Want the secret to having the best-lit house on the block? It’s all about getting the right mix. Here’s how:
Start with path lights. Work your way from the ground up, illuminating bushes, trees, windows, doors, and the roofline.
Pick a focal point. Deck it out with a variety of lights. String lights, a shining wreath (#267523), glimmering packages (#390998), and a friendly snowman (#477447) draw the eye to the door.
Blanket bushes. Net lights (#391377) provide consistent coverage.
Combine lights. Mix multicolor, single-color, and white lights for a balanced look.
Leave a light in the window. Hang wreaths (#195631) on windows along with flickering candles (#391395) for a subtle glow.
Play up your home’s features, such as a bay window, with icicle lights (#394532).
These glowing gift boxes wrapped with grapevine ribbons (#390998) look like magical packages left on the front steps.
Warm Up Walkways
Take advantage of shimmering path lights (#394499) and stakes (#138853) to give your Christmas scene depth.
Trim Tree Trunks
Light the trunk and branches of deciduous trees. Start at the bottom and spiral the lights around. Use single-color strands for a design wallop.
