Brighten up those dark winter nights by using holiday lights inside your home. No tree necessary but a cute dog helps. This one is my favorite (I bet you can guess why.) Hanging holiday lights behind sheer curtains makes for a soft, dreamy scene inside any room.

Inside the Front Door
We always focus on decorating the outside of the front door. Why not trim both sides with festive holiday lights? You can make your guests feel festive coming and going!

Around the Menorah
Use micro-lights around the Menorah. They will add extra shimmer to your sparkly decor. Make sure to place in a window so the decorations can be seen from outside.

Down the Staircase Banister
Very traditional and not unique but I had to share how pretty this lighted garland looks with extra ornaments and decor. These additional details make the difference between ordinary and extraordinary.

Backdrop on a Wall
The designer of this backdrop, The Frugal Homemaker, created the design with a spare curtain rod and curtain panels. She said it’s magical at night and likes it so much it will be up at least through winter.

Inside Jars and Vases
Micro-lights are perfect for smaller areas. Micro-lights fit in tight spaces and are not too bright. They act as highlighters for the decor they surround. The holiday lights pictured below are found at Brookstone.
Instead of hanging holiday lights around a window hang them inside the window. These star string lights are a fun way to dress up a window for the holidays. These lights are available through Walmart online only.

Here’s a charming idea for displaying cards. Stringing holiday lights on the wall is an easy DIY project and is perfect for showing off your collection. Fairy Lights & Fun has more cute pictures and inspiration on this project and more.
On Furry Friends
Finally, if all the above ideas cause any extra stress, you can always light up your furry friends and take an adorable picture to post on Facebook or Instagram.
