Happy Holidays! We hope your fall holiday season in Southeastern Wisconsin is off to a fun start. At Joe Wilde Company, we love the holiday season and enjoy sharing ways to be festive. In recent years, technology and new creative developments have brought a favorite product of our business – the garage door – into the holiday spirit. Now the largest feature on the front of your home has become a beautiful blank canvas for decorating during the holidays! Here are a few decorating ideas for your Wisconsin garage door to make your home even more festive this season. Let us show you how to make your own garage door holiday decorations by using things you may already have!
There are two important criteria to keep in mind when placing decorations on the garage door. First, the decoration must not damage the door. Second, the door must remain fully functional with the decoration installed. Stores that sell holiday decorations have a hardware section where you can find a wide assortment of mounting products. These include non-permanent hooks and clips, magnetic hangers, and suction cups. Look for hangers that are non-permanent and will not damage the paint on the garage door when removed. When installing any decoration, make sure there is enough room between the door and the ceiling inside the garage when the door is open so that decoration does not get damaged or interfere with the door and opener.
Red ribbons and bows are used to decorate trees and presents and can also be used as garage door holiday decorations. Make your garage door look like a giant, wrapped present by mounting a red bow across it. Place a red ribbon lengthwise across and up and down the door. Finish the look with a tied bow placed in the center of the ribbon crossing.
A green wreath on the front door of the home is one of the oldest traditional decorations, dating back thousands of years. Later adopted by the Christian faith, wreaths are used to observe the Advent season. A wreath hung on the door or a window serves as an invitation to the spirit of Christmas to enter the home. It is a beautiful way to welcome guests as they enter your home during the holidays.
The garage door is the largest entry point to your home and is usually where the family enters the home. Consider taking advantage of that large, blank space to display a giant wreath or red bow to welcome you and your family home every day.
If whimsical decorations are more suited to your style, consider the option of magnet-backed decorations, which adhere easily to a steel garage door. Craft stores and online sellers offer an assortment of colorful printed magnet decorations. Rather than one giant magnet, these large scenes will typically come in multiple pieces, giving you freedom in how you arrange the design. At Joe Wilde Company, we love this option because it will not damage your garage door, it is waterproof, and you can reuse it year after year.
Modern and Engaging
Laser light technology has led to the creation of the most modern way to decorate your garage door. We love this option the most because it creates absolutely no threat of damage to your garage door. Small projectors connected to a power source are staked into the ground facing the garage door. This product projects laser lights in patterns onto the garage door. Light patterns are either steady or can rotate through a movement pattern to create an eye-catching and engaging presentation. Choose from snowflakes, colored dots, or even images of snowmen and Santa Claus, all projected harmlessly onto your garage door. You have complete control over when the decoration is displayed by turning it on or off.
