 Red Outdoor Christmas DIY Decorating Ideas

Red is my favorite color, so putting up red outdoor Christmas decorations is so much fun for me!

I’ve found photos for inspiration, so I dug around to find the items required to make the displays as shown in the photos.

It was great fun searching for everything.

Lighted Hanging Basket with Red Christmas Ball Ornaments

This is so simple, yet so pretty.

You use a craft twig bird nest and twist around some fairy lights on the outside.  Then fill the inside up with red Christmas ornaments.

Make sure that you get the fairy lights that have the timer, then you won’t have to worry about turning it on and off every night.

Santa would appreciate a little rest on his busy night.  This would be a fabulous display to have at the front porch.  It’s thoughtful and different from what everyone else does.

It makes your house warm and inviting even before anyone rings the doorbell.

Your guests will love you sense of style.

It’s fun thinking outside of the box!

Here’s where you can find the items in this picture:

Best Pre-lit Christmas Trees for Front Porch

The easiest way to add beautiful elegance at Christmas time is to have a Christmas tree outside your front door – that is pre lit AND turns it self on and off automatically.

Welcome to the wonderful world of pre-lit Christmas trees for the front porch!

They are designed to be left outside, they are worry free and they are beautiful.

Because they are battery operated, you don’t have to worry about extension cords or if there is an outlet nearby.  You can move them around wherever you want.

Although the urns look heavy, the whole thing weighs about 7 pounds – easy enough to carry or move.  The bottom has the most weight so that the tree does not get blown over in the wind.

You do have to some assembly when you buy these types of pre-lit trees (though it is very easy to do):

  • Insert the tree into the pot
  • Shape the branches as they may have been squished or bent in the packing.
  • Insert 4 ZZ 1.5V batteries in the battery box (and close)

You’re done!

DIY Lighted Grapevine Pumpkin with String Lights

You can get the complete directions from Jen Goode.

Materials you need:

  • Grape vine wreath
  • Black spray paint
  • Craft string or twine
  • String of lights
  • Painters tape
  • Black craft wire
  • Optional: glitter and clear spray sealer
  • Additional tools: wire cutters and scissors
