Decorating with lights is a wonderful way to brighten your décor.  Freshen up that dreary, wintery décor with some fresh, bright lighting.  We found some wonderful ways to use rope light to do just that.  Now that we carry rope light in shorter lengths, it’s simple to get exactly the amount you need for these small, DIY projects, and save the larger rolls of rope light for the big projects like lighting your walkway or your deck.

We’ll start inside with a wonderful way to create a dramatic effect on an accent wall.  Using rope light in your color choice, write some inspiration on the wall.  ‘Dream’, or ‘Imagine’, or your surname would be fabulous on the wall in your living room or any bedroom.  All you have to do is choose your color and secure the rope light to the wall with some liquid silicone or guerilla glue found at your local craft store.


Since it’s getting warmer outside, of course we have a wonderful idea to bring spring to your deck or porch as well.  You can spruce up your lawn furniture, namely your umbrella, using rope light.  By simply securing the rope light to the frame underneath the umbrella, you can create an illuminating effect on your porch or deck.  Choose the color that best suits the atmosphere you wish to create and let the magic begin.  These would be fairly simple to change colors, creating different themes to match the seasons or events, like a graduation party, birthday party, or in support of your favorite sports team.

How do you use our rope light?  Have you decorated for spring?  Or used rope light to decorate for a special occasion?  We would love to hear from you, and share your story if you would allow us.  We can all learn from each other, so we would love to share your decorating wisdom!  Send us an email at [email protected].
