Frame the Front Door
If you don’t want to go crazy with a light extravaganza all over the exterior of your home, focus your efforts on the front door. You can use lights, wreaths, garlands, and other decorations to frame the entrance and add some major curb appeal. It is also fun to place a small tree filled with lights on either side of the door to really make things sparkle.
Lighting the walkway to your home can be a great addition throughout the year, but it will add special warmth during the holiday season when the days are short. Many new luminaires are solar-powered, so you don’t have to mess around with batteries or candles. There are also many different styles to choose from. You can go with Christmas-themed figures or more traditional lights.
There are great oversized ornaments that double as globe shades that you can place throughout your yard. Hang them from trees or place them in clusters on the lawn for a bright and festive decoration.
Want all the aesthetic appeal of Christmas lights without the work? A projector display can cover your entire home with moving lights. You can even sync the lights with music and customize all sorts of displays.
Cascading Tree Lights
Icicle lights have long been a popular decoration. Cascading tree lights are similar, but they are much longer and can be draped over tree branches to illuminate trees without having to wrap lights around trunks and branches.
This DIY project includes using chicken wire to shape globes that can then be covered in Christmas lights. Make all different sizes and place them along your porch and in your yard for a more contemporary look.
Fortunately, there are always great new lighting products entering the market that help homeowners get creative with their holiday light displays. For more ideas and help installing, removing, and storing your lights, contact the experts at JT’s Landscaping.
