How Can I Use LED Lights in My Seasonal Fall Decor?

When we decorate for fall, we think about embers of light warming those chilly nights slowly sweeping across Texas. But what is the greenest way to illuminate our paths on these cool autumn nights? With LED lights, of course.

Get creative with our seven ideas for incorporating LED lights into your seasonal fall decor. Not only will your lights burn longer, they’ll use less energy and less electricity as a whole.

1) Hanging Paper Jack-O-Lantern

Paper lanterns with LED lights are a super-versatile fall decorations.

A fun way to bring a fall glow into your home is by investing in round paper lanterns and lighting them with LED light bulbs. But instead of purchasing the typical white ones, consider buying an orange one. Using black card stock, cut out shapes as if you were creating a jack-o-lantern, and stick them on one side of the lantern. You now have a glowing pumpkin that won’t rot or burn out!

2) LED Lanterns

Forget about wax tea lights. They burn out so quickly that it’s difficult to get two burn sessions from one. Instead, invest in a bundle of LED tea lights. The technology have progressed from when they first came on the market, so they actually resemble a real flame of fire. And their lifespan is long enough to burn all season without needing replacement.

3) Twinkly Lights

Invest in a good strand or two of LED lights for use in your decor across the seasons.

Use strands of LED lights to brighten your table decor, to trim your doors, or to drape around the collection of pumpkins festooning your door stoop. If you’re able to find orange colored strand lights that would be ideal, but using white lights would extend their usefulness into other seasons and purposes.

4) Light Your Path

LED lights are perfect for bushes and grass because they don’t emit lots of heat, reducing the chance of harming or burning your foliage dramatically.

Between Halloween and holiday parties throughout the rest of the year, lost of folks will be walking up to your front door. Light their path in a magical way using strands of LED lights nestled into the bushes or set along the grass.

5) Mason Jars

Another versatile decorating idea, all you need to do each new holiday is change the color of the paper you place inside the jar.

If you’re even remotely like me, you keep stray mason jars around the home for a variety of crafting and cooking needs. Take a few jars of various sizes, fill them with acorns, fallen leaves, pine cones, and other fall-inspired items, and twist a short strand of LED lights throughout. This will illuminate the jar to look like a small diorama that will fill any nook in your home with the spirit of autumn.

6) Lit Branches

In fact, we’re a fan of this look as year-round decor.

Gather fallen branches that have been stripped of their leaves and arrange them in a tall vase. Branches from Texas natives like burn oaks or live oak trees work wonderfully. Wrap short strands of LED lights around the branches to create an arrangement that will illuminate any corner of your home.

7) Illuminated Wreaths

Don’t leave your door wreath in the dark! Purchase a battery-operated strand of LED lights and wind them around your favorite wreath. It will look gorgeous from the street, and lets your neighbors know you’re in the fall spirit!
