Halloween Lights - Types of Lighting

Solar Pumpkin Light

String lights- Like Christmas lights, string lighting is popular for decorating. Halloween light colors are orange and purple. Other colors don’t fit the atmosphere, or set the mood.

Solar Lights- They’re increasingly popular Halloween lighting. No wiring. Place them anywhere. Move them around  with ease. They use rechargeable batteries. We’ve found pumpkins, skulls, and graveyard scenes.

Black Lights- Adapted perhaps, from other uses in  the sixties and seventies, Blacklights have found the perfect Halloween home….yours.

Strobe Lights- Creates the illusion of lightning. Strobe lights are popular at many haunted houses and parties. There are strobe lights for placing inside of pumpkins, too. It creates a great effect.  


Novelty Lights- These lights look good in a variety of places, including fireplace mantles, outdoor shrubs(make sure its for outdoor use), dorm rooms, and entryways. Kids like these and they tend not to be as scary. Try them at your kid’s Halloween party.!


Lighted Spider Webs- They help to create a spooky scene, yet not too spooky for younger kids. And, they fit just about anywhere.
