Wrapping Lights Around Palm Trees
Wrapping Palm Trunks with Lights: wrapping Christmas lights around the trunk of a palm tree is similar to the way you would wrap any other trees. Before getting started, we recommned reading our complete guide on wrapping trees with Christmas lights, but we've also provided some quick step by step instructions below:
Lighting Palm Tree Fronds: Decorating the fronds can be a little tricky but it does add some serious wow factor to a landscape. The most common way to light fronds is to run a string of lights directly down the center of the frond and use twist ties or zip ties to secure it every few inches. Lighting the fronds closest to the trunk is all you'll need to create an impactful display. If you want the entire canopy lit or if your fronds are very tall & wide, we recommend hiring a professional light installer to help make sure your palm tree lights are installed safely.

Lighted Palm Tree Decorations
If wrapping real palm trees isn't an option for you, there are still plenty of fun ways to invite the tropics into your holidays or year round home decor! Faux palm trees with lights and rope light palms are two very distinct designs with indoor and outdoor decorating appeal. The gentle sway of curved palm trees with warm white fairy lights accenting the trunk and green LEDs sprinkled throughout the fronds creates an attractive display for indoor decorating. Curved palm trees can also be taken outdoors for temporary use during parties and events as long as they're protected from moisture and rain. Rope light palm trees with holographic fronds can be used outdoors with no cover required. They're incredibly popular as party decorations and add a lively atmosphere to tiki bars or themed game rooms.
Palm Tree String Lights
Have yourself a tropical little Christmas, or create your own little slice of paradise anytime you like. Laid-back and full of fun, palm tree string lights are a cheerful addition to any room decor. You can wrap palm tree string lights around your Christmas tree, hang them over a bedroom mirror, accent a kid's play room, or add a festive accent to your pool area - they'll travel just about anywhere as long as there's an outlet to power them!
