There is a great assortment of Christmas yard decorations to choose from, and it’s hard to know where to begin and when to stop. When selecting your outdoor Christmas decorations, first of all, check to make sure they are made to be used outdoors. Second, be very careful not to overload the extension cords that you’ll be using to light up the Christmas yard decorations .
After dealing with safety issues , it’s time to select and design your yard. First, pull out the proper tools, including the ladder; a hammer, both large and small; nails, clips, brackets and any other mounting items; and a tape measure. Then pull out all your outdoor Christmas decorations from storage and take inventory of what you have to place in different areas of your yard.
Once you’ve separated your outdoor Christmas decorations from your indoor decoration, carefully examine the illuminated items and check for any damage; test them with an extension cord and replace any bulbs that don’t light up. This procedure will also go with all your interior Christmas lights as well. If you find that there are a lot of broken lights, purchase a light storage reel or bags that are made specifically for Christmas lights.
Next, place all your Christmas yard decorations where you think they look best in your yard and take a good assessment. Do you need to order more? Or, do you have enough? They say ‘bigger is always better’, right?
