Easy Winter Curb Appeal

In winter, when pretty mailbox garden flowers have faded (thanks to sleet and snow and heavy frosts) your roadside mailbox can look about as appealing as a hangman's gibbet. A magnetic mailbox cover, however, can easily change all that, adding visual interest to your home's exterior. In fact, magnetic mailbox covers are one of the easiest, most fuss-free ways to increase your house's curb appeal, even when the weather's grim.

Because they're magnetic, the mailbox covers featured below fit easily over your mailbox, and they won't fall off or blow away like tie-on or Velcro covers. Check them out! Some are just for the holidays while others will look just right all winter long.

Winter Fun Mailbox Covers

What are the best ways to while away a winter afternoon?

  • A snowball fight with the kids.
  • Ice skating on a local pond. (Hope your ankles are strong!)
  • Sledding in the backyard.
  • Or wrapping up tight and taking a walk through the woods. Later, by the fire, swap stories with your family and friends while sipping cocoa, hot cider or (maybe) something a bit stronger.

These are just a few of the homely joys of winter that the mailbox covers right celebrate.

Poinsettia Mailbox Covers

Like amaryllis, pine and mistletoe, poinsettias are among the best-loved winter holiday plants. It's no wonder then that as the winter holidays approach, homeowners often find themselves arranging poinsettias throughout their homes--on mantles, in groups by the fireplace, as tabletop centerpieces, around Christmas trees.

If you love poinsettias but live in a cold climate that's unsuitable for growing them outdoors year round, you can nevertheless adorn your home outside as well as inside with the flamboyant beauty of the poinsettia by fitting your mailbox with a poinsettia magnetic mailbox cover.

Nature Mailbox Covers for Winter

Who doesn't love the bright young green of spring, the vibrant hues of summer and the warm, earthy tones of fall?

Like the other seasons, winter too has its beauty. Glistening snowflakes, bright red cardinals, berries dangling from leafless bushes--these and other charming scenes from nature are lovely reminders of the visual richness of the cold season.

The magnetic mailbox covers to the right capture some of most gorgeous wintertime scenes.

The Dirt Farmer: What an attractive, fascinating, practical presentation on mailbox covers which help their owners celebrate the holidays! Me too, I agree that it brightens and warms the landscape to have such colorful and seasonable covers in place during the colder weather. The country home and poinsettia are among my favorites.

Thank you for sharing, etc.,

One year I tried making a mailbox cover for my aunt. I painted it with t-shirt paint - one side had a spring scene on it and the other was decorated with poinsettias. It was made out of a denim dinner napkin and Velcro to hold it onto the mailbox. Even though she loved the cover, she said that she couldn't use it because there was no hole for the flag. Ooops! Well, that can be easily fixed for future projects.

Thank you for the fun ideas - and for bringing up a fun memory for me.
