Red Outdoor Christmas Decoration Ideas – Balls, Bells, Bows and Lights

 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.

Feel free to PIN anything you’d like to save for later!

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.

This is such a brilliant idea.

Hang a string of white lights up as though it were a clothes line then hang Santa’s laundry out to dry.

Brilliant and creative.

Here are the supplies you need:

White Christmas lights with brown wire (so that it looks like a clothes line)

Santa outfit

Wooden Clothespins (not plastic)

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:
