Festive Lights Add Sparkle to Outdoors

patioBrighten Outdoor Spaces Using Festive Patio Lights

Opportunities abound when considering festive patio lights for use on your private patio.  One fun idea is to hang window boxes on a deck railing aglow with patio lights.  Make sure to purchase appropriate size window boxes to cover an evenly spaced portion of the deck railing.  A good rule to follow is to cover about a third of the available space.  Too few window boxes will make the patio lights seem cheap and understated while too much decoration will overwhelm the viewer with too many patio lights.  First, plant the window box with any of your favorite greenery.  One example is fragrant rosemary trees.  Next, hang the planted window box on the deck railing.  Then, cut garden stakes the height of the plants and insert them into the soil.  The stakes will support the patio lights but will be hidden by the plants.  Lastly, wrap mini string patio lights through the stakes and around the plants.  The number of patio lights needed depends on whether a subtle delicate decoration is desired or a bright fiery bold display is most wanted.  Patio lights can transform and outdoor living space from a cold wintry area into a warm inviting radiant atmosphere.  When springtime comes, pretty flowers can replace the patio lights in the window boxes for a warmer and more colorful display.  Decorate your patio or deck this holiday using bright and cheerful patio lights in versatile window boxes. 

 

Radiant Wreath Lights To Add Charm To Private Spaces

Hanging a wreath chandelier illuminated with wreath lights will create a festive decorative touch to any outdoor living space.  Hang the horizontal evergreen wreath decorated with wreath lights upside down.  The first step is to purchase an artificial evergreen Christmas wreath with battery-operated wreath lights and timer already attached.  Pre-lit battery-operated Christmas wreaths with timers attached eliminate unsightly cords and provide the convenience of not having to regularly turn on wreath lights.  Next, measure the diameter of the wire frame on the back of the wreath.  On the porch ceiling where the wreath lights are needed for illumination, attach five cup hooks in a circle matching the size of the wreath.  Hang the wreath from the cup hooks and decorate with Christmas ornaments around the wreath lights.  A chandelier made out of wreath lights can be a fun and symbolic way to decorate during the holidays.  The circular shape of the wreath symbolizes God’s eternity and unity.  Evergreens symbolize the persistence of life during the long winter months.  After the holidays are over, the ornaments can be taken off and the wreath with wreath lights can remain as a decorative illumination on the porch during the winter months as a reminder of the persistence of life.

 

Create A Wintry Scene By Applying Snowflake Lighting To Outdoor Objects

Snowflakes, as a symbol of the winter season, make a fun and joyful shape to novelty string lighting.  Snowflake lighting can easily transform outdoor shrubbery and evergreen trees into cheerful decorations.  A search through stores or over the internet will yield various snowflake lighting shapes and sizes from many manufacturers.  Large snowflake lighting looks particularly lovely on large evergreen trees that will be viewed from a distance.  Smaller snowflake lighting can be used on smaller displays appropriate for closer-range viewing, for instance, topiary trees placed near an entrance to the home.  The serenity, peace, and tranquility of snowflake lighting make a perfect welcoming symbol.  Be sure to decorate with many strings of snowflake lighting this holiday season to warmly welcome guests to the calm, peaceful beauty of your home.

Christmas Decorations to Shine This Holiday Season

Shimmering Ornament Selections from Kmart

Kmart is starting very early this season.  Now a part of the Sears family of stores, Kmart is already flooding the web with its pre-season holiday decorating ideas.  This year the ornament collection is chock full of things that shimmer and shine.  Bits of silver and black, and even a little bit of gold make up the most substantial percentage of the ornament collection.  Large finials are a relatively new item for the mass merchant.  These finials come in at a price that’s much higher than what we usually expect at Kmart.  It looks like Kmart is going after the upscale buyer who wants to save money over the usual Christmas boutique stores and still get an impressive, eye-popping ornament.  These finials are offered in a variety of sizes from 23″ to 42″ and unlike many specialty store ornaments are shatter-proof.  They may be shatter-proof, but they’re certainly not cheap.  Look for these finials to be priced from $39-$99.  Those with plenty to spend may opt to cover a large tree with them.  For the rest of us, we’ll opt for just one to hang from the ceiling or to place in a coveted position on an ornament stand.  Yet another option is to give one as a gift that your loved one can display for years to come.
