String lights instantly create a warm, cozy atmosphere and can be used on patios, fences, umbrellas, trees, and porches. These are a great option when you want soft, cozy lighting and do not have an outlet nearby. You can shop for your own on Amazon with my affiliate link here: Solar powered outdoor string lights . I hung these lights by attaching a bamboo pole to the deck using zip ties. I drilled a hole in the top of the bamboo and used twine to secure the lights to the pole. At the other end of the lights, I used nails in nearby trees and small hooks attached to our deck columns.
Sarah created an absolutely stunning pergola with string lights firmly attached to the rafters. I hung the string lights on the tree branches, and you can find all the sourcing for solar powered lanterns affiliate linked here on Amazon!
I love how these warm LED lights add so much character to this already amazing porch. Courtney uses string lights hung low over her outdoor table for a stunning effect!
This is an older post from Sarah and is a beautiful example of how to add lighting to your outdoor gazebo canopy! Cheryl attached her string lights right to the deck railing which is a great option for smaller spaces!
Drill hooks into your siding and columns to easily hang the lights in place. You don’t have to have a lot of lights or a large outdoor space to make it the cutest ever! Here I used my front porch topiaries on other side of the table to hold my string of lights in place.
