Decorating your garden
Create your own winter wonderland
Light up your garden. Stay traditional by decorating outdoor trees with bright lights, or show your jovial spirit by adding a few Christmas inflatables and lit decorations to your Christmas scene. Want to go all out? Introduce projectors and lasers to illuminate paths and project Christmassy shapes.
Decorating your house exterior
Extravagant or understated, you choose
Feel like being bold? Attach lit Christmas figures and signs to your outside wall to add some fun and colour. Combine with lights hanging from your roof, windows and doors for a stand-out, neighbour-stopping effect. Or keep it simple with gorgeous garlands and a traditional wreath instead.

How to power outdoor Christmas lights
Battery powered lights are the easiest to power outdoors as you don't have to worry about reaching sockets. For mains powered, you will need to plug them inside or in a weatherproof outdoor socket. If you need to use a socket inside, cables should be able to go through windows and doors easily, and be thin enough that these can be closed after. And extension leads will help you to place the decorations and lights wherever you want.
How to put up outdoor Christmas lights
For securing lights in high areas, you will need a ladder. Make sure you have another person with you when doing this so they can hold the ladder steady if necessary. To fix your lights or decorations to your house, fittings will need to be purchased separately. We recommend suction hooks for windows, cup hooks for walls and specialist gutter hooks for gutters.
