Adding lights to your patio umbrellas adds functional and aesthetic light and highlights your outdoor decor. We recommend our patio and bistro globe string lights for the best lighting effect with your umbrella. It is recommended that you consider the umbrella circumference measurement when selecting a strand that will best fit your umbrella.
Many of the most common patio umbrellas are nine or eleven feet in diameter with eight sides (octagon shape). For those, you would need 28’ and 34’ feet of lighted length to outline the perimeter of the umbrella, respectively. If your round umbrella differs from these diameters, just multiply the diameter by 3.14 to get the circumference.
If your umbrella light project requires even greater lengths, we have longer globe light strands available as well.
