Throwing some Christmas lights on a tree in your front yard, or wrapping lights around your front door, are excellent ways to start decorating for the holiday season. However, if you really want to up your game this year, you may want to keep reading for a few spectacular ideas.
Here are 5 outdoor Christmas light ideas to get your creative juices flowing:
1. Pine Garland with Lights
Lights look gorgeous at Christmas and so does a bunch of evergreens, so why not combine the two for a little extra flair this holiday season? You can either wrap lights around pine garland yourself or you can purchase it already done for you. Then all you need to do is hang it around your door, wrap it around your front banister, or go all out by using it on your deck or gazebo.
2. Old Fashioned Lights on an Old Sled
We all remember those large Christmas light bulbs and while they were hard to find for a while, they are making a comeback nowadays. When you are decorating outside this year, you may want to take some of those lights and use them to decorate an old sled. The larger lights will stand out better than the smaller ones and you won’t need as many to make a big statement.
3. Make a Few Christmas Light Balls
Christmas light balls are easier to make than you think, so do not think that you do not have the time or patience to create amazing lighting in your yard this year. A few minutes of your time will have you placing colorful Christmas light balls anywhere that you want. Of course, you can also buy premade versions that fold down flat if you really want to take the easy way out this year!
4. Create Christmas Trees with Marquee Lights
If you do not have a huge Christmas tree in your front yard, you do not need to worry about Santa not coming to visit! All you need to do is make a few wooden Christmas trees and add marquee lighting to them. You can choose the colors of the trees and the lights but be prepared to have your neighbors come over to see how you made these unique decorations.
5. Hang Stars and Snowflakes in the Trees
Nothing says the holidays more than snowflakes and stars, so grab a bunch and hang them from the trees in your yard. Yes, it is best if they light up, but do fret if they don’t! At least your yard will look festive during the daytime hours.
These five outdoor lighting ideas are only the beginning of what you can do this upcoming Christmas season. Start thinking of what else is possible and before you know it, you will be more than ready to get things started for the most wonderful time of the year!
