Mini Lights with Black Wire

Customer Question: "Do you have (insert your favorite color here) lights with black wire?" 

At first, we made a trial of just clear lights on black wire but we heard this question way too often not to manufacture more than just classic white.

Now you can choose between brilliant traditional colors like red, green, yellow, orange and blue or live outside the box with choices like pink or purple.

(In fact, the purple, yellow and green are great for Mardi Gras!)

Perfect for new chic black Christmas trees they are also great for parties and events.

Here are additional frequently asked questions that these lights are a great answer for:

How do I light up a ceiling? The black wire on these mini lights helps camouflage how the lights are hung and gives more of an appearance of lights twinkling above you party-goers heads. Very magical. Now that we offer the lights in colors like pink and purple, you can even accent the dance floor with your wedding colors.

Any ideas for decorating for prom?  Decorate for prom by hanging lights in your school colors from the gym ceiling. (I guess they still have prom at the gym somewhere......). Or decorate for the next big dance by hanging the lights in this category on the ceiling - if your event is in the evening, the "disappearing wire" makes managing the cords easier.

Do you have lights for theater backdrops?  Lights with black wire are especially nice for theater applications where you are using black drapes or backdrops. As part of set lighting, they are particularly easy to disguise against a dark background. Consider using mini lights with black wire on frames and structures. The wire is less obvious if you are spanning gaps and filling a space with lights.
