Outdoor Christmas Decoration Ideas to Light Up Your Yard

 

Here are some outdoor Christmas decoration ideas to spice up your yard:

1. Light Up the Path

Create a lighted walkway by using small Christmas trees adorned with lights. Use luminaries to decorate your pathway and add a festive feel to your yard. Set timers with the lights to put them on and off with sunrise and sunset.

2. Decorate the Front Door

Hang a garland or hand painted sign on your front yard to welcome your guests in style. Add red bows and ornaments to your garland to make it more elegant and welcoming. Make your entryway bright colored by adding a red scarf, lanterns or stars.

3. Beautify Your Fence

Hang wreaths along your fence to accent your yard in the Christmas spirit. Let your family members create their own wreath and put them along the fence in a unique way. Put some brightly colored ornaments besides your fence.

4. Place Accent Lights

Add a decorative touch to your yard by placing Christmas lights around potted plants and trees. Hang rope lights along the fence lines and lamp posts. Use different colors of lights for a more festive look.

5. Add a Christmas Touch

Put hand painted snowmen, sleds, Santa on your lawn to bring the Christmas feel and fun in your yard. Hang snowflakes throughout your yard or along the fence. Place some faux snow balls to add a while Christmas touch.

6. Use Musical Lights

Add a Christmas-y effect to your decorations by setting lighted sculptures to music, so your neighbors and visitors can enjoy Christmas carols. Lively Christmas music with glowing lights makes your yard a great attraction for kids.

7. Outdoor Christmas Tree

Put a fully decorated classic Christmas tree on your porch to get appreciation from your visitors. Deck it up with Christmas cheer by placing Santa's burlap sack and a vintage sled besides the tree.

8. Winter Decor

Heaps of snow covering some parts of your lawn can bring winter decor to your yard. Hang garlands adorned with string lights and copper tea lights along your porch to make your yard come to life on a winter day.

9. Joyful Christmas Signs

Place sign boards displaying seasonal greetings to wow your guests and greet them in style. "JOY" sign makes a great impression on your visitors and adds a unique touch to your Christmas decor.

10. Decorate Your Walkway

Place small Christmas trees or starlight stakes on both sides of the walkway to decorate your yard and blend well with the rest of your Christmas lights. If your entire home is decorated in warm tones, walkway trees featuring warm, white LED lights are a good choice. The starlight stakes can be LED or incandescent and can be different colors.
 

11. Drape Icicle Lights on Your Fences

Icicle lights along fences convey a sense of falling snow, creating a striking wintry scene. You can choose icicle lights that change color, twinkle, or are remote-controlled. Draping mini lights on your fence will also create an attractive border around your property.

12. Hang a Wreath

You can hang a festive wreath on your front door to show your Christmas spirit to anyone that enters your house. You can also hang a basket containing ornaments, pine cones, and winter greens to complement your patio. 

13. Real Greens

If vibrant red hues and twinkling lights are not quite your style, you can go for an organic approach. Place real potted Christmas trees with a few fairy lights to create a stunning arrangement at your home’s entrance. You can also decorate the trees with clusters of lanterns for an elegant finish. 

14. Set a Silvery Scene

Accentuate the neutral doorway with outdoor decorations in white and silver. The shimmering decorations against a pale background will leave a subtle and beautiful frosty feel.  You can place a mint green garland to complete the setup. 
 

It's time to get in the festive spirit and decorate your outdoor space for the holiday.

Merry Christmas!
