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!

DIY: LED “BIKE” Strip Lights

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.

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.

Peace, Love and Bead Crafts!

beads3Bead Crafts knock my socks off. The low cost of wholesale Mardi Gras Beads keeps it cheap, while keepin’ it real with a whole lotta shine & bling.  Bead crafts can transform into seriously effective DIY party decor.  Remember beaded curtains?  Former flower children & alternative types know what I’m talkin’ about:  that sweet jingle jangle of plastic strands as you walk through a doorway.  There are a ton of New Orleans inspired bead creations on Pinterest, but this one reigns supreme, plus can be made to fit windows, neat-o.  I crafted my own magical doorway beaded curtain for Halloween using FBL glow beads – do you like?

mardigrasbeadcurtain

bead_crafts<<<  That’s right, amigos, I put that together from scratch with 3 things:  my trusty glue gun, a plank of wood, and a pile of beads.  That’s all you need for curtain bead crafts!  Oh, and patience, have plenty of that on hand, for it’s just repetitive motions once you have the materials gathered.  If you’re ready to dive into the world of bead crafts, get some strands from FBL to go all matchy-matchy like I did (took me 66 total bead necklaces), or go the more eclectic route and add old random beads from past Mardi Gras parades.

Let’s cut to the chase – here’s what ya do:

  • Cut each necklace so they’re now long un-connected strands,
  • Hot glue 2 pieces together to make an extra long strand,
  • Get a plank of wood to hot glue these stands to,
  • Repeat until your bead curtain is full enough to your liking, aaaand there ya have it.

Another one of my favorite bead crafts is archived in our blog from last Mardi Gras when I added our sparkly strands to the brim of a top hat.  Mardi Gras is year ’round for so many party people, so it’s never too early to re-visit this gem.  Special guest appearance by our cool copper wire LED string lights!  Battery powered for crafts, y’all.
