Outdoor lighted Christmas tree silhouette
You might not really like the idea of a classic pre-lit outdoor Christmas tree and wish to opt for a more modern approach. This can easily be done if you select an outdoor lighted silhouette. If this idea is of any interest to you, I suggest the use of a zig-zag outdoor Christmas tree; which fits with the end of year holidays with perfection.
This type of outdoor lighted Christmas decorations is mostly made out of large and small rope motives with lights forming the silhouette.Once lit it looks like a tree but with a special effect. This can provide your yard with a very seductive appearance.
There is a wide range of shapes to choose from: Santa Claus, Santa and reindeer, angels, mistletoe, snowflakes, snowman, etc.
The tree is the most popular symbol of this very special and cheerful period of the year. Therefore, the first outdoor decorating item you owe your home to showcase is of course a tree! What about an unusual one?
Rope Christmas lights for outdoor decorating
Garlands are another type of highly popular outdoor lighted Christmas decorations.
There is a huge variety of Christmas lights and garland to use as outdoor ornaments for you to choose from. Those range from net lights, rope lights, LED lights, mini lights, and lights with different designs such as snowflakes and stars.
The hardest part might be to make decision on which one to choose! Indeed, you will find candy cane themed ones, multicolored lights, changing color lights and more…
Outdoor artificial lit Christmas tree
If you have more inclination for classic outdoor lighted Christmas decorations, then a pre-lit tree is the first and most important decorating item that you should get. There wouldn’t be any successful yard scene without an evergreen tree on the lawn! If you have a big yard, I suggest to get a very big lighted tree.
Another option that would work wonders on a very wide front yard is spreading several small pre-lit ones. Well, when it comes to decorating for the holidays, you can do as extravagant as you wis. People will always be agreeably surprised while passing by your home.
If you don’t have too much outdoor space, a nice small pre-lit tree will also look gorgeous placed on the porch. You won’t have to regret not seeing a big one in the center of the garden.
Tip for a beautiful display: place plants and flowers around the tree and decorate it with a bunch of colored lights if you don’t have a pre-lit outdoor Christmas tree on hand.
Pre-lit characters make stunning outdoor Christmas decorations
Christmas light displays including Santa on his sleigh as well as his reindeer are the most popular holiday decorations for outdoor use ever. As a matter of fact, there’s no successful decoration scene without Santa and his fantastic reindeer; which became, through the decades, the most popular and classic lighted ornaments for the yard.
Other characters available are:
- Mr & Mrs Santa,
- The ever classic snowmen,
- A stack of gifts,
- Christmas train,
- Nutcracker characters,
- and more.
The beauty of these Christmas ornaments is that you can place them wherever you want: whether on the front yard for the pleasure of your entire neighborhood who will enjoy to take a look at your lovely outdoor decor or in the backyard, for the sole pleasure of your family.
Christmas outdoor lighted garlands
When it comes to exterior Christmas lights, you can’t do without the traditional evergreen pre-lit garlands. Luckily, today, traditional garlands are available in a pre-lit version and can be used both indoor and outdoor.
There are several different types of lighted garlands: with twinkling lights, static lights, monochrome lights, multicolored lights and most also come in various forms: evergreen branches, pearls, bulbs, and so on. Their sizes are generally between 6″ and 18″ in height.
Pre-lit green garlands will produce a wonderful effect on your home as they have a light traditional aspect that fits both the modern times as well as the traditional seasonal atmosphere to perfection.
Lighted Nativity scene for outdoor use

The holiday is also the celebration of the Nativity and, therefore, is should be one of the of the most important symbols you’re going to want to place on the yard.
There are many lighted Nativity sets available on the market and if you wish to highlight the religious side of the celebrations, you’ll want to get an outdoor lighted Nativity scene.
Lit outdoor Nativity sets generally include the overall decor, motives, and silhouettes and you just need to find the best area in your yard to showcase your brand new arrangement. Christmas celebrates the birth of Jesus. How could you do without having a Nativity Scene on your yard?
Decorations for walkway and patway
Pre-lit walkway Christmas trees are another type of outside decorations that people generally really enjoy seeing on a front yard. They feature the opening of the way to the house. Close to the red carpet. Christmas walkway trees are generally small trees and come in pair. They are for sure the cutest outdoor ornaments you can choose adding to your holiday decor.
Place one of those trees on each side of your walkway from the main street to the front door or on your porch so that those exquisite Christmas lighted decorations welcome anyone who’s on a visit at your home. Just decorate them using classic tree ornaments.
You can also mark your walkway with snowmen or candles. Some of these ornaments are powered by solar energy.
Winter scenes make ideal Christmas outdoor displays
The holiday season falls in the end of the year and in many places around the world, that time of the year means: cold weather and snow. For this reason you may want to choose a wintertime display only. Lighted snowflakes are wonderful winter and Christmas symbols and come in sizes ranging from 5 to 20 inches. There’s a large variety supplied by stores for you to choose from. They range from colored snowflakes, twinkling lights, etc.
Decoration tip: buy 10 (5 inches) pieces snowflakes and place them on your lighted tree. An excellent alternative to the snowflake ornaments are stars, groups of carolers, angels or even merry Christmas signs.
Such displays are also ideal for those living in Southern climates. If you don’t see a single natural snowflake in a year, then opt for a snowflake decor on the yard. You can do so very easily by hanging a string of lighted snowflakes from the roof. This will enable you to profit from the warm temperatures while having a wonderful winter sight.
Inflatable Christmas yard ornaments
Decorate your front yard like a pro. Decorating the yard with inflatable Christmas silhouettes has become trendy these last years and you will probably want to make use of some inflatable outdoor lighted christmas decorations on the yard.
Inflatable Christmas decorations come in many different models such as inflatable Santa Claus alone or flying with his airplane, riding his sleigh, in his workshop. Others may feature sleigh and reindeer, colorful gifts, gigantic candy canes, snowmen and many more.
Some inflatable Christmas outdoor ornaments are lighted, some aren’t. The one I like very much includes Santa and his reindeer riding the sleigh… It’s a perfect ornament for the front yard, especially if you live in an area where snow rhymes with end of year holiday season.
