Globe string lights are a great way to illuminate your seasonal celebrations, weddings, patios, and indoor/outdoor home decorating. Use these with paper lanterns or alone for a festive ambiance. While they can be used outside, how weather proof they are depends on how well the bulbs are seated in the sockets. They are made with tough, heavy gauge wire, and are designed for installs of up to 90 days. Green 50 foot cord with 50 sockets spaced 12 inches apart. Set of 50 5-watt G40 light bulbs included. Lanterns sold separately. Do not plug more than 100 consecutive feet together. For use with lanterns up to 10 inches in diameter.
