Have the Prettiest Mailbox on the Street This Christmas

Don't forget the mailbox when you put up your holiday decorations. Delight your neighbors, anyone passing by and even the mailman with seasonal swags of greenery on streetside postal box.

These artificial swags will last for years. Many of them have cordless lights that run on batteries or you can skip the lights if you prefer. There are many choices of bows and berries to brighten the holiday mailbox swags.

I'd like to get all the neighbors to decorate this way, for a new seasonal tradition on the street. These also make a great gift for friends and family to help them celebrate the season.

No More Struggling with My Outdoor Decorating

for the holidays

My husband has never been one to climb on the roof and string lights all around. I think he watched Chevy Chase go beserk trying to do that in National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation movie. Whatever... it discouraged him from the whole outdoor decorating binge that some men plunge into right after Thanksgiving.

That means if the exterior of our home is going to be festive, it's up to me. Well, I'm not climbing on the roof either. No ladder climbing for me.

I put a pair of wreaths on the double front doors. Fine... it looks okay, but doesn't satisfy my need to decorate. I didn't want to wrap the mailbox in a plastic Santa design and I wasn't very successful wrapping it in red ribbon in a spiral pattern.

Then I found these lovely draped greens with ribbons and lights. Perfect! Just place them over the mailbox and fasten the straps. Even I could handle that and no ladder was needed for the project.

This Swag Has Burgundy Accents

If my neighbors like the idea of the whole street decorating their postal boxes, there is plenty of variety in these decorative swags. Each house could stand out from the ones next to it with the varied ribbons, colors, and trims.


Your Postman Will Appreciate These Beautiful Garlands

And so will anyone driving down your street or visitors to your home. Your mailbox will be the envy of all the neighbors.

Coordinate with the Neighbors

Wouldn't your street look handsome if everyone joined in and decorated their mailbox too!

Handsome red ribbon sets this one off. It looks equally great draped over the mailbox or hung on your front door. The pine cones and the touches of red with that festive ribbon really makes it special.

All the pinecones and the fullness of this decorative piece makes it stand out. This one doesn't have lights, but is quite colorful with the red berries, the pine cones and the snowflakes.

Look how well this one shows up against the black background. I think it would look sharp on a white or silver one as well.

Lots of red berries and a dramatic red bow make this one stand out from the others.

      No, because I don't have one of these cool mailboxes. I would if I did! These are gorgeous and so pretty they could stay up for several months to brighten the winter days.
