The Best Outdoor Christmas Lights to Make Your House Merry + Bright
After you've decked your halls and your tree, it's time to take the holiday glow outside. We've rounded up the best sparkle and shine for your home's exterior.
One of our family holiday traditions is to put on our pajamas, fill travel cups with hot chocolate and drive around looking for Christmas lights. Our local moms' blog keeps a running list of the best streets and parks, so definitely do a search for "Christmas lights" in your area to see if someone has already compiled the most festive places in your hometown.
With all the joy our neighbors bring to our evenings with their stunning outdoor displays, let's add our own to the mix. Scroll through our dazzling picks to illuminate your home with plenty of Christmas cheer.
Create a winter wonderland with icicle lights that mimic the look of falling snow. The durable, waterproof design will hold up through winter's rain and snow. Hang the lights from your rooftop or in your trees for a completely enchanting aesthetic.
Hang these glowing orbs in branches or on your porch for a lovely ambiance. To create your own one-of-a-kind decoration, fill the hollow center with greenery or ornaments. When it's time to pack away your holiday decor, each frame folds flat for easy storage.
Snow. Snow. Snow. Snow. (Y'all are singing this in four-part White Christmas harmony with me, right?) These strands of snowflakes and icicles bring a sparkling effect to your porch or windows. The long-lasting LED lights feature 20 drops of dome lights and snowflake-shaped lights and help save energy, using up to 80 percent less energy than traditional incandescent bulbs. Connect up to 43 total sets together for an easy holiday light decoration.
Start your holiday design at the beginning of your driveway. Don your mailbox with a festive swag that begins the merrymaking as soon as guests arrive. The faux pine and pinecone and holly decoration is pre-lit with warm LED lights for a jolly glow.
Embrace nature with these rattan vine spheres. The versatile decoration adds rustic charm to your flower beds, under a tree, on your porch, along stairs or placed in planters with greenery. Each sphere is interwoven with fairy lights for beautiful radiance.
If you love filling your yard with delightful creatures and blow-up decorations, we say, "Go for it!" If you're on the more minimal side, but your kids keep begging you for fun decorations, then try this adorable penguin. He glitters with twinkle lights and brings a note of whimsy to your outdoor decor.
