for Christmas ... the majority of our lights are LED... high initial cost but saves money in the long run

Some of mine are, but most aren't. I wanted to see how durable they were before investing in them.

We bought some when they were on clearance. I think they are still in the boxes.
We didn't put up lights the next year.

ok here is how to make a raised spot light fixture (a new addition to the light show this year.. it will light up our big guys singing on the line above the lawn)
lamp cord Thumb of 2010-10-04/Onewish1/78a59c
standard lamp socket Thumb of 2010-10-04/Onewish1/c9c126
strip the casing Thumb of 2010-10-04/Onewish1/afb2cc
attach to socket Thumb of 2010-10-04/Onewish1/d48a51
tape each connection first with electrical tape and then the whole shebang Thumb of 2010-10-04/Onewish1/1cc7b6
lamp cord plug (found at lowes) Thumb of 2010-10-04/Onewish1/41a4d0
the metal prong pulls out to attach wires Thumb of 2010-10-04/Onewish1/d5d63e
strip back the other end of the wire and attach to the screws and tape tape tape as before
pvc flange from the toilet section (drill a hole in the top section of the flange to let water out) Thumb of 2010-10-04/Onewish1/92e562
we brought the bulb with us to make sure it had the fit we wanted Thumb of 2010-10-04/Onewish1/474f55
attach the bulb to socket Thumb of 2010-10-04/Onewish1/79f2df
thread the cord through the flange Thumb of 2010-10-04/Onewish1/7ae5f9
pull the bulb snug Thumb of 2010-10-04/Onewish1/0319e8
run a bead of hot glue to waterproof Thumb of 2010-10-04/Onewish1/f894c7
thread the cord into pvc pipe and attach the flange (can hot glue under if you wish) Thumb of 2010-10-04/Onewish1/ccb279
attach several skulls with lights up pole to make it look cool... and will dance with the music will show you how we did those later

This is pretty cool Allison. At least you can get this kind of stuff done inside when it is raining. Thanks for showing it to us. I tip my hat to you.

no problem.. that setup has endless possibilities .. we like the outlet plugs from lowes the best... they are rubber and seal tightly.. even though Randy will tape each and every single plug once it's connected to make sure water does not get in ... we get the bulk pack of electrical tape for both holidays... I say every year when we tear down ... wish we could reuse it for something .. but it is worth taking the time and doing rather than trying to fix something that shorted out.. on the big days

Those shorts can drive you crazy. My brother in law used to act like a madman on rainy days. Hilarious!

Pics worked for me in that link.


Yep, kinda like the same thing...I was so busy looking at the casket(oh and of course looking where I was going) didn't notice if there was a horse attached to it.

WOW Allison, thank you!!!! It took me a couple of days to make my way back to this thread but the tombstone videos are giving me all kinds of ideas! Thumbs up I'm off to check out Drylock paint, etc. and I'm thinking a Dremel tool should be on my Christmas list! Big Grin

Well, I drug all of the boxes of Halloween stuff out of the crawl space. They are now cluttering up the already cluttered garage. I did unpack two and put the stuff on my hearth. Funny, I haven't come across the cinnamon broom yet.
