The easiest way to decorate your entryway is with a pre-lit Christmas greenery collection featuring garland, wreaths, swags, and urn fillers in topiaries with a decorative red bow. Use garland hangers to securely hang the holiday greenery around your door. Also, you may want to hang outside Christmas ornaments because they’ll sparkle in your yard with their random twinkle. Finally, you may consider placing lighted gift boxes Christmas decorations with glittering bows, lifelike greenery with faux ice tips and ornaments on the side of your entryway.

Celebrate it with a family of dashing, glittering champagne reindeer in your front yard. The entire family is decked out in a festive red collar with jingle bells. Or, you may opt for an animated juggling snowman and a saluting toy soldier. Both light up to a preset pattern giving the illusion that the snowman is juggling gifts and the solider is saluting. Dazzling.

If you have trees, hang multi-set-twinkling spheres. Want to know why? Because they’ll add extra sparkle to your home during the holiday season with their mercury-glass finish. Or you may prefer outdoor Christmas ornaments that automatically turn on and off at dusk. Mix match to create the perfect holiday display.

Another option is to hang illuminated outdoor Christmas ornaments. The finial-shaped globes (image on the right) pulsate to give a firefly-like effect when multiples are displayed. They automatically turn on at dusk and off after eight hours. And here’s more good news: the LED light source never needs replacing. Just use three AA batteries in each ornament and watch these pretty outdoor Christmas ornaments light up your trees.
