While nothing beats a good quality fence, a great way to show it off during the holidays is through unique decorations. While fence peekers, wreaths, and a strategically placed hat are a good start, you need to focus on lighting. If you are struggling to come up with how to make your wall stand out, we’ve got you covered. Here are a few holiday light ideas for your fence.
Idea #1: Lights With Garlands
A classic vinyl or wooden fence made of post benefits from the green and red garland combination. However, shopping for garlands yields a couple of problems. One being you might not have the extension cable to reach your fence.
One way to get around this is by purchasing standard garlands and solar-powered lights. However, you might also consider a considerable extension cable at about 25 to 50 ft if you want lights and garlands mingled into each other.
Idea #2: Lit Snowflakes and Stars
Fences are the gateway to your home, so there’s no reason not to make it magical when you enter. The liberal application of snowflakes is suitable for both metal and wood fences.
If you have something fancy like a driveway gate, you can use the snowflakes to guide you to that front gate. You can also apply these to a general front gate if you want to mark them.
Combining utility is neat, but having a snowflake or a star glowing in front of your lawn is neat by itself.
Idea #3: Understated Lights
While many homes on your block might take the opportunity to try and compete with the sun, you don’t have to do that. Sometimes, the best thing you can do with your fence and lights is string them across the top.
The simple line of lights is pleasing to the eye while not being overwhelming. In contrast, you might not turn any heads (which is preferable if you get a lot of traffic outside of your home), but you will get a few people who appreciate the understated design choice.
Idea #4: Decorate Your House Like A Semi Truck
On the other hand, lights are a great excuse to outline your house. If you have the capacity, simple lights are a great way to outline your home and fence.
For posts, you can choose anything between a simple line to a box. Ambitious decorators might want to outline every fence post, but you might want to get started on that yesterday for people to enjoy it.
It’s your home, so it is up to you whether you want to have fun with it.
Idea #5: Icicle Lights
Icicle lights are typically done with the roof, but you can choose to place them anywhere. One less prevalent use of this is to place Icicle lights over your fence.
The liberal use of these lights makes for easy decoration. Meanwhile, it appears as though you’ve put quite a bit more effort into the design (despite icicle lights being easy and beautiful).
