Halloween Lighting Ideas for Your Home and Garden
Halloween is now just weeks away, which means pumpkins, costumes, trick or treaters and an ever increasing trend is to have your home illuminated with some spooky Halloween lighting. This can genuinely add some real eerie atmosphere to the seasonal occasion on the 31st of October.
With that in mind, we bring you some Halloween lighting ideas to turn your home into a haunted house, please consider these additions to your Halloween decorations.
Add some LED candles
We can't think of anything that says haunted house, than some well-placed, flickering candles. If you're worried about knocking real candles over, you can buy flameless LED candles, which can flicker just like the real thing.
Create the right atmosphere with warm white lights
A dim, warm white glow from your lights can create the right atmosphere, especially when used with some carefully chosen Halloween decorations, they don't have to be coloured to create a spooky effect.
Use your existing solar garden lights
If you have your solar garden lights from Summer, why not dress them with some fake cobwebs and they will resemble something straight out of a haunted mansion or creepy graveyard.
Illuminate your carved pumpkin
No Halloween lighting is more traditional than the good old carved pumpkin or Jack O' Lantern depending on where you hail from. If you place a tea light or LED candle on the inside of the pumpkin and replace the lid, it will exude a traditional eerie glow this Halloween season.
Put a Halloween LED projector in your garden
If you really want to create the ultimate spooky feel to the outside of your home, why not invest in a Halloween Projector which can project a ton of ghostly images on the exterior of your home, so everyone passing can by can see your house lit up with ghoulish Halloween characters.
Use some coloured LED strip lights
LED strips can make the perfect Halloween lighting when used in the correct way. Turn your house front door into a mysterious portal by fixing strip lights around the frame, or run them along skirting boards to cast a ghostly glow across the floor.
Place ultraviolet bulbs in a room to create a real Halloween glow
The purple glow of Ultraviolet bulbs can turn the most inviting room into something out of a haunted house. Take advantage of their glow-in-the-dark properties by filling rooms with plenty of white decorations: skulls, skeletons and ghosts will shine under the ultraviolet light that these bulbs emit.
