Last-Minute Ideas for your Outdoor Holiday Lighting

December 15, 2021

Christmas is only weeks away. If you need to incorporate some last-minute outdoor holiday lighting ideas, now’s the time to do it! Here are a few bright insights to give you outdoor holiday lighting ideas before Christmas arrives. Of course, your other option is hiring professional designers to prepare your home for the holidays. The holiday season is meant for celebrating family and cherishing special moments, not stressing over your Christmas light installation.

Pre-Lit Garlands and Wreaths

This option saves time. Pre-lit outdoor Christmas wreaths and garlands are stylish, made from weather-resistant materials, and feature UV-treated foliage for lasting vibrance. Typically, pre-lit greenery is wired with either warm white or multicolored string lights and come in various lengths and diameters. Whether you prefer a soft glow similar to candlelight or a festive display with multicolor lighting, pre-lit garlands and wreaths provide decorating flexibility.

Festive Light Spheres

Light spheres create a gorgeous scene! With many colors and options to choose from, you can personalize your space easily. Light spheres can be battery-operated or plugged into an outlet. Light sphere display options include hanging from tree branches, placed on top of vases, used as a chandelier above an outdoor dining area, and as a table centerpiece. These festive balls can be used exclusively or incorporated into your Christmas light display theme.

Merry Net Lights

Net lights are simple to use and add holiday charm to your landscape. Net lights are fantastic for lighting a large area in a snap! Net lights are string lights that have been connected to form a grid, which can easily cover the exterior of bushes, hedges, and tree trunks and are one of the easiest ways to light greenery for the holidays. Typically, net lights use LED bulbs making them durable and energy efficient. Net lights provide quick, uniform coverage for your outdoor greenery that will last all season.

Outdoor LED Christmas Tree

LED outdoor Christmas trees are perfect for last minute finishing touches. You only need 15 minutes to assemble them and then let the remote control do the rest. These outdoor Christmas trees feature hundreds of LED mini lights that twinkle, flash, chase, and dance, in pre programmed sequences. There are a variety of sizes available, from tall to enormous! The frames are made from thick powder-coated metal and set up is simple and fast. You can have an amazing light show in your yard in just minutes.

Solar Rope Lights

Rope lights are an easy and decorative lighting choice for any time of the year. Try out the solar-charged models to accent or trim your home with less hassle. Waterproof and weather-resistant, solar rope lights are ideal for wrapping pillars, fences, railings, trees, and columns. They’re great for trimming the edges of roofs, windows, and lawns. Rope lights are made of flexible material and can bend to fit any shape or space.

Copper Wire Fairy Lights

Copper Wire LED Lights are gaining a lot of popularity. They are super small micro-LEDs that produce a realistic twinkle effect. The copper cord is extremely flexible, stays put wherever you arrange it, and disappears into any background. There is no limit to the various ways wire fairy lights can be used. Create a wreath out of lights, tuck them into a clear vase or wine bottle, wrap them around your potted plants, or fashion your own shape out of these flexible lights. Copper wire fairy lights may look delicate, but they are water-resistant and durable. Purchase special sets that connect, and you can expand your design to cover larger areas.

Foldable Shining Snowflakes

What image represents the winter season? Snowflakes! Even if snow is not in the forecast, you can create your own snow showers with these unique, brightly lit snowflakes. Elevate your Christmas light display by hanging these twinkling snowflakes from tree branches, in windows, and around the perimeter of your roof. Both sides are illuminated, providing a seasonal glow from every direction. The best part is when the season is over, the snowflakes fold up for easy storage.
