Can Christmas decorations be stylish and whimsical at the same time? Of course they can! Take inspiration from these unique and eye-catching festive light settings, with products you can repurpose year after year. We’ll take you through show-stopping options for your front yard, festive alfresco dining ideas and a backyard fairyland straight out of your childhood Christmas dreams.
Your front yard is going to get the most attention, so why not pull out all the stops? Create a visual story with clever light placement and illuminating statues. For a traditional-themed scene, start styling with reindeer, stars and a bright wreath.
For a fuller display, use icicle lights. String them along the roof of a verandah or pergola to create an enchanted setting.
Position solar lights to catch the sun during the day. These outdoor colour-changing LED reindeer are installed outside the porch cover to receive maximum daylight.
Light up the kids’ Christmas spirit by surprising them with a festive fairyland at the bottom of the garden. Add gingerbread-house charm to a simple cubby and bring in Yuletide props to get them dreaming of Christmas morning. Solar novelty lights like these illuminated Christmas trees and toadstools will add to the enchanted look and feel. We turned timber offcuts into fantasy signs – a great low-effort, high-impact D.I.Y. decoration.
Get creative! Artfully draped net lights fastened to a hedge with cable ties make a cool 2D Christmas tree.
A waterfall of lights creates atmosphere at a drinks party or Christmas buffet. Style your dining table with coloured glassware, extra baubles and foliage to enhance the mood.
Don’t forget to sit back and enjoy what you’ve created! Take a quiet time-out from all the hustle and bustle to enjoy your festive scenery in a comfy lounge nook.
Make sure any lighting used outside is suitable for the outdoors. Any hard-wired electrical fixtures must be installed by a licensed electrician. Our cubby was set up for photographic purposes only. When assembling and positioning your cubby, carefully follow the safety instructions provided by the manufacturer. Note: paint colours may vary on application.
