It’s easy to deck out your entire house with lights that help bring cheer to any room. Reliable yet cheap Christmas lights are a great way to welcome guests or make things brighter and create more memories during the holidays.
Holiday lights are no longer limited to the traditional shapes and colors, so you can create amazing displays inside or outside. You can now also buy projectors that will decorate the side of your house with an animated display! Check out these top Christmas light ideas for homes, and browse for more outdoor Christmas lighting ideas to make your home stand out this holiday season.
Eco-Multi Solar Christmas Lights
Solar-powered Christmas lights are good for your electric bill and good for the planet. They work the same as traditional Christmas lights, but with a small solar panel attached instead of a traditional electrical plug. Solar-powered string lights are an eco-friendly alternative to standard electric lights. They power up by the sun and then run on their own without you having to mess with them.
They don’t draw from the power grid, which means you save fossil fuels. Solar lights also give you added flexibility, as you can put them far from your home without running an extension cable across the yard or having to worry about replacing batteries.
They’re especially good for families who have long driveways and want to make their residences more visible from the road. A strand or two placed on a tree at the bottom of your driveway can help make your home much more visible to arriving holiday guests.
Touch of Eco multi-color solar lights is cleverly engineered to automatically turn on when it gets dark outside. They’re weather-resistant and safe for outdoor use, so they can go anywhere you want to add holiday shine. For maximum effect, get a multi-pack of the 20’ strands so you can impress the whole neighborhood! They are available in 1, 2, or 4 packs
Solar Powered Snowflake Christmas Lights
It’s common to see strands of lights shaped into Santa Claus, reindeer, or other traditional holiday figures. For a slightly more romantic touch, look for lights that are arranged in more magical, abstract shapes. Snowflake shapes are a great way to add charm to a light display without overwhelming it with color.
The hanging snowflake lights from Touch of Eco are solar-powered, so you can hang them from trees or a roof without having to worry about an extension cable. Their light strands are thin yet durable, so they give the illusion of really hanging in midair without the risk of breaking.
Since they glow so brightly, try hanging them on your porch to create a welcoming atmosphere for your guests. You could even leave them up year-round since they’re not as clearly snowflake-shaped or Christmas-themed as many similar products. They come in packs of 1, 2, or 3.
Ribbons and More
You can easily spruce up your existing Christmas lights with wired ribbons, which can be easily shaped into bows. Use ribbons for accents at the end of cables, especially on indoor lighting.
Be careful not to leave glass bulbs in contact with fabric or plastic, as the heat from the bulbs can cause these decorations to catch fire or melt. Bulbs that are encased in plastic should be safe. You can also tie small ribbons a safe distance between each bulb.
There are 24 wired ribbons in a pack, and they are also fantastic for making gifts look extra special.
Christmas Lights Laser Projectors
There are several different types of outdoor projectors available, but laser projectors are the easiest to use. Their simple light shows can enhance any display, whether you’re using traditional light strands or more modern wireframe shapes.
The single easiest option on the market is the Touch of Eco solar-powered laser projector. This projector can be put literally anywhere in your yard that gets sunshine during the day and turns on automatically at night. It sends a blizzard of pinpoint lights over your house or any other surface you point it at. The resulting array of lights is simple but surprisingly elegant and romantic.
Standing Out from the Crowd
The best way to be memorable is to be unique. While there’s a lot to be said for simple, classic displays, the best Christmas lighting decorating ideas are colorful and use whatever designs your family likes best.
Put a fresh twist on classic themes by using flashing or moving lights, like laser projectors or blinking light strands. Using solar-powered lights in unexpected places can also be memorable for your family and guests. No matter what kind of home you have, you can make it special for the holidays without breaking the bank.
