Order Some Halloween Black Lights
If you’re looking for colored lights to hang on the exterior of your home, consider investing in some black lights. When black lights are used in the dark, they can transform a lifeless space into an eerie and exciting Halloween scene. Consider swapping out your regular lights on the porch with black lights for a spooky effect. If you’re staging a graveyard scene in your front yard, you can paint over your scary tombstones with transparent glow-in-the-dark paint to make them stick out even more.
Be Careful When Installing Exterior Lights
When you’re ready to hang your new Halloween lights, it’s important to be cautious so you don’t end up getting hurt. Before you pull out the ladder to start installing your lights, plug them into a socket to ensure all of your bulbs are working. You may need to swap out a few old lights for some new ones, and once each light is illuminated you can get started on decorating. Make sure you use a sturdy ladder when it comes time to hang your lights, so you don’t risk a fall to the lawn.
Place Strobe Lights Around Your Front Yard
Strobe lights can make the perfect accompaniment to your front yard, turning your home into a creepy and enticing graveyard scene. When you pair our C9 LED Green Strobe Light with a fog machine, all of the kids in the neighborhood will be raving about your Halloween decor. This tactic can be especially scary if you decide to hang skeletons or ghostly creatures from your outside trees, as the shadows will flicker and sway as children and parents pass by. When arranging your strobe light and fog machine, make sure that the light is aimed either up or down into the fog, to create the haunting effect you’re looking for.
Keep Your Extension Cords Out Of Sight
As you may already know, hanging Halloween lights requires quite a few extension cords to get the job done. Before you purchase just any old extension cord, make sure you choose a cord that was created for outdoor use. Try to avoid placing these cords in high-traffic areas where kids and parents will be walking, as this may lead to an unwanted injury down the line. Use electrical tape to secure the cords to ensure they aren’t sticking out in plain view of trick or treaters.
At The Christmas Light Emporium, we offer a unique selection of colored electrical tape to keep your Halloween decorations safe and secure. From traditional black tape to green, we offer a unique selection of electrical tape online. Browse our holiday lighting store to find all of the Halloween lights and decor you need!
