Outdoor Christmas lighting ideas
Bring the outdoors to life on cool dark evenings and light up your festive season with a twinkling display that shows off your creativity.
Shimmering lights in the garden are a lovely way to welcome you home on wintry evenings in the run up to Christmas. A twinkling wreath on the door or lit-up tree will be loved by visitors and passers-by alike. And if you really want to create a magical display, introduce some festive friends to the family; a silhouetted reindeer or two will light up the garden and bring real charm to the neighbours at Christmas. We have lots of ideas to light up your imagination, and the season, this winter.
A festive welcome
A festive wreath is the perfect way to decorate the front of the house. Try brightening up a simple design by weaving battery powered lights among the foliage; a sparkling wreath is really welcoming and the neighbours will enjoy looking at it too.
Light up paths, driveways and gates with festive cheer thanks to carefully placed lights in shades of white or festive colours. Think about injecting an added touch of magic with light in the shape of wintry characters or faux trees.
Winter al fresco
The outdoors needn’t be out-of-bounds in winter. Light up your seating area by weaving twinkling lights through seats, around the summer house or shed to create a cosy spot for a warm, al fresco, festive tipple.
Charm and inspire guests, neighbours and passers-by with a festive display featuring friendly reindeers, cute snowmen and other sparkling friends in the garden.
Bring sparkle to bare winter branches with pretty fairy lights. Dot the lights in a random pattern, wrap or weave them around the branches. Experiment until you get just the effect you’re looking for.
A garden wonderland
Create your very own winter wonderland by lighting up your favourite garden ornaments and furniture. Try introducing some festive friends such as reindeers or snowmen for the complete festive look.
