One of the great pleasures of Christmas is the decoration that accompanies the holiday. And you can’t even start thinking about decorating for Christmas without thinking about Christmas lights. One of families’ favorite vacation pastimes is LED Christmas Lights driving around their neighborhoods looking at all the wonderful light displays. There are so many ways to go when it comes to decorating with lights and there are a few important factors to consider.
When exterior decorating with Christmas lights, there is much more that can be done with them besides outlining the roof and windows. While this is a beautiful way to decorate, it does not have to be abandoned altogether but can be supplemented with other types of lighting such as LED Christmas lights which are also energy efficient.
There are many molds and outlines that can be used with lights, such as reindeer or stars, and these can be beautifully illuminated with lights. To make these decorations “pop”, use a different color for each decoration. This will prevent them from mixing together and create a very beautiful display.
Another thing that can be done with the holiday lights is to make a wreath for the front door. Again, there are frames that can be used and the lights can be beautifully wrapped around the frame and hung on a door. Mini lights are wonderful for this purpose and can create a truly unique decoration!
Another popular decoration that can be used with Christmas lights is to buy plastic candles that are beautifully lit from within with a light. There are small candles that can be bought and placed inside the house on the windows. For a bolder look, there are very large candles that can be purchased and placed outside. When doing this, it is good to line a sidewalk or driveway with them or even outline a conservatory. These lights can be a very beautiful addition to any Christmas garden.
It is important to choose your color wisely when it comes to holiday lights. There are many available, but you don’t want to overwhelm your lawn or home with too wide a selection. Whenever that color is used, it is wise to keep a solid color on a string, especially if describing a shape like a reindeer or a star. Multi-colored ropes work well with the outer cladding of trees and can really add to the beauty of the tree. It is also important to consider the type of light. There are icicles, net lights, flashing lights, trackers, lights that have several different speeds and can flash quickly or slowly, or lights that do nothing but shine. When combining different types of lights, it is best to stick with no more than three different types. By combining too many different types of lights, it only makes the lawn appear cluttered and overwhelming.
