Brown wire Christmas lights are fantastic for many different occasions. The brown color of the wire becomes invisible against many backgrounds. These are the best versatile lights for use in hundreds of creative projects all year long.
Decorating outside with brown wire Christmas lights
is ideal, since the wire blends into the trunks and branches of trees. Nativity scenes are notorious for using these types of lights. The wire disappears into the stable, leaving beautiful halos of light.
After the holiday season, the warm glow of a Christmas tree can be mimicked in many ways. Use brown wire Christmas lights indoors to brighten floral decor. Ficus or palm trees provide lovely bases to string the lights. They create a cozy, romantic atmosphere.
Wedding receptions are another place to use brown wire Christmas lights. The dark folding tables will hide the wire, especially when draped with material such as lace or tulle. The result is a beautiful room filled with soft lighting.
In the summer, the lights are a terrific way to enhance the garden. String them all around the trees, gazebos, picnic tables, and sitting areas. Light up paths with these lights instead of traditional outdoor lighting. Rock gardens are another place that would appreciate some twinkling lights.
Brown wire Christmas lights do not need to be packed away with the rest of the Christmas decor. There will always be a place to display them. They are the solution to any room in the house that has harsh lighting. Outdoors, they will create sparkling wonderlands any time of the year. Brown wire Christmas lights will certainly light up your life!

Winter is here, bringing with it days around the fireplace, hot chocolate with marshmallows and snowmen. It also brings heating bills. Depending on the area, heating bills grow ever higher with the price of coal and oil. Electricity, generated by coal or oil, also grows higher.
One answer to heating the home economically is the iHeater 1500. It uses quartz infrared technology to heat the room without blowing forced air. It works by heating objects and people the unit is directed at. Heat is produced instantly; there is no need to wait for the unit to heat up before working.
The iHeater 1500 can be found in big box stores and online. The remote control allows the user to choose settings of low, medium and high. On high, the unit uses 1500 watts of electricity, which is far less than forced air central heating. It has a lifetime washable filter, which saves money because no other filter is needed.
It does not remove oxygen from the air like gas and propane heaters do. Flames need oxygen to burn. The iHeater 1500 also has tip over protection, meaning if the unit is tipped over, it automatically turns off. Portable gas heaters do not have this protection.
Reviewers report that having humidity in the room helps the unit maintain the heat better. Others praise the heater without mentioning humidity. The iHeater 1500 works best when the directions are followed carefully. This is not a forced air heater that will circulate the air around the room. There is no fan in the heater to blow air or dust around, so it is healthier heat.
In a room properly insulated and the unit pointed in the direction that heat is needed, reviewers reported this unit works amazingly well and people have reported lower energy bills. It is worth the investment.

A drive through most neighborhoods in December will reveal hundreds of homes, each lit up with beautiful Christmas lights. However, after a few minutes you might begin to realize that each home looks remarkably similar to the one before it. For something a little different this holiday season, consider decorating your home with slightly more unique decorations, such as brown Christmas lights. Here are some ideas to get you started:
Contemporary Homes: In many modern, contemporary homes, traditional decor is skipped over in favor of something new and creative. Brown Christmas lights are the perfect choice for this style of home. The brown Christmas lights will bring something one of a kind to the space, but still illuminate the home in a breathtaking way.
Rustic Cabins: In a more natural setting, one filled with wooden beams and unfinished tables, it might seem out of place to bring in gaudy decorations or bright green, red and blue lights. Instead, consider stringing up some brown Christmas lights. The color will play off the natural materials found in the home, and lend to the rustic effect of the space.
Outdoor Spaces: If you are thinking about hanging some lights on an outdoor tree, from your front porch or even in the windows of your home so they are visible to outdoor passersby, consider brown Christmas lights. As something different and unique, they are more likely to stand out and be the talk of the town than a plain and ordinary set of lights.

Decorating for Christmas can be lots of fun, but it can also a challenge. Decorators will often aspire to conceal the wires of light strands to create a beautiful, unimpeded display of lights. Decorating trees, fences and homes can be a problem when decorating wood-colored objects. White or green strands stand out like a sore thumb and distract from the overall beauty of a festive light show. Brown Christmas lights are the answer to establishing a gorgeous light display without the annoyance of visible light strings.
The brown wire blends in nicely and is nearly invisible when the lights are on. Fences, staircases and decks can all be outfitted with brown Christmas lights that are barely noticeable when placed against the wood. Brown Christmas lights
are the perfect option for wrapping tree trunks with hundreds of lights without distracting from the beauty of the lights. The lights do not have to come down after the holidays. Brown Christmas lights are so unnoticeable they can be left up year-round. Lights can be used in landscaping or to add a degree of safety to a yard.
Consumers have several options when it comes to choosing the perfect brown Christmas lights. Clear mini lights in 50 or 100-bulb strands are one option. Energy efficient LED bulbs are much brighter and can also be found in the 50 or 100-bulb strands. Typically, light strands come equipped with the very handy end-to-end connecters which allow for several strands of lights on one outlet. These brown Christmas lights make holiday decorating easy and fun.

Step into a typical home during the month of December and you might be greeted with red and green decor, santa statues, traditional wreaths and even white lights. As beautiful as this might look, it will likely look similar to most other homes along the same street. For something daring, creative and unusual, consider these unique and alternative Christmas decoration ideas for your own home:
Outdoor Christmas Trees:
This is an affordable, eco-friendly and unique way to spruce up your outdoor space at Christmas. If you have a pine tree, or really any type of tree in your front yard, you can decorate it with lights and even ornaments just like you would with an indoor tree. However, you will save on the cost of buying a new Christmas tree, and you can spread the cheer to more people who will see your lit up tree from the street.
Unique Colors: Many homeowners decorate with the main colors of red and green, or accessorize with silver and white lights. While this is attractive, one way to stand out is with brown Christmas lights. Using brown Christmas lights is great if you have to support a certain athletic team whose color is brown, such as the Cleveland Browns. In addition, brown Christmas lights often look more appropriate in a rustic cabin or more rural home.
Around the World: If you want to make sure that your Christmas decorations stand out, opt for a more ethnic version of your favorite characters and styles. Consider purchasing some decorations from Germany or Italy, which are often handmade and will look attractive on the tree or the mantle. Plain, wooden carvings look stunning when compared to gaudy plastic items that are so common today.
By including unique items like outdoor Christmas trees, brown Christmas lights and international decorations, your holiday display can be truly unique.

A string of lights on trees and wreaths has become so commonplace during the holidays that they just don’t look right without the twinkling of these tiny captured stars. Light strings for the holidays are most commonly made with green wire to better show off the lights themselves, as the prominence of the green wire is reduced among a mass of evergreen boughs. But what if you want to string your lights somewhere other than on holiday greenery? Strings of lights, during the holidays or not, help brighten the mood in nearly any location, whether an office, home, deck or yard. The green wire on the lights can be hard to miss with other backgrounds, ruining the look you are trying to create. In addition, green wire lights are so associated with the holidays that if using them for another purpose many people will just take note of the greenness and not the lights themselves.
A simple solution? Use brown wire lights
instead of green. With brown wire lights, the neutral color of the wire lets it fall into the visual background on any dark colored surface, letting the lights be the ones to step forward. This is also true even if it has no background surface at all, since suspending brown wire lights overhead for an outdoor location leaves only the night sky as the background, and the neutral brown wire is washed out in the brightness of day.
Light strings are too visually striking to only use with evergreen decorations, or even to have their use limited to just the holidays. Brown wire lights let you explore the decorative uses of light strings year round, bringing down some stars from the sky to enliven and brighten your everyday spaces.

For the avid holiday decorator, there will likely arise instances in which common green wire Christmas lights are not suitable. Many people wish to decorate their wooden decks. Others have home decor which features exposed wood trim or other areas which have a brown background. Oftentimes, creating an outdoor winter wonderland scene requires decorating trees and other natural landscaping in the yard. These situations call for a less traditional approach to holiday lighting. For those who find themselves faced with a similar holiday decorating dilemma, brown wire Christmas lights may be the ideal solution.
Like green wire Christmas lights, brown wire Christmas lights
come in many styles and colors; however, due to the brown coloring of the wire along which the bulbs are stringed, brown wire Christmas lights offer a practical way of concealing unsightly electrical wiring in areas like tree trunks and branches, where green wiring is less likely to blend in with the wood coloring. Not only do brown wire Christmas lights come in strings of single colors and multicolored bulbs, but like green wire lights, they are also available in different wiring styles such as icicles, which can be hung along rooftops and windows, and they also are available in options with bulbs of different sizes and even frosted glass.
The Christmas season brings an exciting opportunity for creativity and self-expression. The many different lighting and decorating options that are available make it easy to create holiday displays that can be tailored to individual tastes and personalities. Planning for logistics, such as finding the right wiring that matches the decorating environment should also be easy. As an alternative to traditional green wire Christmas lights, brown wire Christmas lights can be extremely useful and essential in creating a spectacular and well-executed holiday display.
