How to make your
Front Yard sparkle with Outdoor Holiday Decor
November 27th, 2005
One of the popular trends today,
is to decorate your front yard and your house for the holidays. It
has gone beyond just the lights on the roof gable, but now it
extends to lighted figures, air filled snowmen, and giant candy
If your taste has to be more
conservative, Pottery Barn will have the décor to fit with
traditional wreaths, and topiary. You can find winter wonderland
bird nests online.
Hanging icicle lights are easy
to install. They are light weight and look dramatic. They dangle down
in an icicle pattern; you can get them in white, multi-color, purple,
orange, green, and red. The color lights usually cost quite a bit
more. These lights are relatively inexpensive to buy compared to
LED rope light.
If you don’t like the chore of
untangling wires each year, you might think about the rope lights.
They don’t come cheap though, a 153 ft of Red, Green, or yellow are
priced from $429.00 up to $500.00. If you want a Blue rope light, 150
ft will cost $1,479.00 and the white rope lights will cost
$1,662.00. They are made with LED, a light emitting diode,
which cost less
to run and does not heat up. You could use this year-round to
decorate your yard.
Of the Snowmen, there are fiber
optic 18” child snowmen stating at $49. You can get a complete
family with a 26" Fiber Optic Snowman Mother or father for around
$109. The largest one we saw was a 54" Fiber Optic Plush Snowman
selling for $480.00.
If assembling your own outdoor
Décor is too intimidating, you can get figures of different holiday
designs. A 60" Holographic Nutcracker, 250 Multicolored Lamp sells
for $81.95. These figures can be a relatively affordable method to
decorate the lawn compared to the fiber optics. You can get giant
sized figures like a 9' Nutcracker With Musket for $338.95. You an
get a complete Santa, Sleigh, Reindeer set for $389.00.
