When it’s time to decorate for Christmas, you can’t forget about the front yard. Sure, sure, you can put up some lights around your house and maybe even hang a wreath on your front door, but to really take things up a notch, some Christmas yard art is the way to go. The good thing with yard art is that there are plenty of themes and types of decorations, so it’s easy to match your personal style. Whether you want to channel your inner Griswold or you prefer a more minimalist approach, there are plenty of ways to deck your yard with Christmas yard art to ensure your home is the most talked about spot on the block (in a good way).
From ornaments that hang in trees to beautiful nativity sets, an inflatable Santa Claus to lighted reindeer, there are so many ways to incorporate Christmas decor into your yard. Similar to the way you decorate the interior of your home, it’s a good idea to choose a couple of different style items that have a cohesive theme (i.e. snowmen) or one type of decor that has multiple different subjects (i.e. lights or inflatables). Either way, keep it festive and fun and so that it’s something that you love coming home to!
Read on for our list of the best Christmas yard art, listed in no particular order.
1. Teak Isle Christmas Joy Nativity Yard Sign
Joy from giving to others. Joy on your loved one’s face when they open the perfect present. Joy when you think about the true reason from the season. Joy is all around during the Christmas season, so why not celebrate it with a large “Joy” yard sign. Each of the white letters is attached to a stake that can be hit into the ground, and the “O” has a nativity scene on the inside, and a star on top. The letters are 23.5 inches wide and 35.5 inches tall (43.5 inches to the top of the star), so it’s easy to see the sign from the street. This yard art is something that you can definitely use year over year, as it’s made of marine grade plastic that is really durable. And if your yard isn’t already well lit, you may want to add a solar spotlight to be sure you can see the sign at night as well.
2. Sienna Spiral Christmas Tree Yard Art Decoration
A Christmas tree is probably the most iconic and popular Christmas decoration. Add a Christmas tree to your front yard with this pretty spiral Christmas tree. Both the wire and LED lights that cover the spiral are pure white, so the tree adds a very ethereal look to your front yard. This tree is six feet tall and can be used on it’s own, set in a cluster of three, or you could put one on each side of your porch. This is a simple decoration that is a great choice for someone who wants to have some Christmas yard art, but doesn’t want to go overboard.
3. National Tree Company Sisal Gift Boxes (Set of 3)
This set of three gift boxes makes an adorable Christmas yard art set-up. Each of the boxes is a different height (six inches, eight inches, and 10 inches high), and has a pretty ribbon tied in a bow on top. The gift boxes have clear lights on the inside, so the boxes look especially beautiful when they are lit up at night. You can choose between white with red ribbon, red with gold ribbon, green with red ribbon, or gold with red ribbon. These would look adorable on a front porch or in the corner of your yard, and they could even be used indoors.

There are 12 figures in total, and each one is attached to a stake that can be pounded into the ground. The entire scene is approximately 13 feet wide, and is 44 inches high at the tallest point (top of the star). The set is made with all-weather, fade-resistant PVC plastic, so it’s designed to withstand even the harshest winter.
5. Hofert Lighted Candy Cane Christmas Lawn Stakes
Add some Christmas cheer to your front yard with these cute lighted candy canes. The set comes with eight candy canes, and each candy cane is 29.5 inches tall. Because there are eight candy canes, you could line your driveway or the walkway up to your front door, or you could even circle them around a tree in your front yard. The candy canes are attached to stake that can be pounded into the ground, and each cane has bulbs that light up the entire candy cane. The candy canes are the classic red and white color, so they look beautiful in a snowy setting. This is a fun Christmas yard art choice if you are looking for something that provides a little bit of whimsy.

The star can be hung from a tree, the side of your house, or a separate pole, and the light strands can easily be staked into the ground with the included anchor stakes.

If you’re not into hanging lights on your roof, this is an easy way to have a lot of lights in your yard without all of the extra work.
