Free Lawn Decorations

craftylady-2006December 3, 2006

I found all of these Christmas lawn decorations. The trees do light up but everything else needs to be restrung with lights. I just like that I now have lawn decorations for the holiday whereas I used not to and I have a little holiday scene in my small front yard. There is the Santa sleigh, five reindeer (4 large, 1 baby one), the street lamp pole, and the two trees. I also found the white spray painted branches with the bows on them.

Toomuchglass - I found them out curb shopping. Not all in the same place, here and there around town, for the past couple of months, driving around to a store or wherever. I found the Santa sleigh and two more of the large reindeer last week as I was going to work. I was sooooo happy to find the sleigh. Now I just need a Santa. My neighbor has one that her kids broke, maybe she'll toss it over the fence to me (LOL).

If you decide to restring them, our neighbor had a white deer and took lights and just looped them around the frame. Looked easier to do then replacing the lights as the manuf. strung them. If it were me I would have used WHITE corded lights instead of green. During the day it looks..odd. I would love to find some old brown deer, animals. I would forget the lights and leave them in my woods all year.

Arcy, Thank you for the restringing idea. I was thinking, boy that's a lot of work to restring them, how can I do without spending a fortune on lights. I have seen the brown deer around town and they look better than the white I think so I even thought of taking off the lights completely on the deer and spray painting mine brown. As for other animals, a neighbor down the street has a "cow" - it's soooo cute, got the black spots on the side with a little Santa hat. Further down there is an ice igloo and some penguins, very pretty.

I too thought of just spray painting over the white, so now I am on a mission. Save the land fills from unwanted animals. Send me your darkened deer, moose, bear I will give them permenant homes under the oaks guarding my hosta!

I know this is an old post, but I'm kinda new and am skimming through all the awesome posts here. Congrats on you great finds! Those are so expensive, what a deal!I had a funny thought when you answered toomuchglass's question about where you found them- curb shopping.....how close were they to the curb? :) couldn't resist!

They were super close to the curb TTRBB, they were being thrown out. That's fair game around here!
