It’s officially December, which means it’s finally acceptable to be excited for Christmas!
When it comes to bringing some festive cheer to the neighbourhood (and maybe starting some healthy competition amongst your neighbours), Christmas decorations can go from simple to extreme! But if you’re looking for a way to make a festive statement this year, there’s one way you may not have considered… your garage!
Whether you’re going all out with a custom banner, using a projector to create a light show or having some fun decorating inside the garage, why not spread the Christmas cheer and make your garage a focal point this year.
If you’re having friends or family around to celebrate, we suggest double checking government websites to ensure you are up to date on the COVID restrictions so you can have a happy and healthy Christmas!
Here are some fun ways to decorate your garage and creatively utilise your space this festive season.
Put on a show!
One of the easiest ways to decorate your garage is to use your garage door as a canvas for projecting images! Flexilight NZ have plenty of options that are easy to install and are weather resistant. You could have images of Santa, a snowman and a Christmas tree projected onto your garage door or if you want to take the festivities to the next level, they also have moving red and green firefly and cosmic patterns.
If you’re itching for Christmas day, they even have a Christmas countdown projector! They also come with stakes for installing outside or if you’re having a Christmas party indoors, you can get wall and table mounts.
Wow with a banner!
If you want decorations that are quick and easy to install, without the DIY aspect, opt for a garage door banner. Etsy has a range of Christmas banners in a variety of sizes, or you can ask for your own custom size. It’s a great way to draw the attention of your neighbours during the day! Most banners are designed to ensure that your garage door is still functional and can move up and down, and can be used again and again!
Don’t forget inside!
If you’re using your garage as a dining space for your holiday guests, then it needs some festive flair too! Hang fairy lights and tinsel around the room, add a Christmas tree or some holiday characters and you’ve got an amazing space to entertain! If you don’t need to use the garage door that day, you could even hang some recycled fabric in festive colours!
Your garage can be the designated games room, the kids’ room hang out space, or a sleepover zone when tired visitors can stay over.
