As you can use strip lights anywhere in the home, why not turn your front door into a spooky portal, or highlight your tv stand? The possibilities are endless. If you’re looking for great halloween light decoration ideas, this should be your first choice.

Colour Changing Bulbs
An easier option for this is to use colour changing bulbs in place of your current ones. This is a great choice for if you’re hosting a Halloween party and instantly want to upgrade your lighting. You can opt for a red glow if you wish or go for something a bit more sinister.
Opt for flicker bulbs
If you already own a chandelier, you can switch the current bulbs for flickering ones! This will give you the feel of a haunted house without breaking the bank (or burning the house down). And, once Halloween is over, you can simply change the bulbs back.
In the UK, the weather around Halloween can be unreliable. If, on the night, you find that the weather is wet and windy, why not use solar-powered lanterns and Jack-o-lanterns instead of candles? They can last all night and are robust in wet and windy conditions. Paired with fake cobwebs, they make a spooktacular addition to any Halloween decorations.
Once a staple of 90s rave culture, ultraviolet light bulbs are used for their glow in the dark effect. This makes them a great Halloween light decoration idea. When placed in a dark room, these bulbs can make white objects appear uncanny. So, throw some skeletons or ghost decor under one of these bulbs and watch the magic happen. Please note: a real UV bulb is not appropriate or safe to use as a decoration. When shopping, ensure you purchase a blacklight blue light bulb.
Use warm white lighting for atmosphere
Whether in the form of fairy lights or festoon lighting, warm white lighting brings a great atmosphere no matter your Halloween plans. If you’re hosting a movie night, why not set the scene with a makeshift pillow fort and warm white fairy lights?
