Simple Outdoor Christmas Decorating Ideas for a Magical HolidaySimple Outdoor Christmas Decorating Ideas

Christmas time is the most luminous seasons of the year! It’s the time when our homes become shiny and bright with globes, tinsel, and lights galore. While some decorations are universal and never fade away, it’s always fun to refresh your collection with a few trendy items. Plan a magical December display with some of these simple outdoor Christmas decorating ideas.

Lit Baskets

Get the kids involved in gathering pine cones and filling some baskets. You can find plenty this time of year, or purchase them from a local store. Interlace the pine cones and a garland of string lights. Place them near your fireplace or on the steps or tables on your front porch.

Lights of All Shapes

One of the Christmas trends for 2018 is adding a modern touch to the front lawn decor by using geometric-shaped lights. Geometric Christmas lights are available in different shapes and colors which gives you plenty of options. Choose the shapes you like to go with your style and personality and make your home inviting.


Move over red and green. Pastel color schemes are expected to be a big hit this year. So, when decorating that potted Christmas tree on the front porch this year, you might want to consider pastels like pink, fuchsia, blue, green, and white for a bit of glam.

Creative Outdoor Christmas Trees

Simple outdoor Christmas ideas are as easy as 1-2-3 using tomato cages. Wrap them in LED lights using your favorite colors and place it anywhere you want.


A simple way to decorate your home for Christmas is with paper luminaries. Line them up along your front walkway, alongside the edge of your driveway, or scatter them on your porch for a bright, twinkling Christmas display. Buy premade luminaries online or make it a fun activity for the whole family and make the luminaries together.
