5 Easy Ways To Decorate A Yard For Christmas

**I was sent a Star Shower Window Wonderland and a Star Shower Slide Show in exchange for an honest review. My opinions are my own. No other compensation was exchanged.**


I am all about the easy. So when it comes time to decorate the yard for Christmas, I don't want to spend hours hanging lights. Neither does my husband. So we've stopped hanging lights because, you know, life is short, and if you don't wanna, you don't have to. However, we do decorate the yard in OTHER ways.


If you're all about the easy, here are some ideas!







1. Buy ornaments on clearance and hang on a tree: 



I bought these for 50% off last year so if something happens to one, I don't worry about it. The candy cane was only .98 cents. If you don't have a tree, put the ornaments on a bush. If you don't have a bush, well, lucky you, you don't have to maintain nonsense. (I am terrible with yard stuff. I have a black thumb.)



2. Get a Star Shower Window Wonderland over at buywindowwonderland.com!




It's incredibly simple to set up. You just tape up the screen (the box comes with it, plus the tape!), plug in the projector, and pick which of the 6 movies you want to feature. This would be perfect if you live in an apartment and don't have a yard to decorate too.




A small neighborhood kid asked, "Is that really Santa in your window?" Why yes, yes it is.

(Yes, we need to trim our bushes.)



3. Pick up a Star Shower! These things were all the rage a few years ago because they make life simple. We have ours facing the tree so it looks like sparkles everywhere.





4. Purchase an inflatable!




We've had this one for years so we definitely got our money's worth. Granted, we have to remind the neighborhood kids not to touch the penguins, because they do pop out, and kids want to hug them.



5. You can get a Star Shower Slide Show at buyslideshow.comThis one comes with 12 slides, and they're not only for Christmas so you get your money's worth. It's under $40, so it's the perfect decoration.



We are so putting this out for birthdays, because yes, they have a balloon slide. It takes minutes to set up.



This Santa is from the slide and as you see, we put the Snowman projector up. He says yo. Bring treats.





How do you decorate your yard?

  2. We have the Star Shower! In fact, Cassidy bought two and last year gave one to our babysitter. She started to cry because her father had passed away a few years earlier, and he had loved Christmas lights so much. Sob..
    Anyway, I want all of this! We did finally get an inflatable, which was Des' life dream.

  6. My next door neighbor has that Star Shower and I told my husband I wanted one. I love those things. We have a few neighbors that go all out during the holidays. One has a yard full of inflatables. It's been fun watching him start out with 1 and now it's well over a dozen. It's a must visit during the holidays.

  9. This is so cool! I've seen this all over our area being displayed on homes. I love that really, that's all you need! We have lights along the top of our house, along the privacy fence, and in our shrubs.

  11. These are great ideas! I know putting up lights is such a hassle so it's great to find alternatives that are much simpler. I don't decorate my apartment since I spend the holidays travelling to visit family but I am going to suggest some of these ideas to them.

  12. I really like the convenience of the lights being projected to the house instead of having to hang them everywhere. The slides also make decorating a breeze.

  16. The new spotlight decorations they now have are fantastic. I always wanted to hang giant ornaments from the tree in our front yard.

  17. I have a Star Shower thing, and it has never been set up outside. It has ended up staying in the house and entertains the kids while the lights dance on the ceiling, haha! I do love lights so we're going to get some hung up this weekend, I hope!

  18. "I am all about the easy." Hermana, BB is soooo there. What a wonderful age we live in when the lights hang up and project all by themselves! Gracias for the intro, didn't know those items were an option. BB2U

  19. Those laser lights are a fun addition to any yard. We are thinking about buying those. We currently have a snowman, tree, presents and Santa out in our yard. We will add more this weekend lol.

  20. The light projectors are lovely I keep looking at buying one but we don't have anywhere that we can put it as our drive is basically our front garden. I am struggling to find ways to decorate outside this year because so the way our house is but I don't want to look like the scrooge of the town

  24. I miss having the big tree in our front house. We used to hang big balls on it and put lights on.

  25. We just spent significant amounts of time today putting up lights. I think this is a great idea and option for next year!

  26. I love those ideas! I really love the Santa in the window. I know it'd help the neighborhood kids keep on the Nice list.

  27. My dad always has a hard time hanging up the lights on the roof. These alternative options are great ideas especially when the weather is getting cold!

  28. I love the Santa in the window. How very awesome to see!

  29. Cool ideas! I am also after easy and cheap decorations. I like the Star Shower, I should get one!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I'm all about simplicity as well. We have one of those projectors and it beats having to help hubby hang lights. We were done setting up outdoors in about 15 minutes. Love it!

  31. I think I will have to try these projectors these year. It would be more fun to see all those colorful lights coming from just one source. It is difficult to hang those little lights and then take them down again after the holidays. I think this projector idea is more practical.

  32. That was cool!! Seems very easy to follow. Will try to work on these before the holidays

  33. These are actually great tips! The best and easiest one is Buy ornaments on clearance and hang on a tree.

  34. I often decorate my home on the inside, but not much on the outside. I would love to have one of those fake Santa falling from the roof to decorate my front yard.
