There are countless ways to make the facade of your mobile home look festive and welcoming without having to spend a fortune. With just a little bit of creativity, some elbow grease, and some good ol’ art and craft supplies, you can have Christmas decorations that will be the envy of the neighborhood.
Whether you’re into classic Christmas decors or some avant-garde design, our list of easy DIY projects can help make your mobile home holiday ready.
You don’t have to spend money on your garlands. Instead of buying fake ones, why not opt for fresh greenery garlands from fir, pine, boxwood, and cedar? The good thing about using them is the “festive” scent. After all, nothing beats the sweet and refreshing smell of real leaves.
If you worry that your fresh garlands and wreaths would look awful after a few days, opt for boxwood because it dries beautifully. Also, their leaves don’t fall out and their branches tend to maintain their form.
You can hang your fresh garland to a door frame and wrap it around your outdoor railing and porch columns. Then, add some ribbons, cut-outs made of vibrant construction paper, crystal balls, candy canes, and other symbols associated with the holiday.
Tie together multiple bells and add some fresh greenery, an oversized plaid ribbon, red berries, and pine cones. And voila, you can now hang them on the front door!
Do you have a bench on your patio? Why not throw some plaid pillows on it to make your entryway festive and welcoming to the guests? You only need an inexpensive fleece blanket and a sewing machine for this easy DIY project.
To take your porch to the next level, why not arrange a neat pile of firewood by the front door for a wintery display. Then, right next to the bench, place a small side table with a tray filled with dried pine cones, red berries, and freshly cut greenery. You can also opt for floral arrangements for Christmas.
