Once the weather begins to change and the days become shorter, it's clear that winter is right around the corner. This makes it a perfect time to think about adding some seasonal touches to your home's exterior. Try these simple tips to create a cozy and inviting atmosphere all season long. 

 Hang String Lights
One way to welcome the changing of the seasons is to hang string lights around the outside of your home. You can place them above your deck, around your backyard, and on your porch to give your exterior a warm glow. Choose clear or white lights if you want to keep them up for the entire season. 

Spruce up Your Door or Balcony
Decorating your abode isn’t only for those who live in single-family houses. If you live in an apartment, you can embrace the season by decorating your door or balcony. 

  When decorating your front door or porch, use some small pieces that remind everyone of winter, including weathered crates, bare tree branches, and birch wood logs. The rustic look is a classic choice for winter. 

For your balcony, try adding some small fairy lights. These lights can brighten your space and are available in different shapes – snowflake fairy lights are a great pick this time of year! Greenery garland or a potted evergreen plant are great choices for a balcony or porch as well. 

Consider Everyday Wreaths
If you're looking to add a bit of color to the exterior of your home, think about adding a wreath to your front door, porch wall, or garage door. Wreaths are available in many different sizes and styles, and you can keep one up year-round, updating it to match the season. 

Hang a Bird Feeder
Brighten up the winter season by placing a bird feeder outside your window. Having a bird feeder in your yard gives you the opportunity to spot dashes of red, yellow, and blue amidst the somewhat dull backdrop. Remember to keep the bird feeder stocked and clean it regularly to keep a healthy environment for your feathered visitors. 

With the winter season fast approaching, now is a great time to decorate your home exterior. There are many wonderful winter decor ideas that you can implement in your home or apartment to create a warm and inviting atmosphere for you and your guests to enjoy.
