In the old days people would set up and light 3ft Yuletide Lane in a private holiday home or church to cheer up a soul and give them inspiration. Nowadays there is more to the holiday spirit than lights and tinsel. LED bulbs and battery-powered LED lights make a big difference and can be incorporated into your 3ft lit Santa’s appearance. Santa caps can be purchased or even LED beards for the man of the house, which can then be affixed to the top of the Santa hat for that authentic look. The man himself can even go “style” with a Santa beard that matches his Christmas decor.
There is also no need for Santa to leave his bag or basket in the sleigh to bring good tidings home with a LED lighted reindeer, instead he can sit on the couch and play music from his new CD player while watching the beautiful decorations come to life around him. Add some artificial reindeers to give him a little added oomph and to give him a little nudge in the right direction. A pre-lit artificial Christmas tree with dancing reindeer can add a dash of whimsy to the exterior of the home. Decorating the exterior of the home in a fanciful theme makes the inside seem like another world with all the Christmas decor that is so often used.
Other Christmas decoration ideas include hanging LED twinkling lights from the ceiling, adding LED candy canes to the table and using LED lighting for special decorations such as the Santa hat. These decorations will not only give you pleasure and joy while you are inside the house, but they will bring delight and smiles to the faces of all the visitors that stop by. With Christmas right around the corner it is important to make sure that your home has everything it needs to set the perfect scene for the celebration. If your budget does not allow you to buy an elaborate tree, then there is no reason to despair because you can always create your own masterpiece by using LED lights. Creating an intricate scene of tinsel and lights with a beautiful backdrop, will surely bring joy to your home for many years to come.
One of the most popular things to use with LED lights – especially when lit up with more than one strand – is the “Tinsel Saver” lights – especially popular with the children at Christmas time. The Tinsel Saver lights consist of a long piece of string with tinsel on both ends. When the string is hung and draped from the ceiling to a doorway or even over the doors and windows, the lighted strands reflect light onto the tinsel thus creating an array of dancing lights – perfect for your tree. This way you can light up the entire tree with just one strand of LED lights – perfect for those tight spaces between branches and two small areas where you do not want to clutter your tree with lights.
But if you really want to spend a lot of money and get several strands of LED lights, you can opt for the “Lantern Strings” which is a little bit cheaper and easier to use. You simply have to hang the string from a door knob and attach the lights to the string. Once you do so, the lights – along with the entire string of lights – reflect off of the ceiling to create an array of dancing lights that are truly enchanting. You can use multiple strands of strings in this manner to create a wonderful effect – you just have to be creative.
Of course, to really transform your tree into something magical, you can also go ahead and add some holiday themes to the decorations. What could be more special than an array of tiny silver balls in a tinsel color that you can fill with treats like snowflakes and Santa’s face? Or maybe you could try putting up a row of twinkling or sparkling lights – snowmen, Santa’s face, or some other stockings or reindeer on top of the tinsel. And you can do all of this – and much more – with only a few strands of LED lights.
LED tinsel is available in many different shapes and sizes. And as it is really quite cheap when compared to other materials like glass or plastic, you can even experiment with using different colors of tinsel. For instance, you can opt for clear or frosted glass and tinsel that come in various colors such as green, red, blue, purple and yellow. Some people even go the extra mile and go for fancy ribbons and bows along with their string of tinsel. There are a lot of choices to choose from – you just have to explore!
Aside from all these things, the best part about LED lighting for your tree is that it is environmentally friendly. So there is no worry about using up your Christmas energy if you happen to have lights plugged all around your home. Your LED lights won’t use up power. In fact, they are so efficient that the LED lights only use 60% of the energy of regular Christmas lights. So you’ll be helping out Mother Earth and your pocketbook at the same time. With so many great things about LED lights for your Yule Tree, there is no reason that you should not get them this year.
