Vintage Winter Wreath
For a twist on a standard front-door wreath, layer fresh greenery with a pair of vintage children's ice skates.
Warm Tropical Colors
Colorful lights bring a festive Christmas feel to this tropical location. The deep warm tones of yellow, red and green coordinate with the warm climate. The lighted palm trees reflect off the water for a stunning effect.
Antique Christmas Toys
Antique toy soldiers greet guests at HGTV fan Leanne Michael Interiors' home. A 6-foot Santa dressed in a velvet robe embellished with crystals provides an elegant entrance to the home.
Life-Size Gingerbread House
This Arizona home's exterior is covered with candy decorations to resemble a gingerbread house. Lemon wedges, gumballs and wafer cookies surround the entrance to the home, and HGTV fan DebbieKennAZ added a "Santa Stop Here" sign and elf decor to enhance the Christmas spirit.
Rustic Christmas Porch
HGTV fan sueshome brought a rustic country theme to her Maryland home during the holidays. Most of the decor is from a flea market and is mixed with readily available natural elements.
Christmas Train Ride
The main attraction in this stunning Christmas display is the Polar Express train, complete with passengers. The over-the-top whimsical decorations make this yard an interactive Christmas wonderland for kids.
Santa's workshop is tucked away in North Carolina where HGTV fan Faeryhollow transformed her garden shed into a space for Santa and his helpers to prepare for Christmas. The candy cane-theme gives the shed a warm, inviting look.
Dr. Seuss Inspiration
HGTV fan ckhas found inspiration from writer Dr. Seuss when decorating the front porch for Christmas. Colorful bright ornaments and a wreath correlate with Dr. Seuss' vibrant illustrations in his children's books. Simple garland adds greenery to the space.
Everything's bigger in Texas, including Christmas. HGTV fan Maxine placed three oversized wreaths on the house and added large lights as a border for the front lawn. The lights are carried through to the garage for an even more extravagant look.
A Classic Christmas
For a clean, symmetrical look follow HGTV fan tryinghard's lead. Classic Christmas decor like simple green garland and wreaths with red bows give a traditional Christmas feel to the home. The peppermint decorations, simply made with some paint and scrap wood, add a pop of color.
HGTV fan Pinky S. purchased Santa's sleigh from an Amish antique shop in Pennsylvania for a vintage-inspired look. A lighted reindeer and presents add some sparkle to the front porch. A sitting snowman and wooden Santa give guests a whimsical greeting.
The all-white Christmas decor on HGTV fans Joshua & Mary Anne's white Maine home emits a crisp winter feel. White lights in the windows enhance the bright design.
Covered in Lights
A tunnel of lights greets guests walking up the driveway of this decked-out home. An oversize "NOEL" sign and lighted candy canes enhance the larger-than-life design. With practically every inch of the house covered, this house can't be missed from miles away.
An Abundance of Wreaths
Each window on this Massachusetts home is covered by simple green wreaths for a classic Christmas look. HGTV fan MIA123 embellished the simple look with bright icicle lights on the porch and lights around the shrubbery.
Candy Land Lights
More than 30,000 lights adorn this Candy Land-themed home. HGTV fan Lulabel incorporated nontraditional blue lights into her New York home's Christmas decor for a bold look.
Rows of candy canes on the lawn and walkway provide a sparkling pathway. Oversize red bows and hanging garland stand out against the white house.
