Let’s talk pumpkin lights!
When it comes to these lights, we realize there are several uses. Some folks are looking for lights for actual pumpkins—for that spooky, flickering effect. Other folks want a string of pumpkin lights for an indoor display . . . or pumpkin lights on stakes to light a sidewalk.
For the best lights to go in a pumpkin, we would recommend tea lights that are battery-operated. Of course, one key advantage here: they can be reused for other times of the year.
We tried out a few different tea lights with a flickering effect before deciding Homemory’s tea lights are the best of the bunch. Here’s why:
What We Liked
• LED lights are cool to the touch.
• Realistic flicker.
• Use CR2032 button-type batteries.
• Detailing mimics a real candle: note the wave shape at top edge that looks like melting wax.
• 100+ hours of light.
• 12 pack.
• Batteries are replaceable.
What Needs Work
• Cool, blueish-like. Some folks like a warmer yellow glow—these probably aren’t the best choice in that case! We liked the cool glow, but we can see how it wouldn’t please others.
• No remote or timer.
