Christmas-Outdoor-Decorations are becoming a more prominent part of the season with lots of commercial shops and web sites popping up all over the place.
Lots of people make their own outside and inside decorations and then combine them with some commercial ones.
Many people will pick a theme and decorate from there. Here are some themes to choose from and then let your imagination go from there.
HANDMADE LIGHTED OUTDOOR DECORATIONS
|CREATING A RELIGIOUS THEME: Many decisions must be made on how much of a religious scene you want. Probably the best place to start would be with Joseph, Mary and Baby, then move to the Three Wisemen, Drummer boy, Shepard, and add sheep, camels, cows, birds and other animals. An enclosure can be assembled to include bales of straw, tree limbs leaning against each other to form a structure. |
Add some music and you have a scene.
|CREATING A SANTA: |
|To me the predominate images I have of Santa come from the Story "The Night Before Christmas". Santa "laying his finger aside of his nose and then up the chimney he rose" or "Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night" with Santa and his sleight silhouetted against a full white moon. I picked an inside portrait of this story with intentions of expanding to "The children all snuggled all warm in their beds" and "When from out on the lawn ... I flew from my bed.. I thru open the sash..." So I started with Santa and the fireplace then I will move to the other images.|
These handmade Christmas-Outdoor-Decorations look as good during the day as they do at night.
USING CANDLES FOR ADDITIONAL Christmas-Outdoor-Decorations:
|CREATING A WINTER THEME: Lots of snow, snowmen, snow forts, snowball fights, sleds, icicles, stocking hats, hot chocolate are memories and scenes of Winter. I made a snowDad, snowMom and 3 SnowChildren add Some bare winter lighted trees and then waited for Mother Nature to fill in the rest|
|Candles are used on tables to add some height and additional decoration. Candles can also be used as Christmas-Outdoor-Decoration to do the same thing. With the instructions given you can make a pillar or taper types of candles of any size. I use my candles to line and light the stair way up to the entrance of the inside Christmas Light display. I have made some giant pillar candles as and entrance decorations; the tallest pillars are 10 feet tall with the small ones in front about 5 feet. Most of the candles stand about 2 ½ feet tall. I made some tape candles to line the second entrance to the Light display with two of them on top of tall stone pillar as the first you see when coming down 5th Street. |
