Where to Decorate With Halloween Lights
Halloween lights don’t necessarily have to decorate the entire exterior of your house, like Christmas lights. Instead, get a bit creative when highlighting your home with Halloween lights.
- Use Halloween lights on windows and windowsills to give each room of the house an eery feeling.
- Drape Halloween lights over the fireplace.
- Line doorways with multi-colored lights.
- Place pathway lights down stairways and loop string lights through stairway banisters.
- Some people may opt to have a Halloween tree. While this isn’t common, there are ornaments that are made for Halloween trees. Find a faux tree for Halloween that’s made to look sparse and wiry. Wrap Halloween colored lights around it and hang skulls from the branches.
Halloween lights aren’t the only way to light up your themed home. Find skulls with eyes that light up in a Halloween decoration shop. Carve out pumpkins and place battery operated candles inside. This is a great way to make cheap Halloween lights. You can also place strobe lights in your home to create a haunted house feel. Just make sure that people can still see where they’re going. You don’t want the strobe lights to temporarily blind anyone.
