When it comes to decorative outdoor lighting, let the architecture and landscape of your house -- along with your imagination and our ideas -- guide you. With little effort, you can give your home extra holiday sparkle. Waterproofing spray keeps ribbons looking crisp in the face of wintry weather.
Wide satin ribbon
Fashion a wide, bold-colored ribbon in satin or another fabric into a generous bow. Even ends by trimming.
Spray with surface sealer, available at craft stores, and let dry before displaying outdoors.
