Outdoor Christmas lights are an easy and affordable way to enhance your Christmas decorations. With some basic knowledge on the different styles and types available, you can safely and beautifully light up the interior and exterior of your home.
Choosing the Right Christmas Lights
With so many different LED Christmas lights on the market, it's important to take some time to learn about the differences. Here's some information on a few of the more popular options.
Mini Christmas Lights:
Most often used for decorating indoors, mini Christmas lights are available in a variety of colors. The small size of the mini Christmas lights make them ideal for adorning windows, smaller Christmas displays, and Christmas wreaths. Mini Christmas lights are typically available in sets of 50 or 100.
Bubble Christmas Lights:
Generally more expensive than other styles, bubble Christmas lights feature a colored, bubbling liquid inside the glass that creates an interesting touch. Considering their expense, most often bubble Christmas lights are used for decorating interiors.
Novelty Christmas Lights:
This category of Christmas lights includes ones that are shaped as snowflakes, globes, pinecones, and even icicles. Depending on their detail and shape, novelty Christmas lights can cost as little as $20 for a set of 70 or as much as $10 for a set of 20.
Battery-Operated Christmas Lights:
Suitable for indoor and outdoor use, battery-operated Christmas lights are a popular choice because of their convenience. Operating off of common battery sizes, battery operated Christmas lights are the perfect solution when an outlet isn't available.
In addition to style, there are few other factors to consider.
Most styles are offered in a variety of colors as well as clear Christmas lights. White Christmas light string cords are often available or green Christmas light string cords, which may be something else to consider.
- Number of Christmas lights:
The number of Christmas lights in the set should also be taken into consideration. This may help you make the most economic choice.
Some white Christmas lights are designed to be blinking Christmas lights. If this is important to you, be sure to check for these features.
