Decorating for the holidays is a popular tradition among many families. Light strands are used both indoors and outdoors to create festive holiday scenes. This holiday season, Go Green LED Bulbs suggests that households use energy efficient LED Holiday Lights, that require less energy to operate than their traditional incandescent counterparts. An entire strand of LED holiday lights uses about five watts of energy, whereas traditional holiday lights use about five watts per bulb. Go Green LED Bulbs is offering decorating tips on several ways to decorate with these LED lights for both indoor and outdoor displays.
For those living in an urban setting, it is sometimes difficult to decorate the exterior of an apartment or yard with holiday decorations. Decorating the window planters that sit on the outsides of windows will add some exterior holiday decoration. Add red or green holiday lights, or both, to the plants in the window planter, or simply set them on it, securing it to the planter. If window planters are absent from a window, one can hang icicle lights on the inside of the top of all the windows in the home to give it an elegant glow that can be seen from outdoors. This can also be done to houses that do not have trees in the yard.
Wrapping white LED holiday lights around spheres of grapevine, which can be purchased at most craft stores, makes an easy-to-assemble holiday decoration. Different sized spheres can be purchased and placed in the yard near trees or on doorsteps and porches. These decorations can also be used indoors, allowing them to bring an outdoor feel inside. Another indoor or outdoor decoration is glowing “gift boxes”. To make, purchase frosted or semi-sheer boxes and add ribbon and bows to the tops and sides of them. Then place piles of white or colored holiday lights underneath the boxes to allow them to glow. Using different sized boxes and different colored lights makes for a festive holiday decoration.
To decorate a fireplace mantel, set up two or three mini conifers across the mantel. Then weave real or fake evergreen garland in between the mini trees and along the entire mantel. Place a strand of white LED Christmas Lights to the garland for some sparkle. Finish with fake, sparkled pomegranates, or red candles to add a touch of color to the display. Another decoration that can be placed on a fireplace mantel is garland, real or fake, adorned with red LED Christmas Lights, clustering them every four or five bulbs to create the illusion of red berries. This embellishment can also be placed over a doorway, both indoors and outdoors, or on top of cabinets.
For homes that have a beautiful front porch, hanging plant potters can be dangled from the porch ceiling. On top of the planter can rest Christmas greenery. On top of that, place a frosted, round bowl upside-down with LED holiday lights bunched up underneath. To frost the bowls, paint them with one layer of cream colored paint, or purchase already frosted bowls. Add white felt snowflakes to the outside of the bowl. For households that do not have a porch and only have a doorstep, small, planted Christmas trees can reside on the sides of the doorstep. Attach LED Christmas Lights to the trees, then top them off with other outdoor plants such as gourds, poinsettias, dyed eucalyptus, and pinecone garland for a beautiful and welcoming doorway decoration. For a vintage-looking yard decoration, dig out an old bicycle and drape old-fashioned-looking C7 Multi-Color LED Christmas Lights across the entire bike. Place the bicycle against a fence, tree, or side of the house.
For homes that are set in between a forest, or a large amount of trees, “shooting stars” can be place between trees. One must first purchase light up stars and attach to various trees in the yard. From the star should drape several strands of white LED holiday lights that attach to another tree nearby. Several shooting stars can connect trees throughout the yard for a fun holiday decoration.
