11. Drape Icicle Lights on Your Fences
Icicle lights along fences convey a sense of falling snow, creating a striking wintry scene. You can choose icicle lights that change color, twinkle, or are remote-controlled. Draping mini lights on your fence will also create an attractive border around your property.

Accentuate the neutral doorway with outdoor decorations in white and silver. The shimmering decorations against a pale background will leave a subtle and beautiful frosty feel. You can place a mint green garland to complete the setup.
