When the Christmas season rolls around you might be one of the many homeowners who decks the halls outside your home. If you have a tight budget for outdoor decorations or just want to save every penny you can, here are some recommendations for cheap outdoor Christmas decorations.
Outdoor Christmas Decorations Under $50: Icicle Lights
I remember when icicle lights were a new fad in Christmas decorating and the strands weren’t cheap. At around $25-30 per strand several years ago, they were bought and used sparingly. The prices have dropped considerably and now an 11-foot strand of 100 lights for indoor/outdoor use runs approximately $15 or less at most local and online retailers.
Outdoor Christmas Decorations Under $50: Lighted Tinsel Penguin
This 18-inch penguin lights up in a colorful display for an inexpensive outdoor Christmas decoration that fits any budget. Priced at $16.99 from Target, it is available both online at target.com and in stores. This penguin comes with a stake for placement in your yard and is made of polyester and PVC.
Outdoor Christmas Decorations Under $50: Holiday Living 18″ 5-Count LED Spiral Tree Pathway Markers
This set of LED lights are available at Lowes (check lowes.com for local availability) and are priced at $39.97 for a set of five spiral tree pathway markers. The trees are approximately 18 inches in height and feature 70 lights that change from blue to white in color. While a bit on the pricey side, the LED lights will use less energy than traditional Christmas lights and last longer.
Outdoor Christmas Decorations Under $50: 48″ Wire Frame Standing Buck or 42″ Feeding Doe
Menards offers these charming deer. Each one is pre-lit with 105 clear lights. Priced at $14.99 each, you can easily pick up a herd of these to decorate your yard with and not be out a lot of bucks (groan – yes, I know). Seasonal bargains like this tend to go fast at the local Menards in my area and availability may be limited at certain stores.
Outdoor Christmas Decorations Under $50: 4′ Inflatable Airblown Snowman Carolers
Available from walmart.com (not available in stores), this snowman trio makes an adorable addition to your outdoor decorations. Priced at $29, this decoration is also easy on the budget.
