When decorating your yard for the holiday season or looking for outdoor Christmas decor ideas, work with what you have. Look around your yard and the exterior of your home for existing elements that you can work into your Christmas decor displays.
If you have a good view of your back yard through the windows of your home, its lovely to carry your holiday season decorations into the back yard as well – creates a nice visual focal point for you and your holiday season guests to enjoy.
Here, a bird bath that is normally a feature of the summer landscape is transformed into a beautiful Christmas display in winter by first creating a bed of evergreen branches in the basin, and then nestling shiny colored glass Christmas ball ornaments into the nest of evergreen branches. Note that ball ornaments of varying sizes are used to create an additional element of visual interest, but of course, if all you have is ball ornaments of only one size, that works too. A super-large ornament ball completes the look like a topper on a cake.
A really beautiful and festive Christmas display to decorate either your front or back yard.
