Twinkle lights have been voted as the most favorite Christmas decoration of the season. These festive lights are a staple to holiday décor, but there is definitely more than one way to decorate with them!

1. Wrap Up Tree Trunks

 

Most people think when decorating a tree with twinkle lights, you need to drape the lights over the branches. Well, just wrapping the trunks in lights looks just as good! If you are in a warmer climate and have palm trees, this is a look that can actually pass all year round!

2. Use Incandescent Lights

 

It’s Christmas after all, and that means you should definitely have a real pine tree set up and decorated. The only trick to getting the most out of your real tree is to decorate it with incandescent lights. These lights come in a variety of sizes and colors, and they also warm up the branches, releasing the scent of pine into the room.

3. Winter Wonderland Windows

 

If you have a large window on the main floor of your home, light up the border of the window in lights. On the inside, make a winter wonderland display with little light up Christmas village houses. Get creative and use all kinds of decorations and lights to make your village come to life. Baytree Interiors have a nice selection of decorations that you can use to make your village stand out and look like a Santa’s workshop window display!

4. Create a Winter Fence

 

Make your fence, or hedge light up by wrapping it up in string lights to accentuate the curves, and create a lined walkway. Making the walkway light up will create a welcoming look for friends, family, and other guests coming over for the holidays.

5. Red Berry Garland

 

I personally never liked red lights but this idea is ingenious! To create some extra holiday sparkle, just wrap an evergreen garland with red lights to create a red berry garland. Your garland dotted with red “berries” made of Christmas lights is a new and interesting way to use twinkle lights.

6. Get Crafty with Tomato Cages

 

Using tomato cages to create your own light-up outdoor Christmas trees is a fun and easy project just about anyone can do. Tie the top of the tomato cage together to create a triangular shape and wrap up the whole cage with twinkle lights. Set it up outside and flick on the switch!

7. Make Your Own Glowing Gift Boxes

 

Great your own gift boxes using thin cardboard and wrap each one of with nice colorful ribbons. Place some lights inside the box and get ready to see some big presents lit up in the snow!
