If you want to remain simple yet aesthetically stunning, don’t drape it too densely instead of that, try to highlight its shape by putting the light strings only on its edges.
Deck your main gate with a garland
Use Christmas greenery and lights to decorate your main gate, which allow your guests to enter the front yard. Stick a bunch of green twigs at the center of the gate and hang a garland that is made up of both greenery and lights in such a way that it highlights the gate effectively.
