With so many types of lights that you can decorate your home with for the holidays, it’s easy to get caught up and frustrated when trying to purchase just the right ones. When making the decision to buy icicle lights for your home, decide what kind of look you want to go for. Blue? White? Few lights? Many lights? Also knowing where you are going to place them can play an important role in deciding which type to purchase. For hanging from the porch, white lights with many hanging icicles can create extra lighting in the entry to your home. Hanging them from the house (around gutters, trim, or windows), you can use few icicles that are white to create a soft glowing look. If you are hanging around bushes, blue icicle lights are the way to go, especially in areas that receive quite a bit of snow. There’s nothing quite like the look of a glowing blue peeking out from a white blanket of snow on a bush. This guide will go down the list of a few different types of icicle lights, with important information on strands, type, price, and places to buy them.
