glowing festoon lights hanging in the dark

How are festoon lights measured?

First of all, how are festoon lights measured? This is a great question, as you’ll want to determine their length and spacing. Festoon lights are measured by the size of your space which will determine the number of lights you need, and the brightness level. For outdoor usage, be sure to check the IP rating of the lights before buying them, as well.
