Last Minute Outdoor Christmas Decorating Ideas!

Christmas is almost here! The excitement is building and the countdown is on. But if you’ve been too busy to decorate, don’t worry! We can help get your home looking festive in a snap with these outdoor Christmas decorating tips.

The holidays aren’t complete without lights on your home, but it can be time consuming and frustrating to hang strand upon strand of tangled Christmas lights. Thankfully this year, there are different products to keep your house illuminated without the hassle of conventional string lights. There are many different brands of laser lights that will project thousands of dazzling stars onto your home. The only setup required is plugging the device in and positioning it in your front or backyard so that it will cover the whole house. Your home can be a beacon of cheer with a few minutes of work!

With the lights taken care of, assembling a few other pieces will bring your outdoor Christmas decorating look together. One of our favourite tips is to reuse plant containers that once held beautiful flowers in the spring and summer, and fill them with Christmas decorations. Use evergreen boughs, tree ornaments, pinecones, or even bows or branches that have been spray-painted in festive colours. The possibilities are limited only by your imagination! Containers can be placed in flowerbeds to provide a pop of colour, to line the driveway or flank the front door to create a welcoming entrance.

Finally, add some grandeur to your front yard with a statement piece. A popular option is to have inflatable characters, like Santa or Frosty the Snowman, in the yard. These outdoor Christmas decorations can be purchased at most stores and are easily installed.

If you have an evergreen tree in your yard, you can decorate it to look just like an indoor Christmas tree. For an added wow-factor and cheer, add some boxes wrapped in holiday paper under the tree.
