Just as dressing well is significant to one’s personality, decorating the exterior of the house is as important as maintaining the interiors. In fact, yards form, what we call in laymen terms, the “first impression” of the house and of the people receding in them. One of the main reasons people avoid outdoor decorations is because of the time and effort that have to be invested into it.
Here are a few ideas of decorating your yard without having to put in much effort or time and your yard will, indeed, feel like Christmas.
Let’s start with something extremely effortless, shall we? All you need are Fairy lights. They go everywhere and with everything. You don’t even have to buy them, just use the ones you used for Christmas. Hang them on your plants, wrap them around tree trunks or the ropes of the swing hanging from the tree, hook them to your fences, make a tent out of fairy lights above your garden, go crazy, have fun and let them do their magic!
Getting creative with string bulbs
If you wish the get a little more creative and have some money to spare, then you can fit the light bulbs into mason jars, cupcake liners, paper bags, plastic flowers, plastic cups, tin lanterns or bottles. They will completely change the entire look of your garden. Just make sure that the fairy lights used are LED.
If you’re into themes and want to try something authentic then you can use Chinese lanterns and throw some strings of red crape paper around to give a traditional Chinese look. Another way to go is to have Tiki torches standing form the ground in the corners of your garden or around the tree. It would be perfect if you have a barbecue pit. You may also use Turkish pendant lights for a Pacific Asian look.
Lights don’t always have to be elevated from the ground. Pathway lights are just as mystical. They can be leading people towards the house or the Gazebo in the garden, or towards a fountain. Pathway lights can also be scattered all around the garden making it seem like there are fireflies all over.
The extent of man’s laziness makes him creative in order to do the hardest things in the simplest ways. And here is an ultimate example. If you’re too lazy and don’t want to put in any time or effort at all, just spread a table cloth over the coffee table in your garden and a few pathway lamps (with artificial fire) under it.
These are just some of the many ideas that can be used to give your garden the look you’ve always wished for. Outdoor lights will get you that look and it won’t take as much time as you think it would. Go out and make your garden look pretty!
