Something that has really added to the fun of my Harry Potter themed Christmas tree has been electric candles. I origionally saw them in an ad with a high price tag and wondered if I could find something similar on Amazon. When I found them for around $15 for a box of 12 candles I was thrilled.
I ordered two boxes and ended up with one box of white and one of yellow lights. I prefer the white lights, but it may depend on the color scheme you choose for your tree. Mine was a Gryffindor color scheme of scarlet and gold, so white lights help break up a lot of the gold I have on my tree, but the yellow may be even better for trees with other color schemes.
The lights also come with suction cups so that they can stick to glass, spikes that you could stick in plants or lawn, and clips so that they clip onto branches of a Christmas tree. They also come with a remote (battery included) to turn the entire set of lights on and off, control the brightness of the lights, and a set of controls for the flickering of the lights.
The only down side to the lights is that each candle requires one triple-A battery not included with your order and needs to be added to each candle separately. However, the battery life has been good so far and the remote works really well. It would be even cooler if the candles would flicker at different rates and not all at the same time, but for the price I paid I can’t complain.
I’m excited to have these fun electric candles around for all sorts of fun future Harry Potter occasions.
