LIGHT UP YOUR OUTDOORS
One of the simplest ways to dress up any front- or backyard is with lighting. It allows you to hide the
ugly bits and highlight the best bits, and there’s always something special about Christmas lighting. Here are a few ideas.
Transform the branches of an overhanging tree by suspending Christmas lights from them.
Do the same with paper lanterns or hanging hurricane lamps with candles inside. If you are really adventurous, hang up an old chandelier – your backyard will feel like Christmas and Alice’s Wonderland combined!
Run Christmas lighting along side fences, wrap it around cabana or deck posts or drape over hooks to form candy cane shapes on walls. The kids will love to help!
