Alternative Earthcare shares three traditional holiday display ideas to get you started on your outdoor holiday design planning.


  1. Walking through a winter wonderland Few displays are as awe-inspiring as the winter wonderland created by wrapping trees in twinkle lights. Wrap trunks and branches in lights in the front yard or down driveways for a festive display that will have passers-by slowing down to take a look. Trees can be wrapped in standard lights if outdoor outlets are available, or can be done with one of the arrays of solar options that are now available.


  1. A winter gathering Create a front yard winter gathering by utilizing stand-alone animal light displays. Use a focal point to gather the animals around, such as a potted tree lit up with lights and decorated with natural elements like pinecones and berries, interwoven with silver and gold baubles. Arrange stand alone lit animals such as deer, raccoons, bears, and other woodland critters, around the focal point.


  1. A Winter welcome Greet guests with a warm holiday welcome with an elegant and festive front door display. Trim door frames with tree boughs or garland with twinkle lights interwoven throughout them. Add a wreath with berries and frosted pine cones to the door. Flank the entrance with tall urns filled with birch branches, frosted pine cones and fresh greenery, which can also contain small twinkle lights within the display. Prop up an old wooden sled with a bow and greenery and even a pair of old ice skates, to complete the scene.
