It’s no secret that one of the most exciting elements of the Halloween season is the wide assortment of decor choices. While interior adornments get to be enjoyed by the members of a household, outdoor ornamentation is appreciated by all, and this includes the lighting that puts those embellishments on display. If you didn’t have plans to illuminate your garden for October 31st shenanigans, here are “x” Halloween lighting ideas to consider when looking to create a spooky atmosphere.
Use flood lights to cast some shadows
Directional lights, also known as flood lights, are full-bodied fixtures that offer a striking display of illumination. This is an awesome feature for highlighting some of the spooky items sitting in your garden, along your driveway, or on your porch. Depending on how you position your flood lights, they can offer a bright spotlight when pointed in front of props. However, if you’d rather position it behind the decor, you can achieve a haunting shadow effect. You can also install these fixtures to sit on a dead branch and when combined with a white sheet, uplights the spooky twists and turns with a ghostly effect.
Make a boiling witches’ cauldron
Bewitching lighting can include the addition of some special effects. For example, if you decide to put a black cauldron on display, be sure to place some LED light bulbs at the bottom to enhance all things creepy. Once the cauldron is bold and bright, add a mister to create some smoke.
Don’t forget the path lights
While path lighting isn’t exactly spooky, it does illuminate the ground so that people can see where they are walking. Not only does this make it easier for the trick-or-treaters and their parents but it also prevents anyone from tripping over any decorations or cords.
