This Outdoor-ChristmasTree1 is easy to make in less than one hour. These lighted Outdoor decorations can be duplicated to fill in any themed area. I use them in my winter scene, make them out of white fabric and put blue as well as white lights underneath.
These Christmas yard decorations have great versatility. They can be made for any color fabric and that fabric color brightened by adding the same color light or white lights can be added for a more subtle color.
The parts are readily available in any local hardware store which makes them easy to replace should any piece break. They go up quickly and fold down flat for easy storage.
The electrical connections can be hide under the costume to help protect them from water and the winter elements.
