DIY Light Up Pumpkin for Halloween Decoration

Everyone’s thinking about the Summer coming to an end.. but Halloween is the only thing on OUR mind! (I guess Octoberfest also…)

FBL is getting ready for one of our FAVORITE Holidays of the year by celebrating the classic tradition: Pumpkin Carving! But with a twist… LIGHTS! How’d you know? Let’s get started.

Step one is to find the perfect pumpkin for you obviously. We wanted to keep our pumpkins for a long time so we bought the craftable plastic pumpkin at the good ol’ Michaels.

Just look at that clean pumpkin; perfect size for the porch, outdoor, table decor and so much more! A quick tip here: Get into the Halloween mood with some Purple LED String lights, our Ghost centerpiece and a few of our LED Candles.

Back to Pumpkin Carving! Just search up any design you’d like online, or get creative and make your own! Just remember to create a big enough hole ( or leave room on the top or bottom ) to fit your light inside.

Now here is where the magic starts! We do have lights you could add into your pumpkin that’s smaller but why not go BIG. Our 2.75″ Deluxe Submersible is the perfect light to add to your pumpkin; just look at the color change! It also comes with a REMOTE so you could adjust your light speed to FAST for that party effect or SLOW for the eerie Halloween night effect. If you’re looking for a solid color, our smaller submersibles are a great replacement!

You only need 1 for your pumpkin! Don’t worry, your pumpkin will shine long and bright with one so share your lights with a pumpkin in need. And that’s it folks! You’re guaranteed to win that 1st place for your next pumpkin carving contest. Happy Halloween!

P.S. Check out our DIY Pumpkin carving video HERE. Happy Crafting! Elly out!

This picture represents what we originally intended for the product. An elegant and fun bike décor that doubles as safety lights – I’m talking about those nighttime riders out there, stay seen. But we never imagined what our creative clients would come up with, turning our standard bike lights into…

A light decor for your skateboard and longboard! S-i-i-i-i-i-i-ck!

What are you waiting for? Grab your board and try it out for yourself!

Follow these three simple steps and be the coolest on the streets.

  1. Grab your Skateboard or a longboard.
  2. Get one or two LED Strip Lights for Bike frame; comes in blue or red.
  3. Pick your spot and use scissors/tape to secure them on. (For a permanent fixture, use a hot glue gun. Just make sure the battery housing is facing outward for easy battery replacement.)

And ta-da!

Stay safe and don’t forget a helmet! Happy cruising! ELLY OUT.

Our 10 Best Selling Reception Decor

Hey, Elly here.

It’s only Spring but I feel like I’ve been to at least 10 wedding ceremonies and receptions. Each one unique with different themes, color palette, and vibes and although they all shared different attributes, they all had one thing in common: LIGHTS!

It’s definitely hard planning an event, especially one as important as a wedding reception. But like I always say, FBL is here to make your night one of your most treasured memories.

So I got inspired, looked through our database, and found FBLs’ top 10 best-selling reception decoration of 2018! If you are struggling with your décor, look no further!

Number 10! Don’t let the picture fool you, this marquee box comes with over 80+ letters and symbols to write personalized messages for the world to see. It’s a classic and, simultaneously, a new-age way to say  ‘Congratulations’, ‘I love you’ or ‘Happy birthday’. The possibilities are endless.

Number 9! These floating LED roses are the most magical flowers you’ve seen. Flowers are a must for weddings and bridal showers so why not get something that will last?

Number 8! If you’re like me and LOVE to arts and craft, then this is the perfect product for you. With an array of different colors to choose from, you can let your creativity run wild. Whatever you decide to make, it’ll be a meaningful and personal touch to your event.

Number 7! One of my favorite things about receptions is the afterparty. What better way to get one started than with our light projector? Turn any empty room into a dance party that everyone can enjoy.

Number 6! Have you ever wanted to change the lights to fit the mood when that one song comes on, or halfway through that emotional speech you are pouring your heart into? Yeah, me too.

It’s possible with our remote LED submersible! Keep your guests entertained and never let your centerpieces be boring again.

Number 5! Recycling has never been better! The cork shaped battery pack fits in most bottles for an easy DIY. Don’t lie, we know you’ll have plenty of empty bottles. *wink wink*

Number 4! If you are feeling chic, modern and want something that screams new-age, then think LED Cubes! With multicolor changing or steady lighting, these are great for any color scheme or theme.

Number 3! Because what’s cooler than a square? A circle! So throw a ball… just not this one. Our mid-size Deco Balls are the perfect size for the center of reception tables, plus dress it up by surrounding with flowers or other festive decors – get creative with it!

Number 2! You can’t judge til you’ve seen them in action! The disco ball sets the perfect groovy vibe that will keep your guests getting funky with it all night long.

Number 1! Our most searched product for reception is.. you guessed it, Light up centerpieces! It’s the perfect finishing touch to your table for your perfect night, it’s no wonder that they’re number 1 on our reception decor.

We know how stressful planning an event could be, but it’s all worth it when you see those happy faces of friends, family, and loved ones. If none of the products above float your boat then feel free to check out our 100+ reception decor products HERE.

Happy planning! ELLY OUT.

4th of July Decor DIY

Hello Crafters! Elly here.

It’s 4th of July, guests are on their way and you don’t have that epic entrance to wow them. What do you do? Introducing..

You’re probably wondering, “how on earth will I EVER do that?” Well, I’m here to tell you that it’s really not as complicated as it seems.

Things that you need: 4th of July leis 12159-RWB + LED String lights 11950-WT and the usual DIY kit: scissors and glue.

  

Step 1.

You have to cut and wrap the leis around the String lights. Make sure the ends of the leis are secured so that the flowers don’t fall off! They should look something like this:

Beauty! At first, we wanted to decorate the table but realized it’d make a beautiful backdrop + entryway for all our guests! We simply taped the string lights around the door and ta-da! spontaneity at its finest.

Not done yet! With all the leftover leis, we decided to tape them up on the top of the door frame to create a beautiful drop for the entry. Looks something like this…

 

It doesn’t only make a great entryway for your guests but an awesome photo wall! Got two birds with one stone! Check out a few of our test shots below!

  

Check out how to make the other wall HERE. Love to see some of YOUR creative ideas! Tag us at @Flashingblinkylights to show us YOUR creations!

Happy 4th of July! ELLY OUT.

Light Up Your Summer Crafts With FBLs!

Aloha, crafters.  With warmer weather comes Summer Crafts.  Adding FBL lights to summer crafts makes for super cool party decor, whether having a couple friends over for a chill patio hang, or a bunch of party animals over for a night swim and dance party.  As one enters said party, imagine being greeted by THIS groovy front door wreath:wreath_front3

Neat-o, huh.  Summer Crafts done with paper cocktail umbrellas are my favorite.  Love that tiki retro vibe, plus with LED lights now readily available & for cheap, it’s a magical match I tell you.  Here are the essential ingredients for your own summer crafts:

  1. FBL battery powered LED String Lights, naturally.
  2. Many colorful paper cocktail umbrellas.  Find ’em in bulk on Amazon.
  3. 1 styrofoam ring found at craft stores.  A twig wreath could work well too.
  4. 1 hot glue gun + sticks!  Aw, my best friend.  Never leave home without my glue gun.

Start by attaching your bendy wire string lights. White LED String lights are the brightest, they rule.  That battery house is simple to conceal behind the wreath, just hot glue it down.  Next zig zag the wire string along the foam ring, bending it as you wish (spread those lights out evenly!), and add dabs of glue along the way to hold in place.  This completes the “skeleton” of your summer craft wreath.  Just pop open those umbrellas & get to piercing them all over the styrofoam!  Easy, right?

wreath_backCheck out the back. NOT a big deal if the glue gets messy, or if toothpicks poke through.  That’ll be our little secret once it’s hung up & on display.  TIP 4 YOU: should you find yourself with a small wreath, break off half of each toothpick to fit the umbrellas nice & snug. ANOTHER ESSENTIAL TIP: overlap the umbrellas to your heart’s content.  The beauty of this part is you can re-pierce each umbrella if you’re not happy with the placement.  Try & try again!  Ya can’t really “mess up”.

For more tiki inspired fun, take a trip down memory lane & have a look at the LED Pineapple Lamp Lights I made a couple summers ago.  *Ooo* they’re gonna look SO lovely next to my new LED Tiki Wreath.  Mahalo, my friends!  Happy Summer, craft it up.pineapples

Weather’s warmin’ up, the sun’s setting later, and FBL Easter Decorations are a delight on spring nights.  Of course we’ve got those cute lil’ low cost novelties you fill Easter baskets with, but did you know we’ve got large-and-in-charge Light Decor that looks cool all season long?  Prepare for more outdoor hangouts when you party with glowing Easter decorations and “Deco” lights!

easterdecorationsdecoballs

Yes sirree, time to break out the FBL “Deco” products.  They are Easter Decoration perfection, with their smooth white shells and ambient color change lights.  The 3″ perfect circles seen above float in water and look nice planted in grass.  Line a walkway with those babies before a party and watch your guests freak out!  In a great way.  We’ve also got oval shaped “decos” to hide in the garden for an Easter egg hunt at dusk.  Words cannot describe just how much kids looooove an event planned with LED Deco Eggs.  Check out how they accentuate an Easter Basket:

easterdecorationslightupeggsMAGIC.  They sell out every year, so act fast, Easter enthusiasts…

Here’s the queen of all Decos:  our jumbo Glowing Orb of Enchantment, measures 10″ in diameter.  This beauty’s absolutely worth its price because it recharges nightly, so no money spent on batteries, it changes color by remote control, and it floats in pools & ponds once removed from charging dock – just dry it off between uses.

I bought my own rechargeable jumbo Deco Ball when it was new here at FBL, so we’re talkin’ many years ago, and I’m still using it I am proud to say.  We made a great product!  My magical orb lamp brings me a lot of joy at home, and new house guests always “ooo” and “ahh” at it.  Even my grumpy cat enjoys it!  What a sassy sphinx.

Yosh2-Copy

Why yes ^that^ is a true white setting, in addition to the multitudes of rainbow colors I can choose from.  I hear party planners and production coordinators really need that bright white, so we’re pleased to offer it in our recharging Deco Ball.  The customer speaks, and we listen!

donna&nikki

^^^ Also great for Halloween…

Speaking of that essential customer feedback, got any for me?  The comment field below is the perfect way to quickly let us know what you need.  If you’ve got a cool new light craft idea, or are searching for an LED product but just keep striking out, I can help!  Let’s stay in touch, honey bunnies.  Cheers, mates, enjoy your Easter!
