Create A Shadow With Your Lights
If you want to get creative with your Halloween lights, you can position them to cast a shadow on your home or other decorations in your yard. To make shadows loom large and creepy, place your lights low to the ground and aim them in a slightly upwards direction. When you position your Halloween lights at this angle, it will produce elongated, deformed shadows when anyone or anything passes by it. Even the neighborhood squirrels will cast a frightful shadow! If you want to take it a step further, consider using partially-covered lenses or position cutouts in front of the lights. There are a variety of ghost and ghoul templates available online that you can use to create your own spooky cutouts, as well.
Choose The Best Colored Lights
When it comes to shopping for Halloween lights, there will be many different colors to choose from. Black lights are a Halloween classic, and you can get creative by placing black lights on your front porch. If you want to create a more mystical theme, consider buying dark blue lights instead of black. Classic moviemakers often use dark blue lights to emulate moonlit nights or dark interior scenes. Many homeowners will hang a dark blue light bulb in their porch light fixture, which can give the perfect lighting for a graveyard display.
If you’re looking for a way to truly impress incoming trick or treaters, order our Halloween Witch with Cauldron two-piece lighting set. This durable and attractive light display features a spooky witch as she stands over a cauldron. Everyone passing by your home will stop to admire this decorative piece of Halloween decor!
Mimic Flames With Your Lights
Add even more flare to your front yard by mimicking flames with flickering orange lights. Flickering lights will help deepen nearby shadows, and it will appear as if they are moving and shifting with the midnight air. You could also add a light or two to the carved pumpkins on your outside porch to greet visitors as they approach your front door. LED candles are an excellent way to provide the effect of a flickering flame, but without the dangers of an open flame.
To achieve an even scarier and more eerie environment, add a fog machine to your Halloween lights. If you’re thinking about adding strobe lights, the fog will suggest the presence of haunted spirits and ghosts. String some of our Red Mini Lights along the walkway to your front door to help guide Trick or Treaters to your front door.
Add A Projector For Spooky Effects
If you truly want to be the bell of the ball this Halloween, consider investing in an LED projector to show holiday projections outside of your home. Our Prolmage 800 Lumen LED Projector is ideal for holiday special effects that require projection. This projector can also be used to watch TV shows, videogames, and movies. Once you have a projector, it’s time to get down to the visuals! Our Dead Walkers Projection Effect is the perfect Halloween DVD to project outside a zombie-stricken home. With this DVD, you get to watch hoards of zombies walk down a hallway, break windows, and appear against multiple backgrounds from fog, to rooms, to black. As one of the spookiest displays of digital decoration, we highly recommend this DVD!
