Buying Guide

The best outdoor Christmas decorations for a large yard can create a festive scene for your neighbors to admire.

A large yard is a blank canvas for holiday decorations and spreading Christmas cheer.

Christmas train decorations take up lots of space. These displays stretch across your yard, lighting up a vast area without cluttering it by adding multiple Christmas characters or scenes to your property.

Outdoor Christmas train decorations are fun, detailed, and eye-catching. Twinkling lights across all the train cars can illuminate your yard and the beloved characters riding along in the train.

You can also adapt this decoration idea and opt for a more traditional Santa’s sleigh design. This allows you to incorporate reindeer dashing through the fresh snow in your yard.

Choosing an outdoor Christmas train decoration made of the right weather-proof material is important if you want your train set to last, and high-density plastic, powder-coated metals, and treated wood are excellent options.

If you live in a warm, dry location, a painted plywood Christmas train set is a good option. This type of decoration allows you to incorporate bright colors and beloved characters into your Christmas theme.

For climates that deal with snow, ice, and rain during the winter, opt for an inflatable train decoration made from water-proof nylon designed to withstand weather conditions. Alternatively, put a bright and shiny rope light decoration wound around a metal frame in your yard. The lights are enclosed in a protective rope, making it perfect to shine through the snow.

LED lights, especially commercial ones, are one of the best and most popular Christmas lights on the market and ideal for outdoor Christmas train decorations. They are popular among professional installers for their high durability and energy efficiency.

Many people use LED lights for outdoor Christmas train decoration because they offer outstanding illumination without sending your utility bills skyrocketing. In addition, they use much less electricity than incandescent lights.

They are also great for the outdoor festive season because they provide sharper and brighter lighting than incandescents. LED lights are also available in a wider range of colors than most other bulb types.
