Outdoor Christmas Decorations Ideas

Sharing is caring!

It is getting a little chilly, so that means it’s time to start setting up the outdoor Christmas decorations. It is fun to include my DIY flamingos with snow boots displayed in front of our tropical plants.

Since we live in Florida, we never have a white Christmas, but that does not have to put a damper on my Christmas decorating.

To make it fun, I used a few new techy gadgets for displaying Christmas lights. But, of course, I used some of my older decorations as well. At Christmas time, I love all the memories my older decorations evoke.  

Yard Decorations

These adorable flamingos were a gift from my sister.  My sister wanted a pattern for them since she does not have a pair. Therefore I will make her a couple of flamingos, and then I will be sharing how to make some soon.

Wreaths and Greenery

My tiny studio has flower window boxes, and they are perfect for Outdoor Christmas decorations. First, add greenery; both faux and fresh will work, then add berries, pinecones, Christmas bulbs, an outdoor candle, lights, and a bow.

No front door would be complete without a Christmas wreath. So why not make your wreath and bow for Christmas? I like to create a new bow every year to coordinate with my other decorations.

My addition of techy gadgets for displaying Christmas lights has made the process so much fun. However, I am still learning how to use these new “toys.”

These lights were easy to hang from the rain gutter. I installed new string lights that are icicles with snowflakes also from the rain gutter. It is the only snow we are going to have this Christmas.

The window flower box needed a small string of lights and an outdoor candle with a timer.

Porch Decorations

Adding Outdoor Christmas decorations to your porches adds some Christmas cheer for both your family and neighbors. You can create an outdoor room decorated for Christmas. If your patio protects the elements, you can use a vast array of items to decorate. 

My DIY lanterns are not completely weather-proof, but they work wonderfully for decorating our porch. I added candles made from a tree branch that I drilled out a space to insert battery-operated tea lights and a mini boxwood wreath with a red bow.

I love all of these but the window box may be my favorite. Enjoy your techy lights.

You do a great job of making up for no snow in Florida during the Christmas season! All the lights (I especially love the tree of strings lights!) and all the decor are so festive! Happy decorating 😊
