Magical Outdoor Christmas Lights
Outdoor Christmas decorative lights can animate your yard for visual appeal and a touch of festivity.
LEDs are a great option for outdoor decoration; cool to touch, energy-efficient, and environmentally friendly, they come in a variety of bulb shapes and colors. LEDs emit brilliant light for light displays with dazzling effect. Consider that battery-operated options are also available.
Mind that in the yard and garden you should apply lights for outdoor use; generally, safety should be a major consideration.
Some of the popular spots for applying outdoor lights are: atop bushes, hedges, and trees; along rooflines; around pillars, posts, and focal points; near driveways and walkways; and inside planters.
Icicle, string, and rope lights work perfectly for trees and rooflines; opt for white-colored icicles for a wintry display.
Drape icicle lights over arbors or trellises to highlight them and create eye-catching focal points. Hanging lantern pendants from sturdy tree branches is also a great idea; they offer a welcoming glow and add a touch of magic to the yard. Snowflake- shaped lights are another hanging option.
For trees that are close together, stretch a lit wire and string some shooting stars for a striking light display.
Net lights are a great choice for decorating shrubs and bushes; they come in an assortment of colors and can transform your garden for a wow effect.
Consider cascade and snowfall lights; designed to emulate falling snow, they create a crisp winter look.
Illuminate exterior buildings, such as garden sheds; lights beautify and give them a new dimension; add lanterns or pre-lit figurines to outline the walkway.
You can use Christmas items, such as Christmas trees and lit nativity scenes to decorate the yard for a classic look. Artificial pre-lit trees are always a great idea; opt for spiral or silhouette trees for a modern look and an amazing light display.
Use Christmas-themed lit figurines, silhouettes, and motifs to create stunning arrangements for the open spaces in the yard; you can choose from an array of options; inflatable decoration items are a trendy choice; lighted inflatable ornaments are also available.
Utilize empty hanging baskets; add a string of lights for a twinkling display and large ornaments in metallic colors for extra reflection. Arrange planters and pots with evergreen trees covered with white twinkling mini lights for a glistening snow effect.
Generally, wash in lights all of the landscape elements to give your outdoor space a unique, festive look.
