Christmas Yard Decoration Ideas and Photos

December 10, 2010

Christmas lights in a front yard.Use your garden shepherd hook to create a candy cane Christmas decoration! I had some silver tinsel like garland that I used on last year's tree and wrapped it around the shepherd hook from top to bottom. I then added a string of red Christmas lights, wrapping them around to look like the red stripes of the candy cane, adding another window decoration to hang on the hook.


I used the ziploc ties to fasten the garland and lights to keep it all in place, but you could use bread ties. It looks great and have had many comments on it. It served as a no expense decoration and recycled older decorations

I had a scarecrow at the cemetery for fall. Instead of throwing it away, I made it into a Santa Claus for the holidays. Felt, a dollar Santa hat, and hot glue. Turned out very well.

I didn't set up my Christmas tree this year, rather I added to the decorations that I bought last year, on sale at Target, to decorate my dogwood tree in the yard.

The photos were taken to show all of the Christmas theme decorations put up over the entire front yard this year. We decorate every year. Most of our yard decorations are at least ten years old.

Our church had this large chair sitting in the front of our church for a couple of months and they decided to discard it. We brought it home and put it in our front yard and I have it decorated for Christmas.
