Here are some things to consider when planning your outdoor Halloween light display.
Use the Right Lights
Check the product specifications for display and make sure your lights are marked safe for outdoor use. Exercise caution when setting up your lights, being careful not to overload your power sources. Consider LEDs, battery-operated pre-lit décor, or solar lights as more energy-efficient options.
Embrace the Subtlety of Silhouettes
The balance between light and shadow is what makes Halloween lighted displays so alluring. Put this into practice with silhouette décor cast against your home’s façade or garage doors. This is a novel way to use lights in your outdoor decorations.
Try Layering Your Lights
Create nuance with varying degrees of brightness. Play around with the flickering effects of flameless LED candles juxtaposed against brighter lighted décor. Move your pieces around or adjust their brightness when you test your display at night. This creates spooky mood lighting instead of an overwhelming glare.
