Classic Outdoor Christmas Decorating

Hang Christmas Lights Across The Roof and Down the Driveway

The three most popular light styles for hanging across the roof are C7 and C9 light bulbs as well as Icicle string lights. Hang Christmas lights in one solid color or create a cheerful holiday theme using combinations of red and green, blue and white or red, white and green!

Christmas Porch Decorations

Wrap your porch railings and staircase in string lights to match your roof lighting or decorate with greenery and matching bows.

If you don't want to get up on the roof or you're looking to add even more lighting to your home, hang moravian stars, starlight spheres or lighted snowflake decorations across the porch. You can even mix and match all three light to create a stunning light filled Christmas collage.

Light Wrapped Trees

Wrapping outdoor trees with string lights is a very popular outdoor Christmas decorating idea. Mini lights are perfect for wrapping most outdoor trees, however if you have large evergreens you may want to use C7 or C9 light strings for greater impact. If you choose to wrap one tree or create a forest filled with light, one thing is certain...the result will be breathtaking!

DIY Christmas Decorations

Love to DIY? So do we! There are plenty of amazing DIY decorating projects out there for the holidays, but this one is our favorite because it uses gardening tools you probably already have in your shed! Create tomato cage Christmas trees to use in the yard or linking the walkway by wrapping them in string lights and garland!

Here are a few of our favorite light styles for wrapping tomato cages:

Short On Time?

We have a few new products we think you're going to love! Set up is a cinch and storage is no problem with our new laser lights and fold flat christmas trees and spheres.

Laser Light Projectors

Point laser lights toward the front of your house or a tree line to create amazing light displays with a reach of up to 300ft. You can even mix and match colors and choose from steady or animated lighting for a one-of-a-kind design, to best fit your landscape!

Fold Flat Christmas Spheres

Fold flat spheres are collapsable for easy storage and pop open in seconds for convenient display! Place lighted spheres in varying sizes and colors across the yard to create an eye catching Christmas display. You can even hang starlight spheres and Christmas light balls from tree branches or across the porch. When evening arrives they will look like brilliant orbs suspended in the air!

Net Lights

Not sure what to do with those bushes across the front of your house or lining your fence? Cover bushes and shrubs with net lights to create uniform lighting fast! If you've already decorated the porch with lights, use net lights in a complementary hue to add festive contrast in your outdoor Christmas display.
