My husband and I just recently moved to a new house. In the craziness of packing I was reintroduced to things I didn’t remember I even owned. One item that I packed up to move that know I will use at our new place? Halloween lights.
I can’t believe I forgot about my outdoor Halloween lights. There wasn’t a good place for them at our last house so I must have just packed them away. They are purple and green string lights that I used to line my front porch. They have that pretty, but slightly creepy, look to them that only works during the month of October.
When people think outdoor holiday décor, many only think about the Christmas and Hanukkah season, but there is so much more. String lights, for example, can be used for any holiday, Christmas, Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Fourth of July and more. The color of the bulb is key to making them look festive for that respective holiday. While the Fourth of July would have red, white and blue lights, Halloween, has purple, green and orange. There are even some lights you can get that flicker with reds and oranges to look like fire, so much fun!
Just like Christmas, there is also a ton of illuminated lawn décor options for Halloween. From witches and Jack-O-Lanterns to ghosts and spiders, there are endless possibilities.
Jack-O-Lanterns are synonymous with Halloween, hence the reason why there are so many options to incorporate them into your Halloween design. I love having real carved pumpkins out on the actual night when trick or treaters are coming by the house, but they don’t last very long. They only look good for a few days before they begin to wilt. Lighted Jack-O-Lanterns never shrivel up. This one is flat, but there are also some available that are rounded and can be appreciated night and day.
