These Outdoor Christmas Tree Lights Are Merry and Bright
There are so many things to be excited about this holiday seaosn: spending time with family, jolly Christmas desserts, Ree Drummond's upcoming Christmas movie on Food Network (woohoo!), and decking your halls. While you're dressing up your Christmas tree and fireplace, don't forget that the outside of your house needs some cheer, too. The best outdoor Christmas tree lights can make your home a stand-out from the neighborhood!
Options for waterproof outdoor lights used to be pretty limited, but now you can get the same fun effects you'd find with indoor lights (like cool colors and weird shapes) for your outdoor trees and home exterior, too. Whether you're more into a vintage look with big colorful bulbs, or something more subtle like tiny fairy lights, you'll be able to find an option that can still sparkles even when the weather outside is frightful. When you're searching for the right lights, take note of how many feet of string you need and what color that string should be (for example, if it's going on a tree, green blends in best). Also look at the bulbs: LEDs shine bright and are energy efficient. Finally, decide how do you want to control the lights. Some use an app or a smart-home device, while some are simple battery-operated strands. Either way, you'll want to know how to hang Christmas lights safely.
Scroll through to see the best of every kind of light, all of which can make your days ahead merry and bright.
