Fall is in the air and Halloween is quickly approaching. As you prepare for this spooky night, you may be looking for ways to lure little trick or treaters into your yard. Making your home appealing to everyone out on Halloween is easy with the help of the right kind of lights. Burley Electrical Services is here to share some lighting tips to keep your house one of the spookiest on the block this Halloween season!
Create Spooky Shadows with Your Yard Lighting
You may already have several items in your yard to make it festive, but as the sun goes down and the moon starts to shine, you can use those objects to create a spookier atmosphere with long, eerie shadows. Place lights low to the ground by your decorations at an angle. This angle paired with low lights will cast these shadows on your home to create the perfect Halloween house. Another option is covering flood lights with cutouts that create shaped shadows wherever you point the lights.
Light Bulbs that Flicker Like a Flame
Add an inviting flare to your yard with lights that mimic flames. You can purchase flickering lights that will mimic candle flames and create a haunting atmosphere. In carved pumpkins, you can place an LED flickering candle to avoid a fire hazard and still have a flickering candlelight inside to reveal the jack-o-lantern’s grin. These flickering lights will look as if they are dancing along the front of your house if you place them just right.
Choose the Right Color Lights
You would be surprised to see how many lights there are to choose from in the Halloween décor. They come in all shapes and sizes. Some of the best colors to choose for a spooky Halloween yard are purple, black and dark blue. Black lights give a classic Halloween flare. You can place black lights in all of your porch lighting for a frightful luminary. Dark blue lights cast a mystical feeling around your yard as they mimic dark nights and moonlight. These colors are the perfect addition to your graveyard displays.
LED Projector for Holiday Lighting
Investing in an LED projector can take your Halloween décor to a whole new level. You can use it to project your favorite Halloween thriller on your garage door, several visual effects as well as noises for all those that dare to approach your door.
