Start the Madness: Basketball Team Spirit in Lights

It’s the most wonderful time of the year for all of you college basketball fans, and even for you none basketball fans who don’t know the bracket definition, it’s still an exciting time. Your eyes will be glued to your TV as you cheer on your favorite teams. Friendly discussions between your friends will turn into competitive banter as the games go by and the winners work their way through the brackets. Team colors will be represented and jerseys will be worn. Most of you die-hard fans will stop at nothing to show your team spirit.

So, why stop there? Sure, you can represent your team through your clothes and conversations. But why not show the world, or at least your neighbors, your devotion as well? Adding a splash of light and color to your house can really add some fun to the whole basketball fan experience. Wrap your basketball hoop with rope lights in your team’s colors, Or line your front window or door-frame, with sting lights of your favorite college basketball team colors. The options are endless.

Draw your team’s logo on a piece of cardboard and punch holes along the lines. Then paint it white and push LED string lights through the holes to illuminate the sign. Let’s say you want to represent the entire tournament and not one particular team. You can draw a basketball instead of a logo and then change the colors every time a team wins. Display your board in your front window or on your garage for the world to see. It’s a fun and easy project to do with the kids too, since LEDs never get hot.

Looking to create the ultimate March basketball fan display? Don’t get stuck with one color scheme dependent on your team’s victory. Decorate with programmable RGB lights and change colors and designs to match the current dominant team(s). Line your windows, outfit your game or party room, cover your bushes or trees with these strings of lights, and then get creative. Represent each game as it is happening. Support multiple teams on different nights. Or instantly change the colors if your team falls off the bracket.

No matter which team you are rooting for, you can guarantee that your decorations will be a slam-dunk this year! Have any other ways to “light” up your team spirit? We’d love to see it!
