There is  vast selection in string lighting – something for every budget and any decorating idea. Once you’ve chosen the string lights that fit your theme, you can add them abundantly all around the exterior of your home. Contour porches, wrap trees and shrubs, suspend them around windows, string them through step railings – there’s truly no end to the spots that would benefit from string lighting.

You can even get solar string (rope) lights that will not affect your electric bill whatsoever! They’ll faithfully serve you year after year without draining your pocket.

They will collect energy from sun during the day and automatically light up your Halloween decor at night.  They can be used anywhere where conventional rope lights would go, or use them in some tricky places where you don’t have an electric outlet. Solar string lights can be also coiled up inside your carved pumpkins.

Solar string/rope lights can be used for your interior as well, just make sure your solar panel is close to a sunny source (window, etc.) They make quite a statement when used in tabletop centerpieces or a big vase wrapped around some branches in a room corner. The great thing about using them for inside decor is that you don’t have to keep them close to an electric outlet.
