I generally think christmas lights are tacky, but I am trying to find some that pass my class test and also are cheap.
Here is what I found so far:
$13 Room Essentials globe lights
25 feet with 25 bulbs
fragile glass bulbs that people say break if you don't remove them before hanging
There is also a frosted bulb variation
$24.99 Threshold solar light strings
These are protected by little metal cages so they are more durable, and don't need an outlet to work.
14 feet, 20 glass bulbs
$20 Threshold globe solar string lights
129 feet, 30 bulbs (3 ft apart)
These have plastic bulbs and are really long but get bad reviews.
$22 LED string with timer warm white
Are the lights just little blobs in the string? Not sure if I like that.
