don’t Forget the Tree

Set up a couple of trees and decorate them with weather-proof ornaments for a touch of classic Christmas when decorating your deck or patio.  This simple touch makes things instantly festive and also provides a stunning backdrop for photos on a snowy Christmas morning. 

Use Natural Elements

Take a walk around your property and collect natural elements like pine cones as well as berry clippings and greenery clippings to create stunning, all-natural outdoor deck Christmas decorations. The elements gathered can be used to make homemade wreaths, garlands, or even ornaments. Using what nature has provided adds a touch of rustic charm to your outdoor space, plus it saves money! 

Light Up The Night

When it comes to transforming your outdoor space for Christmas, lights are everything. You can wrap them around railings, pair them with garland, or string them above the patio like bistro lights. Once the sun sets,l enjoy the warm glow and pop of color with your friends and family.
