We are a couple of months away from the 2015 Christmas festive season, and you may have not gotten amazing ideas to decorate your compound. Oftentimes you run loss of fascinating ideas because you end up thinking too much. However, landscape Christmas lights are important in expressing other exterior decorations, or rather used to far more ornate the yard. They can also be used to distinguish your house from the neighborhood.
Consider putting something on the landscaping
Instead of focusing on the front yard tree, consider using all the landscaping options available, though make sure that you stand out from other homes. For instance, set up landscape Christmas lights at interval length crawling and hanging at safe points. Place a Santa holding some of the lights inscribing words such as merry Xmas. Another spot for decoration is on the shrubs along the garage driveway and sidewalk. Try moving Christmas lights that change color and patterns, making a spectacular effect at front house.
Use Flood Lights
Use energy-saver bulbs in place in the flood lights to add a different lighting color to the landscape. Choose whichever color that blends in well with the outdoor Christmas lights giving a magnificent lighting impression. If getting up a Santa can be a daunting task, purchase a projector to display different photos of Santa while performing his duties.
Clean the Windows
Since there will a lot of lighting around the house, it is wise to wash the windows as the moving Christmas lights can reveal how your windows look like. Also, the Christmas lights suspended near the windows will show off the interior rooms. It is possible to fit the lights at strategic position to avoid revealing the house interior if you mind. Always close the curtains to keep of the public.
Another cute and simple outdoor Christmas lights and decoration idea is column candy-canes, which many find it effective. If your house has a porch with white columns, then you only need to clean them and decorate them with red lights to form a candy cane. Alternatively, you can use white Christmas lights on a red column.
If you cannot obey electricity kindly call in an electrician to assist in setting up your outdoor Christmas lights. Make sure to cover all naked spots on the conductor and install a switch for turning on and off. Since the house will be running on numerous bulbs, it is best advised to buy energy-efficient ones to save on energy bills. Also, do not leave the lights on all night always switch after a couple of hours after the peak hour.
