Christmas Tree Lights

Postby phil_in_npton » December 8th, 2018, 7:15 pm

Good Evening!

A question regarding the lights we hang on our Christmas trees...

In the old days we had the lights with the push in bulbs. Unreliable and a pain to find a dud one and replace etc. Then they are replaced with the LED ones.

All good you would think, brighter, safer and more reliable.

However I find the LED lights only seem to come in the four standard colours of Red, Green, Yellow and Blue. None seems to have the prettier pink and mauve options. Does anyone know anywhere that sells modern LED lights in more variety of colours, not all pink or mauve but included in a mixed string of colours.

Thanks

seen yellows , pinks greens etc on LED sold on Amazon but stick to the old fashioned lights is best...LED lights are lucky to last one season in my experience

Get a set of cheapo acrylic paints....should be able to get a set of tubes with a good range of colours for a few quid. Don't have to go to a posh Art Shop. Set of clear lights,small artists paint brush and off you go!
