Is there anything I can do with outdoor Christmas lighting during the rest of the year?
Outdoor Christmas lighting looks so festive and welcoming during the holidays. It is a shame to keep those colorful lights from shining for most of the year. Why not consider some of these ideas for having fun with outdoor Christmas lights all year long?
- Buy red, purple and pink Christmas lights. After you take them down in January, create a big heart shaped light wreath with them. Plug it in on February 1st and let it shine through the Valentine's Day weekend.
- Decorate the trees and bushes with pastel and white lights during the Easter month. If you really want to create a fun effect, consider looking for wire topiary frames that have Easter or spring themes and wrapping them with lights. Combine a bunny shape with a basket or wheelbarrow to create your own lighted Easter display.
- Put someone's name up in lights on his or her special day by using Christmas lighting to spell out a happy birthday message during his or her birthday week. You may also want to spell out other messages with your lights such as graduation congratulations.
