20 Best DIY Outdoor Christmas Decorations Ideas for 2016

Here’s your ultimate guide to all the best exterior Christmas decorations with really simple tutorials, using items you probably have left over from last year: LED Christmas lights, artificial Christmas trees, outdoor string lights etc
All the tutorials have really thorough, step by step tutorials – but my two favorites are the ‘Giant Pool Noodle Lollipops’ and the ‘Christmas Light Balls’ and both can be made for under $12 (it just depends how many you want to use in your garden though!)
A lot of the ideas are really simple to make and most of the supplies can be bought online, just make sure you order on time or check what days fedex deliver for Christmas.(Use the slider arrows – Instructions are above images)
