We all use LEDs every day in our televisions, computers and mobiles. In recent years, LED use has become much more frequent. This is because LEDs are much more efficient, cost less and cause less waste. As they lessen the pressure on the environment, LEDs make much more sense in almost any application. They need replacing far less often but when they do you could consider checking out this range from Light Rabbit, they switch on instantly and they can be reused time and again.
This Christmas, consider using LED lights in your festive display. Whether you are decorating your own home or a setting up a venue for a Christmas event, LEDs are the cost effective and environmentally friendly option you need. There are so many ways to use these versatile lights – below are some suggestions to light up your Christmas.
Icicle lights on windows and porches
Drape strings of blue or white icicle lights across the tops of windows and above doors for a great winter effect that works both indoors and outdoors.
Twinkling tree lights with traditional Christmas style
No Christmas tree is complete without a set of multi-function lights. The sparkling and shining brings out the best in the tinsel and baubles, and they can be used in combination to create exciting effects.
Fireside wreath strings light up the hearth
Use real branches for the best effect, though artificial boas will look the part too. Wrap battery powered LED lights around the greenery and attach them securely under the mantelpiece – or drape them along a staircase.
Create a grotto archway with bamboo and lights
Bendy bamboo canes, clips and outdoor LED lights are all you need to make a simple archway structure to surround a doorway. Extend it all the way to your front door and guests can walk through a magical Christmas tunnel.
Stars and snowflakes illuminate your windows
LED ornaments in festive shapes look excellent when hung in windows, and can form part of a stunning window display.
Combine lights with baubles for a minimalist look
Glass baubles containing LED lights combine two decorations in one and make putting the tree up much simpler. Individual bauble lights are great for people who hate untangling strings of tree lights every year.
Branches and twigs make a simple, rustic potted tree
Use driftwood, twigs or other interesting pieces of wood to create a potted display, and wrap LED lights around the twigs. This is a cheap and effective way to light up a hallway, and gives a simple festive touch to any home.
Light up the stairs on Christmas morning
Use LED nightlights or coloured push lights to create a magical light-up staircase that little ones will love rushing down.
LED candles are a safe and beautiful alternative
Christmas candles look fantastic, but are not always practical. For the same look with none of the risk, consider picking up some LED candles.
