Go Green With Halloween Solar Lights and Decorations

Updated on October 15, 2013

Halloween Solar Powered Lights - Earth-friendly and easy to use!

Outdoor solar lights for Halloween are convenient, easy to use and earth-friendly.

Light up your home and garden without being concerned about extension cords, over-crowded outlets or remote power-sources. You no longer need to worry about tripping over extension cords or keeping lights and decorations close to a power outlet. Now you can decorate in even the most remote locations. Solar lights use photovoltaic cells to charge the batteries that power the LED lights after the sun goes down. The lights include a sensor that automatically turns the lights on after dark.

The only important thing to remember is that the photovoltaic cell must be placed in the sunlight for at least 6 hours each day to charge the batteries to power the light. Some lights have a separate solar panel that may be placed in the sun a few feet from the lights and with others the panel and light are combined.

For the lights that have the solar panel and light combined, you can place the light in the sun during the day to absorb the sunlight and move them to another area after the batteries have recharged. Solar lighting is often not as bright as traditional lights which creates the perfect spooky atmosphere for Halloween. On this page I have included some of my favorite Halloween solar lights.

Solar Halloween Pumpkin Light - Welcome Your Halloween Trick-or-Treaters

I like to welcome guests and trick-or-treaters with this three-tiered solar-powered pumpkin. They resemble Japanese paper lanterns and look great hanging in an entry, under a porch or from a tree.

The sun charges the battery during daytime, which powers the lights in the lantern after dark.

Create a Creepy Cemetery with Solar Lighted Decorations - Tombstones, Hands and Skulls and Rocks that Light Up!

I like using these tombstones, skulls and skeletons to make a haunted cemetery in my front yard. The solar powered lights give it just the right creepy touch and it is especially helpful to have decorations that do not need extension cords.

Solar Tiki Torches - Scary Tropical Faces

Normally everyone associates Tiki lights with summer outdoor lighting, but these aren't your normal tiki torches. These faces look pretty creepy with wild eyes and broad grins that light up at dusk.

These scary Tikis have flickering lights and inlcude a pole for mounting in the ground as a path light or can also be hung from a tree or set on a fence post or table..

 

Solar Powered Gargoyle Light

Creepy glowing eyes!

This creepy looking gargoyle faux stone statue has eyes that glow with an eerie light! Great for Halloween or a gothic look garden year round. On/off switch in base; solar panels on sides of base. Made from Polyresin. One rechargeable AA battery included. 6 1/.2 inches wide x 10 inches tall

Glass Solar String Lights - Beautiful hand crafted glass globes

Although not specifically sold as Halloween decorations, these string lights with hand crafted glass globes made a beautiful seasonal display and can be used during the rest of the year, too.

Crystal Balls to Illuminate - Great with a Halloween Witch or Wizard theme!

I like using these clear glass globes to accent a witch or wizard theme. These solar string lights look like crystal balls. They cast a little brighter light that still works well with a Halloween theme.

Solar Owl Lights - Light up the Night with an Owl!

This owl can be added to a haunted cemetery or if you are looking for decorations that are less frightening, but still have a Halloween theme, this solar owl light is a real HOOT!

It is a great addition to your Halloween lighting and can be used year round. During the day they enhance any setting and by night, the solar-powered glow adds the perfect ambiance. They can help light walkways and other outdoor features.

More Halloween Solar String Lights - Pumpkins, Skulls and Orange String Lights

I use these solar string lights around my porch and entry. I wrap the orange lights around the railing and like to hang the pumpkins and skulls from the eaves.

Have you tried using solar powered Halloween Lights?

The demand for new energy sources has increased the number of solar lighting options. There are now unique styles and designs of solar lights available for many different lighting situations.
