THIS YEAR WHY NOT LET THE FESTIVE CHEER SPREAD OUTSIDE AND DECORATE YOUR GARDEN OR DECKING? GARDENS ARE OFTEN UNFORTUNATELY NEGLECTED DURING THE WINTER MONTHS BUT A LITTLE CREATIVE CHRISTMAS MAGIC WILL ENSURE THAT IT CAN BE ENJOYED ALL YEAR ROUND!
This year why not let the festive cheer spread outside and decorate your garden or decking? Gardens are often unfortunately neglected during the winter months but a little creative Christmas magic will ensure that it can be enjoyed all year round!
Turning your garden into a winter wonderland is easier than ever, we’ve compiled a list of the charming Christmas garden decorations that you simply can’t be without this season. Icicle LED lights
The chances of snow is seemingly low this year, so we advise stringing up a set of icicle lights to add a bit of frosty festiveness to your outdoor space. They look fantastic draped over any trellises or awning you may have. Alternatively, they can be wrapped around any small trees or along the balcony of your decking.
Light up figures
From Santa Clause and his sleigh to penguins and polar bears, light up figures look lovely in any sized garden. If you’re looking for something a little cooler and contemporary then we suggest rattan-covered reindeer. These pre-lit ornaments are refreshingly rustic.
Garden Stake Lights
These are available with a variety of toppers, from simple stars to bulbs that boast traditional Christmas colours like red and green. Place these along well-travelled walkways for guests to enjoy or to ensure that Father Christmas has a little extra guidance when finding your house!
Christmas Garden GnomeIs a Christmas garden really complete without a garden gnome? Make sure he’s decked out appropriately with a Santa hat and a pile of presents. If garden work has to be done in less favorable weather conditions then his merry face will be sure to cheer you up!
