Please note: To avoid garage door track repairs, make sure that Christmas lights or decorations are not interfering with your garage door’s mechanical components.

Here are six simple ideas to decorate your garage door for Christmas.

1. Create a Lighted Christmas Tree

Use decorative stickers to place directly on the garage door for a quick, festive touch. If you don’t want to hang or place anything beside the garage door, this option is a great alternative.

6. Project Your Christmas Decorations

This idea works great if you don’t have time to put up Christmas decorations. Just place a projector facing your garage door with your choice of design, whether it’s a holiday theme or a family Christmas portrait.
