#ad DIY Haunted LED Tombstones and review of #rtgsproducts LED Lights




Disclosure: I reviewed this set of lights, along with 5 other sets of lights in other colors from the same seller. I received them free, but all thoughts and opinions are my own. No monetary compensation was received.

All sets comes with 2 strand of lights and included the necessary batteries. Each strand is 3 feet long so you will have a total of 6 feet to decorate with.




In this one you can see the picture of the super bright cold white lights on the right. I though the brightness of this white helped add to the eeriness of a styrofoam tombstone that says R.I.P. from Dollar Tree.

On the left you can see what the blue lights look like against the Tricks or Treats styrofoam tombstone. I just taped them using clear packing tape to these Dollar Tree Decorations. Because they are LED they are cool to the touch and I don't have to worry about it melting the tape or styrofoam.

The center tombstone decoration has the green led lights on them. I think this color green is just perfect for Halloween. The 3 foot length wraps around these Dollar Tree tombstones a full perimeter and about another 8 inches or so. I only needed to use one of these of this project so I think I will use the second set for Christmas.

Other colors:



I haven't made my decorations yet, but my plan is to use one of these red sets to circle a Christmas wreath to give it lights. The place where my wreath hangs on my porch is no very accessible to electricity, so a battery operated set of lights is a must. Plus I think 6 feet total with allow me to circle the wreath a couple times.

I am holding on to the pink led lights until my daughter's birthday and tying tulle on these to make them reflect and glow even more for her very girlie birthday party. Because they are battery operated they will be easy to put anywhere I want this type of decoration.

This strand of warm white lights I plan to let my husband use when he goes ice fishing in his portable tent to help brighten it up. He doesn't have electricity and not a lot of space, so they will be perfect for it. These give off a warm bright glow.

I don't do much when it comes to Halloween decorations for outside. I normally just decorate inside, but this would be a great and easy way to add a little touch of Halloween decoration outside. Thanks for sharing!
