If you are not able to or are simply just unwilling to hang Christmas lights from your roof or gutters, there are still plenty of ways that you can decorate your home and yard for Christmas.
You don’t have to get the ladder out in the cold weather and put up all the lights on your house in order to have a beautiful outdoor Christmas display that shows off your holiday spirit.
Here are 3 outdoor Christmas decorating ideas that don’t involve hanging any Christmas lights from your roof.
Outdoor Projection Laser Lights
You can still light up your house for the holidays with an outdoor light projector for Christmas. There are actually all kinds of great laser light projectors that can be used to decorate your house for Christmas.
The way that these work is that you simply plug in the light projector and then align it in your yard to shine on the area of your home or yard you want to decorate. It doesn’t take much more than plugging in the cord and then staking the projector in the ground with the attached yard stake.
There are all kinds of cool designs that you can choose from for Christmas time. There are projectors that make it look like it is snowing on your home as well as ones that project different holiday scenes or sayings.
You can even make it look like you have decorated the bushes or trees in your yard with hundreds of Christmas lights with a twinkling light laser projector.
Inflatable Christmas Decorations
Another idea for decorating your outdoor space for Christmas is to use inflatable air-blown decorations. You have most likely seen these decorations before but you may not realize just how many different ones there are to choose from.
I have seen everything from an inflatable nativity scene to Frosty the Snowman in a snow globe. You can find just about any type of inflatable that you are looking for to help make your yard look festive this Christmas.
Not everyone likes inflatable yard decorations but they are much easier than hanging lights on your home. Most inflatables simply need to be plugged in and then staked into the ground where you want them to be. You may need an extension cord for some of them if you have a large yard but most come with a long enough cord.
When it comes to turning them on, some are on timers and some of them you can simply just switch on the power when you want them to inflate. They come with an automatic fan that keeps them inflated until you turn it off.
Decorate The Inside of the Windows and Doors
If you don’t mind hanging lights but just not from your roof or out in the cold, consider hanging the lights inside of your windows and doors instead. If you have several windows in the front of your home you can easily wrap a string of Christmas lights around each window as well as your front door.
You can also add in some other decorations such as a nice, big wreath for your front door or some door garland. For the windows along with the lights you can add in a hanging snowflake or a candle light in each window as well.
If you have several windows this could easily add enough light and decorations that you wouldn’t even need to head outdoors to hang anymore lights. This works really great if you have a large bay window in the front that you can add all sorts of lights to as well.
If you have a porch you can always add a simple Christmas themed solar light as well to enhance the lights even more. The nice thing about the solar lights is that you don’t have to worry about running cords or turning them on at night.
You definitely don’t have to hang Christmas lights from your roof in order to nicely decorate your home or yard for Christmas. You can easily show your love of Christmas this year and not have to drag out the ladder or stand in freezing weather trying to get your Christmas lights just right.
