The weather is finally getting warmer and many people are looking forward to hosting Memorial Day celebrations to kick off the unofficial start of summer!
If you’re working to get your yard spiffed up in time to welcome guests, you’re probably busy pulling weeds, mowing down winter growth, washing your patio, or maybe even painting a fence or two. Once the major chores are over with, we highly recommend using outdoor LED string lights to make sure your guests can enjoy the warm weather even after the sun goes down!
We’ve already talked about the reasons outdoor LED string lights are the perfect choice for homeowners who want quality lighting that won’t drive up the energy bills. Now let’s take a look at some creative ways these outdoor LED string lights can add beauty to your yard as well.
Faux Fire Pit
There’s nothing better than the warm, dancing light of a fire to ward off the chill of the evening. If you live in an area that doesn’t allow open flames or you just don’t want to deal with the safety risk with lots of guests around, you can use outdoor LED string lights to achieve the same look.
Simply pile up logs in your fire pit as usual, but instead of lighting them on fire, drape outdoor LED string lights around the logs. If you’re pressed for time, our net lights make this even easier. It’ll light up beautifully without an actual flame!
Want an accent piece to light up a back fence or doorway? Grab an undecorated wreath from a craft supply store; then, wind your OptiCore outdoor LED string lights around the wreath until it’s saturated in light. Don’t be afraid to combine colors to accent your party theme!
Potted Plant Displays
Do you have large potted plants in your backyard entertainment area? Cacti, rubber trees, and other accent bushes provide a great vehicle for outdoor string lights. Place them at all four corners of a deck or patio to illuminate the entire space.
No matter what lighting you choose to enhance your party, it will surely be a night everyone remembers forever.
