Watch the video or read below to see how easy these Christmas lights are.

1. Garden Stake Christmas Lights

I love garden stake lights.  They are so easy to install.  Simply put the stake together, turn the solar panel on and push them into the ground.  Done.  Instant Christmas lights in minutes.  No wiring and you can move them around.  Being solar they automatically turn on at dusk.

I created this look with 3 boxes of Gift Box Stakes from Bunnings.  Each box contains 2 solar stakes.

2. Snowflake Projector

When I saw these snowflake projectors, I knew I needed to get one!  You simply plug the projector into a power point and position it about 3 metres from the wall or surface you want to project the snowflakes onto.  You can wall mount the projector or place it in the garden with a garden stake.

I used the Arlec LED Snowflake Projector but there are plenty of cool projectors to choose from.

The projector was hard to capture on a photo because the snowflakes are dancing around.  You can see it better on the video.  Of all the lights I did, this one is really fun.  My daughter says she’s using it in her room after Christmas.

3. Solar Power Fairy Lights

I love solar power lights.  No wires or plugs, and the lights turn themselves on and off.  To add some colour to the garden where I installed the gift box garden stake lights, I used some coloured fairy lights to wrap around my garden orb.

I used Click Festive Multi-Colour LED bud lights 100 pack to create this pretty display.

4. Battery Fairy Lights

Don’t forget to add Christmas lights inside as well.  The dining room is a great space to enjoy Christmas lights while you dine.  I created this simple table centrepiece to brighten the table.

To create this centrepiece I filled a large round tray with a gold garland from Wheel & Barrow, some gold plastic baubles and Click Festive White LED battery power bud lights 200 pack.  See similar 100 pack bud lights here.

Finally I created some festive candle light by adding some micro LED lights to my hurricane lamp.
