It’s no secret that I love Halloween…and I especially love doing up my yard with Halloween lights.

And there’s no missing my house on the block. I definitely don’t subscribe to the “less is more” school of Halloween decorating (not that I really belong to that school much anyhow).

Lots of Halloween lighting

It’s been a couple of years since I wrote my first Halloween Lighting post (and I still use all of those lighting ideas in my Halloween yard decor). However, since then Halloween decorating seems to have taken on a life of its own.

There are some new Halloween lighting options which I (of course) had to try! And every year I learn a few more lighting tricks to help make my yard look spooky.

So I thought I would do an update that includes the new things I’ve done.

    • Hi Brie…I use 7 of the flood lights for my front yard…2 at the front, 2 at the sides and 3 to uplight bushes, tombstones or other Halloween decor. But it will depend on how big of a space you are trying to light. My Halloween display area is about 15′ x 25′ if that helps.

  • Hi Wanda – Thank you so much! Appreciate your insight. I love your display and have been inspired to focus on the outside of my house this year. All the best! Brie

  • Love, love, love Halloween! I even went as far as marrying a guy whose birthday is Halloween!HA!HA! I have accumulated quite a bit of Halloween “stuff” in the past few years and usually start decorating around the middle of September. I really like all the new battery operated, automatic shut-off lighting and solar lighting. I don’t do the gory stuff that’s out there…that’s not my idea of Halloween. Witches, ghosts, bats, cats, etc. is my theme. I usually buy a few new things each year. When I saw your lighting effects and the spotlights that you used, I immediately went to Amazon and bought 3 of them. 🙂 This year I want to create a haunted “photo booth” in my garage…that should be fun. We live in the country, so we always have a bonfire/weeny roast and I have a walk out basement; soooo, I “spook” it up. Thanks for the idea with the spotlights…Halloween lovers unite.:)

    • That’s awesome, Pat! Your Halloween display sounds fabulous! I also love all of the new Halloween gadgets that come out every year, and can’t help buying a few even though I already have a shed full of them. And I’m with you on leaving out the gory props…I just do the spooky ones 🙂 Have a great Halloween haunt!!

  • Can you tell me what color those flamingos are before being lit. I have some black ones I collected but then was disappointed in how they looked. What color lighting would I use to make them look like yours?

    • Hi Susan…my flamingos are mostly gray with some black markings on them. I lit them with a blue spot light, but I think the gray reflects the light better than black would. You could try painting yours a lighter color and see if that would help make them stand out more.

  • Hi Wanda,

    Your Halloween Decor is absolutely amazing! I love Halloween Decor and you definitely speak to my soul with your creations. Do you offer services to decorate events?

    Thank you for sharing!

    • Thanks, Jorge! I am always happy to hear from a fellow Halloween lover! I am not offering any event decorating services at this time. Sorry!
