51 Hanukkah Yard Decoration Ideas

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, they say – and I happen to agree! The holiday season can be such a celebratory, uplifting, wonderful time for reliving and making new memories, whatever holidays you celebrate in your household. In ours, we happen to celebrate both Christmas and Hanukkah, and so finding the right outdoor décor to welcome the season and invite guests in has been a wonderful thing each year.

We have limited space in our yard, but we still want to do things right. So, I’ve carefully selected a collection of items for our home. This list, however, contains the other items I also wish I could decorate with if we just had the room! So, if you’re looking for the right DIY and pre-made Hanukkah décor, I think you’ll find some great options here.
