Let your creative imagination soar when you use rope lights as part of your holiday home décor designs. Just as the name implies, each lighting kit features a rope wire dotted with mini lights protected by sturdy clear plastic, and it’s wrapped around a reel that easily unwinds. Bulb colors range from classic warm white to pink, and lights can be used indoors and outdoors for excellent versatility.
Keep one or more reels of incandescent rope lights among your collection of decorative lighting accessories for those times when a cool idea pops into your head. Lighted rope can be quickly maneuvered into all sorts of geometric shapes, or fun shapes such as gingerbread houses, sleighs and Christmas trees. You can even use these fun lights to create lighted words on the wall such as Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Use clips and fasteners to secure rope shapes to surfaces, and then step back and enjoy the warm glow from each rope creation.
Brighten Doors and Windows
Accentuate the doors and windows of your home with rope light placed around the edges. It’s easy to form a square or rectangle shape by slowly unspooling the rope as you go up, across and down the sides, clipping when you reach the end of one section. As darkness falls, those geometric outlines glow brightly, and you can use colorful incandescent light strings to create Christmas-themed shapes on those same doors and windows.
Light a Walkway
Create lighted walkways to your home and on your property using BulbAmerica rope lights. Measure your walkway and then lay down the rope between the edge of the walking path and lawn. If you have a driveway, light that up too. Lighted paths look especially nice with lighted houses.
Highlight Decks and Porches
Give your deck and porch areas a dash of decorative sophistication with rope lights. One method is to line the upper portion of railings with a single layer of light rope. Include the banisters as well to extend light to stairs. By itself, this level of light produces gentle illumination that allows you to see faces without straining eyes in the dark.
