DIY Lighting Hire

Bulb Lighting has a large range of lighting options available for hire. We customise our hire kits for every event and can offer a heap of free advice and rigging accessories to make the installation as simple as possible. Tell us about your event and theme, and we will help you work out what you need to make your space beautiful. 

We offer flexible hire terms and yes, you can pick up your lights from our Mile End workshop on a Wednesday for a Saturday event.  If you are planning a special event and prefer to DIY, contact us to chat about how we can help.

Festoon Lighting

Our DIY hire festoon system is user-friendly, commercial grade and fully linkable.  You can easily join our 20-bulb festoon lengths together to create one long continuous run (of up to 200m) using a simple screw/cap joiner system.  Our festoons come with unique high-quality, low-wattage, warm clear globes, perfectly colour matched to the vintage Edison bulb.  Our DIY hire customers are always delighted by the beautiful soft atmospheric light that these globes create. 

We put together complete festoon hire kits starting from $60 and include everything you need such as rigging accessories, extension leads, spare globes, cable ties, clippers and of course, loads of advice.

Every festoon hire kit is carefully prepared and checked by our licensed “A” Class electrician so you can feel confident that you are hiring a commercial grade quality festoon system. Contact us for a specification sheet and quote. 

Bulb Drop Lighting

Bulb Lighting can hire you all you need to DIY install bulb drop pendant lighting.  Our bulb droppers simply screw into our unique festoon system to easily create individual bulb pendant drops.  The droppers come in a choice of 5 different lengths (starting at 30cm up to 2m) and are $5 each to hire individually.  

Complete kits with everything you need to create a 10 bulb drop feature start at $80 (including 10 bulb droppers in the length/s of your choice, the festoon adaptor, bulbs, extension leads, cable ties and clippers).


We have a huge range of lanterns in many colours and sizes that easily attach to our festoon system.  Lanterns in a variety of sizes and colours are a flat $1 each to hire (in addition to the festoon hire) and come with all the accessories you need. (Not available as a stand-alone hire item.)

Budlights & Fairylights

Our custom designed and manufactured budlighting system is like no other.  This is a very special product and takes overhead canopy and garden installations to a whole new level.  Think fairy lights on steroids; the buds are approximately 5-7 times the size and brightness of a standard fairy light and are dimmable.  Our unique budlighting system outputs a beautiful warm atmospheric light and runs on commercial grade dark cable.  The budlighting comes on large continuous reels in a choice of lengths and complete kits start at $100.

We also hire standard warm white fairy lighting on 50metre reels and hire kits start at $25.

Garden Lighting

With the right lights, gardens at night can be absolutely stunning. We have a great range of weatherproof warm LED outdoor lighting solutions and DIY hire kits starting at $30.  Tell us about your space, and we’ll help you work out what you need to make it look magical by night.


Lamps are such an easy way to create ambiance and warmth in a room. Each kit is highly customised and so prices vary, but generally you are looking at between $20-$60 per lamp hire kit including accessories. We have an abundance of lamps in every colour of the rainbow, so please contact us if you need lamps to suit a certain theme.
