Hanging Christmas lights on your home and landscaping might be a holiday tradition, but it also takes a lot of time and energy to do correctly. Not to mention how dangerous it can be to access roofs and trees. According to the (CPSD) Consumer Product Safety Division, there are about 200 injuries each day during the holiday season, and about half of them are decorating-related falls.

Christmas light projectors are a convenient outdoor Christmas decoration, and do a great job of creating the festive atmosphere you want. They work by projecting colored lasers or LEDs through colored lenses, and offer a variety of lighting effects and patterns.

What to Consider

Christmas Scene

The most important thing to consider when choosing a projector, is what you want projected. If you’d prefer a more classic lighting scheme that looks the most like traditional Christmas lights, go with a model that uses lasers to create their lighting effect. Or, if you’re a bit more adventurous and want something more fun and festive, consider a projector that can also generate images like Christmas trees and Santa Claus.

Temperature Rating

Depending on the climate, you should also make sure your projector will be able to stand up to moisture, as well as extreme temperatures. While some models are designed to withstand temperatures as low as 30 degrees below Fahrenheit, others are less robust, so make sure to check first before purchasing.

How We Selected

I used my own experience with Christmas light projectors to put together this list, having used them to decorate several homes in upstate New York. The heavy snowfall in that area, combined with low temperatures, helped me recognize the importance of having options that could stand up to their environment As a result, I added a good variety of weather-resistant options to the list, as well as a few that are less rugged, and might be better suited for warmer climates. I did my best to include a range of prices as well, so regardless of your budget, you should find a projector that works for you.

1) YMing Snowflake Projector

$28.99

Shop Now

This projector would be a good choice for anyone looking to create a general winter-wonderland-type mood, and not specifically a Christmas or holiday atmosphere.

Its adjustable neck can rotate 180 degrees and you can use either a stake or platform base to set it in place. This model allows you to choose between two snowflake designs, and is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.

Since it only has one color, it lacks the variety offered by most of the other options on our list, but that simplicity could make it a good fit for someone who just wants a hassle-free option.

2) LedMAll Motion

$119.89

With a wide coverage area of 3,000-4,000 square feet, this Ledmall option would be a convenient choice for larger homes. It also offers eight moving light patterns, and combined with red, blue, and green lasers, should provide a good amount of variety when it comes to exterior light shows.

Its IP67 waterproof rating gives it that extra level of durability, and the 25-foot power cable should allow for you to place it effectively.

This model is a bit pricier than similar options, but the included security lock should protect your investment from any potential thieves.

$310.00

The hassle-free operation of this projector makes it a great choice for those who just want a plug-and-play option that doesn’t require a ton of work to set up. You just plug the power cord into your home outlet, stab the spike into the ground, and you’re good to go. Best of all, the built-in sensor automatically turns the unit on when the sun goes down, and off when it rises again.

This projector doesn’t come with a remote, but with just two settings, and this automatic operation, you probably won’t miss having one.

$12.49

If you’re more interested in Christmas-time imagery and expressions than sparkly lights, you might appreciate this projector. Its powerful LEDs project six different scenes, and they can be programmed to swirl around or remain stationary depending in your preference.

Its lack of remote control could make this projector less convenient than you might like, although its low price and hassle-free setup could be worth the trade-off. This model also features a festive casing—green with a red bow—which allows it to blend in with the rest of your lawn ornaments.

5) Points of Light 122

$24.88

Shop Now

With an impressive 15 color combinations and 122 lighting effects, this projector would be a great choice for homeowners who want a wide variety of light options this holiday season. Its coverage extends up to 50 feet in width, and the projector itself is designed to look like a holiday ornament, which is a nice perk.

The included remote is simple to use, and with just four buttons to choose from, is much easier to navigate than others that can have eight or 10 buttons. The unit can be positioned using the stake function, or expanded out to create a tripod.
