For Christmas
Light Decorations

Sparkle, dazzle, and shine!

Discover our top 4 bright ideas to style your home
with stunning Christmas lights, indoors and out.

Get inspired with brilliant Christmas decorations for festive
cheer, including string lights, light show projections,
rope lights, candles, and much more.


Get creative with string lights in
classic white or multi-coloured hues.

4 Bright Ideas For Christmas Light Decorations

Decorative string lights aren't just for trees and front porches; wrap them around a picture frame
or mirror, use them to hang photographs on a wire with clothespins, or fill empty wine bottles with
a jumble of lights to create a beautiful centrepiece.

If you're more in the mood to keep up holiday tradition this year, be sure to plan ahead a colour
theme before decking out your indoors and outdoors.

How many lights do I need for my Christmas tree?

When hanging your Christmas lights on your tree, aim for 100 bulbs for every 1.5 feet as a general
rule to start; you can always choose to add more layers for extra shine.

Tree Height Number of Lights
6 - 7 Feet 400 - 700
7.5 - 8.5 Feet 700 - 1,000
9 - 10 Feet 1,000 - 1,300
12 Feet 1,500 - 2,000

Charm your neighbours with
projection lights and laser light shows.

4 Bright Ideas For Christmas Light Decorations

Why not shoot a swirling spray of kaleidoscopic lights or snow flurries onto the exterior of your
home and property? It's a quick and effortless way to light up a large area!

Light show projection lights use super-bright LED technology, come in a variety of colours, and
swivel easily to any position or angle. Intricate details come to life against flat surfaces such as
your front porch, roof, or garage door.

For even bigger effect, use laser projectors to instantly blanket your home outdoors in bright,
dancing specks of light. Instead of spending hours hanging holiday lights, laser projectors such as
the Elf Light can set you up for the season in minutes. The Elf Light instantly projects thousands
of sparkling lights on home and landscape, making Christmas decorating a snap!


Experiment with rope lights and
net lights for breathtaking results.

4 Bright Ideas For Christmas Light Decorations

Rope lights are accent lighting that's flexible and easily shaped to become anything you imagine!
They work best as highlights, whether they're lined along the perimeter of your windows, doors,
and ceilings indoors, or when they help provide ambient lighting to along the edges of your garden,
deck or patio.

Feeling crafty? As a DIY holiday project this year, try crocheting a border around a string of rope
lights to create a lit rug, trivet, or placemat!

Looking for more ways to make your Christmas décor pop? Use net lights as an attractive room
divider in an open space or hang them overhead as a canopy outdoors, a perfect addition to set
the mood for party guests. You can also use them to drape over tree trunks, your entire lawn or
roof — Santa will be able to spot your house right away!


Don't forget to add candles everywhere!

4 Bright Ideas For Christmas Light Decorations

Nothing sets the holiday scene like the warm, flickering glow of a
beautiful set of candles over dinner.

Whether you're looking for battery-powered LED candles, a set of classic
tea lights
, or romantic Christmas pillar candles, there are plenty of real and artificial
candles in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colours.

For a simple centrepiece, add a group of five candles in beautiful candle holders and surround them with
pine cones, cranberries, or sprigs of pine needles from your local Lowe's Winter Garden Centre.
Sprinkle some artificial snow to finish it off, or add sparkles in gold or silver for a touch of elegance.
