Happy Green Halloween from Inhabitat!

In the spirit of our favorite fall holiday, we’d like to share with you some ideas for green Halloween decorations….

SOLAR JACK-O-LANTERN PATIO LIGHTS

Light up your porch for Halloween with these pumpkin solar garden lights [2]. They have a solar panel to collect sunlight to power the rechargeable Ni-Cd batteries, and an automatic sensor activates the light to come on at dusk. (Thanks to American Inventor Spot for the tip). [3]

Philips LED Candles
LED LUMIERES [4]
These Philips LED candles [4] aren’t really designed specifically for Halloween decor – but we think they’d make great lumieres. They flicker and provide the soft glow of real candles without any of the smoke, short life or fire hazards that real candles bring, and would be especially appropriate to lining your patio on a cold autumn night.



FIREFLY GARDEN LIGHTS

Finally, these Firefly Garden lights aren’t really specific to Halloween either, but they are perfect for the fall. Firefly Magic’s lights are programmed to flicker and fade just like real fireflies, and they even come with solar-powered batteries.

If you have any other ideas… please share them with us. Have a happy and safe Halloween!
