We are just around the corner from one of our favorite holidays at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives: Halloween. Halloween has that slightly creepy feeling to it that makes it so much fun. At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives, we’re the holiday lighting experts, and that doesn’t just mean Christmas. We’re always looking for unique, simple and fun ways to use light to enhance the holidays. Here are some ideas for your outdoor Halloween lighting:
Use your cans and jars. We all have some coffee cans or old spaghetti sauce jars laying around the house. With a little updating, they make the perfect Halloween lighting accessory. If you have a can, poke holes in the side in some type of Halloween themed design, pumpkin, ghost, witch’s hat, etc. If you have jars, stick on some cut out shapes. Place a battery operated candle inside and you’re good to go!
String lights aren’t just for Christmas. Outdoor string lights are common in December, but they can be used for other holidays too. Instead of red and white lights, get purple, orange or green. You can wrap your trees, porch columns, along your stairs or in your garden. The dark glow it gives off will be perfect for your trick or treaters.
Colored lens covers instantly make your home more festive. If you have existing up lights on your property, ask your outdoor lighting company if they provide colored lens. An eerie design is perfect for October, and green and orange lens covers will do just the trick.
Update the lights your already have. One of our favorite updates that is done to outdoor light spheres. Adding vinyl stickers to the sides of the spheres in the shape of ghost eyes and mouth is a fun, temporary update.
Professional light displays will enhance your property. If you’d like something that can be installed and taken down after Halloween, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives also offers outdoor lighting displays. The most common are yard displays that are made with high-quality metal and lights. Isn’t this jack-o-lantern fun?
