Thread: Christmas 2022

    Christmas 2022

    Yes, Iím one of those people who start planning next yearís display before the current year is over. Iím relatively an amateur, so I have to plan everything out, so I have to start really early! My plan for next yearís yard decoration is a Winter Wonderland, with lots of bright white lights, snow men, a couple of lighted white deer, AND SNOW! The biggest problem in having, Is I live in South Louisiana, so the chances of having a white Christmas are slim to none and I canít figure out how to or what to use to put in my yard for the snow effect. I canít use fake snow or fiberfill because I donít want it blowing all over my neighborhood. I thought about white plastic sheeting, but I donít want to use that to cover my entire yard for a whole month. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can make my yard look snowy? Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

    Michelle_70501! Glad you've joined us!

    Your idea sounds really nice, but I'm afraid I'm not able to help with any ideas. Does your lawn stay actively growing during the Christmas season down there?

    I've heard about this product called snowonder, but i never tried it so i don't know if it's any good.

    The only thing I can think of is to get or make some fake (plastic or fiberglass} snow, and attach steaks to the bottom to secure it to the ground.

    Do you mean like snowdrifts, kind of like you'd see in a snow-themed amusement park? That sounds like a good idea.

    That's what I was thinking.
    This is for Halloween, but I'm sure the same idea could be used to make snow. If the poster has a fence, they could even put some across the top.

    Another concept is to wait for a sale on some white sheets. Some piles of dirt (or other bulky items) can make it look like drifts. Or depending on the size, snow blankets work as well...
    "Maybe Christmas," he thought, "doesn't come from a store. Maybe Christmas perhaps, means a little bit more!"
