Christmas Lights: Holiday Decor for a Screened Porch

Brought to you by Lowe's Creative Ideas

Make your screened porch a festive holiday destination with these lighting ideas. You might discover you like the look so much you want to keep the lights up year-round.

A Screened Porch with LED lights, a Decorated, Pre-Lit Wreath, Christmas Trees and Lighted Stars.

Center of Attention

A Pre-Lit Christmas Wreath with Red Ornaments Surrounded by LED String Lights.

Your screened porch likely has a good deal of wall space open to the outdoors and a wall — or in the case of this porch — windows shared with the house. A wreath and LED string lights helps turn a wall or large screened area into an accent wall. The pre-lit wreath creates a great focus point. If you can't find just the style you want, add your own ornaments to fit the rest of your decor.

String lights add a celebratory air and softly illuminate the porch. Attach strings of LED lights to the porch frame rails and posts or suspend them on a wall. If the screened area has grille work, as on this porch, you can attach parallel strings of LED lights to the grille with zip-ties.

Candle Power and Lantern Light

A Row of Battery-Operated Candles in a Window Sill.

Battery-operated candles are a simple way to cast a soft glow onto your porch without worrying about power cords or open flames. Mix sizes for interesting groupings. If your home has windows that look out onto the porch, you can arrange the candles in sills to brighten both indoors and out.


Battery-Operated Lanterns Suspended in a Row of Windows

Hanging lights add to festive air to any setting and create an additional level of light. These battery-operated indoor lanterns are suspended in the home but shine through windows to cast a flickering glow onto the porch.

Light Different Levels

A White, Lighted Snowflake.

With walls and windows lit up for the season, look for interesting ways to add lights at various levels around the porch. A pre-lit snowflake or two adds bright, white light and underscores the winter theme.


Lighted Stars Displayed on a Porch Table.

Arrange lighted stars on patio tables or plant stands.


Christmas-Themed Pathway Lights on a Porch Floor.

Compact Christmas Trees

A Pre-Lit Artificial Christmas Tree with Red Christmas Ornaments.

Don't forget the Christmas trees. If your porch doesn't have space for a full-size tree, smaller trees  like this pre-lit artificial cedar  pack a lot of holiday cheer into a small space. This one comes complete with a decorative planter. Just add ornaments to taste.

Make Everyday Items Festive

Two Bouquets of LED Lights Illuminating a Santa Figurine and Miniature Christmas Tree.

Finally, consider the everyday items on your porch. String lights turn any objects into Christmas decor. Bundles of LED lights create bouquets of brightness on a tabletop and call attention to your Christmas decorations.


A Red Plant Stand Wound with String Lights and Topped with Battery-Operated Candles.

Simple plant stands become holiday accents when you wind them with string lights. The twisting pattern adds another way to layer on the light. Top them with your favorite holiday plant or — for even more light — a trio of battery-operated candles.
