Girls With Lanterns Lighted Canvas Art

Girls With Lanterns Lighted Canvas Art

In a previous post, we introduced you to our line of Lighted Canvas Art.  This new art form, also known as LED Wall Art, combines traditional framed artwork with LED lighting.  The result is a twinkling, flickering, glowing picture that seems almost alive.  Hang on a wall or place on your mantel – the effect is stunning.

Canvas prints are selected for their compatibility with accompanying LED’s.  The LED’s are placed so they shine through the print at strategic points:  a lighted lamppost, for example, a glowing Jack-O-Lantern, a lighted Christmas tree or a country church with welcoming candles in its windows.

All LED Wall Art features a quality canvas print, stretched and nailed to a wood frame.  The LED’s are either amber or white, flickering or glowing.  An On/Off switch is located on the side of the canvas.  Two AA batteries required.

Our initial offering of Lighted Canvas Art is designed to have something for everyone, in various shapes, sizes and price ranges.  We’ll be adding more pieces in the coming months – if you can’t find something you like now, we’ll probably have it soon!

For starters, take a look at our Seasonal and Holiday Themes – with quantity discounts for multiple items, you can save while creating a collection of unique LED Wall Art you can rotate throughout the year.

Grape Vines With Lighted LED's

Grape Vines With Lighted LED’s

Distinctive Natural Grape Vine Lights make a great indoor and outdoor decoration.

Here are battery-powered LED string lights inserted into sphere-shaped Grape Vines.  You’ll receive a set of five 6-inch diameter spheres, arranged on a light strand 8-feet long,with 24-inch spacing between the spheres.  There is a 24-inch lead to the battery pack (3 AA batteries).

A nice touch is a timer feature – the Grape Vine Lights will come on at the same time each day and run for six hours.

Use these Natural Grape Vine Lights to enhance flower gardens, or hang from pergolas, trellis, arbors and tree branches.  Perfect mood lighting for backyard parties and celebrations!  Since they’re battery operated, they’re hassle-free and go anywhere.

LED’s – light emitting diodes – are cost efficient and long-life.  Small LED’s that produce bright light are ideal for string lights and where bulb replacement is time-consuming and costly.  Similarly, LED’s are an ideal light source in battery operated candles, where inserting them into the candle body assures long life with no maintenance.

Take a look at our Pinterest page, loaded with ideas and photos for outdoor lighting and decorations.  You’ll find ornamental and functional candle lanterns and urns, flameless outdoor candles, and many more creative outdoor lighting ideas!

Water Gel Beads For Vases

Water Gel Beads For Vases

Gel beads that expand in water add instant color to any arrangement.  Our gel beads for vases come in a rainbow of colors – 12 colors to display solo or in combinations.

Long used in the floral industry, water gel beads have found their way into home decor.  You’ll discover myriad uses, from colorful decorations in vases and floral arrangements, to functional use when placed in potting soil for slow release of moisture.

We offer gel beads for vases in black, blue, pink, green, orange, purple, red, teal, white, yellow, peach and clear colors.  Purchase small pouches or bulk bags of gel beads, depending on your project.

Less expensive than stones or glass marbles, attractive water gel beads add color to clear glass vases, whether you top the vase with flowers or one of our battery operated tea lights.  You can use one color, or layer several colors for a distinctive look.
