Outdoor Christmas Decorations

Rob Stone

Many of us love having Christmas at home, with a particular activity in the run up to Christmas, that being hanging up the Christmas ornament. As well as this, many of us love the process of outdoor Christmas decorations. Many families spend a large budget on sourcing a large range of beautiful lighting and decorations as well as humorous options such as large Santa’s and reindeers and flashing lights.

In some suburbs families have been known to compete on a friendly basis in who can produce the most colourful and illuminated home with an array of lights and decorations without forgetting the Christmas tree. Turning the front lawn and front of the house into a winter wonderland can mean your home becomes talk of the town.

A particular Christmas scene is one of the wonderful options of outdoor Christmas decorations. It can be Father Christmas waving to people as he passes by on his sleigh and reindeers on a bed of snow. Other ideas could include a Smiling snowmen with noses that light up to a range of holographic images onto the grass. Don’t forget the tree, or a range of smaller trees which you can find in a range of fun colours such as red, silver, gold, green, blue, white, pink, or maroon among others. If you are not a fan of inflatable Christmas characters, then fibreglass or plastic figures can be a good alternative and lit up from inside.

When hanging outdoor light decorations, there are several safety aspects to take into consideration before you can enjoy the full effect of the addition to your winter garden. Lay out the strands of lights across your driveway, removing any entanglements, twists or kinks. Make sure there are no broken bulbs or split wires, which could cause injury.

Use hooks and clips when you hang the lights, to position the lighting with enough slack between each hook or clip so not to pull the cabling. Never use staple or nails as this can easily split the wires causing electric or fire hazard. Turn on your lights and enjoy the superb show you had in your imagination right in front of your eyes.

If you have an interest in crafts or a creative side then a even better thrill would be to make your own outdoor Christmas decorations. Being able so spell out Merry Christmas across your grass with your own creation could give a even better thrill than purchasing readymade decorations.

On a craft note, handmade snowflakes are always popular and look superb hanging from garden trees, maybe with a range of boxes at the bottom wrapped in paper of shiny coloured foil and bows, to look like Christmas presents. The only limit is your imagination. You can also find a great range of Christmas Decorations online.
