Now is the time of year that businesses are decorating for the holidays, but those chain link fences and ornamental iron fences tend to get forgotten. Most people don't think it's an important area to decorate, but why not continue the festive vibes outside? There are safe and cool ways to decorate that fencing like the inside of your building.
Planning Your Décor
According to DFW Lights, a professional lighting company, fences provide great canvases for holiday décor. There are a few things you'll want to consider before embarking on this decorating journey. The type of fence around your property plays a significant role in your decorating, along with weather concerns.
Chain link fences, for instance, produce an almost transparent background for your décor, so parts of your decorations blend into the landscape. Using bulkier material will help your ideas stand out more. In the valley, you won't have to worry so much about massive snowstorms messing with holiday lighting on your fences, but you still should be concerned about windstorms.
In the winter, the valley can get big storms that produce lots of wind, and this wind can take unsecured garland right off your fence. Make sure to use quality, water-resistant mounting materials and lighting. They will help ensure that your display lasts through any storms you may face.
Festive Ideas for Chain Link Fences
Garlands and wreaths can work on almost all fence types and are an easy way to add a festive touch to the outside of your business. Chain link fences provide you with an excellent opportunity to create messages and patterns in lights. They also make it easy for you to hang large ornaments on the fencing as well.
Using artificial, bulky greenery will give you better long-term use because you won't have to worry about it drying out or losing needles. Tinsel garland or large ribbon are good alternatives as well. No matter what material you use, make sure that it is bulky enough to stand out and can withstand the season's weather trends.
If you want to add more drama to your decorating, draping your garland is a great way to do so. Make sure when hanging it, you aim for consistency, so it doesn't look sloppy. Use wire, zip ties, or twist ties to hold the garland in place.
Back to the earlier lighting suggestion, just like your garland, make sure to use consistency when hanging light strands. You'll want to make sure to secure your lights to the fence like your garland.
Finally, don't be afraid to use your whole fence. You can use the lower portion of your fencing to attach holiday characters, symbols, candy canes, oversized ornaments, and even more garland. Your only limits are your imagination and your budget. Come up with a theme or idea you'd like to see outside your business and go from there.
