Whether it's Christmas Eve in Texas or a cool summer night in Tennessee, nothing sets the mood quite like outdoor string lights. The calming ambience of outdoor lighting helps you unwind in the evenings, especially when you've had a day and are ready to kick off your boots with whiskey in hand. These outdoor patio string lights are the perfect accent for every outdoor living space.
They're larger than your average white twinkle lights, and easy to replace when necessary. I prefer the look of larger light bulbs to the smaller twinkle lights you normally find in solar LED string light sets. Incandescent bulbs just make these globe lights pop. The Edison bulbs have that industrial look that is chic in outdoor home decor.
You don't have to have a big backyard to use them either. You could simply hang them from an apartment balcony, or add some extra lighting to a cozy reading nook in your living room. Who needs LED string lights or fairy string lights when you can have mood lighting that makes a statement? The 11-watt bulbs are easy to find in packs in your local hardware store or Walmart.
Even though most would use them as patio lights, these globe string lights would be amazing inside for your foyer during the holiday season or strung above the mantel to light Santa's way around the Christmas tree. Who said Christmas lights had to be dainty? There isn't a single living space in your home that wouldn't look amazing lit up by these clear bulbs.
This product is a 2-pack of 48-foot string lights, designed for indoors or outdoor use. The commercial grade casing should protect these ball string lights no matter the weather if you're taking them outside. I don't know about you, but white wire on lantern string lights is a huge pet peeve of mine, so I'm glad that the casing is dark enough to blend in.
Most fairy lights come in strands of 10ct, but this 2-pack light string features 15 bulbs on each cable. The warm white look of the bulbs, especially, provides just the right amount of glow. If solar string lights are out of your budget, this 2-pack is the next best bet. Their power type is outlet-based. For more outdoor decor, consider color changing LED lights.
For something you won't have to worry about plugging in, these solar powered garden stakes are affordable and easy to decorate with. Perfect for around the patio or to illuminate your sidewalk!
