Get this Look! Red and white smooth LED bulbs

December 4, 2020

Thanks, Brian, for sharing this photo of your project and your comments as well!

Just wanted to thank you for all of your help. The bulbs were exactly what we were looking for and are actually brighter than the other incandescent bulbs being used on houses on our block. I had nothing to worry about in regards to brightness. Talking to a neighbor they actually had no idea they were LED.

Attached is a picture. We have a streetlight right in front of our house which effects the look but the brightness of the bulbs counteract it.

They are on GFCI and I will work on getting a surge inline.

Thanks again.

Brian

See our blog with handy tips on measuring a house like this for an installation.

Be sure to plug your LED lights into a surge protector.  That’s in addition to GFCI when located out of doors.

Be sure to share your project photos in the comments below!  We’d want to see them!!

    1. Hello Ryan,

      We provided the lights and cords used in this photo but did not install them.

      Installing lights around garage doors and windows is a challenge and the best method to use is highly dependent on the trim material.

      We have seen customers use Quick Klips. There is just one little nail used to install the clip and they work for string lights or C7/C9 bulbs and cords.

      These are here: Quick Klips

      For small mini lights strings, folks use mini light adhesive clips. Just test on a surface to make sure it’s safe for the finish. Those are found here: mini lights adhesive clips

      Other innovative installation methods have included: electric tape spaced often enough to carry the weight of the light string, hot glue, staple gun (we don’t support this method because of the risk to damaging the wirin), small finishing nails, etc.

      As I mentioned above, be sure to test any installation method on an out of the way place to make sure it doesn’t pull off the paint or damage a stained finish.

      Hope these ideas help. Good luck with your project!!

  1. Just to be clear, Once Ordered do I have to assemble them myself? I’ve never done it that way, so wasn’t sure? I love the way it looks…

    1. Yes, that’s exactly how it works. It allows you to mix and match bulb styles and colors in any variety you’d like.

      Hope that helps, let us now if you have more questions. (And a quick 1/4 turn counter clockwise before you install a light bulb clockwise, helps prevent cross-threading.)
