Tips to Hang Christmas Lights
As the holiday season approaches, many of us look forward to adorning our homes with the warm and festive glow of Christmas lights. Whether you're a seasoned decorator or a first-time light-hanger, here are some valuable tips to help you create a dazzling and safe display:
PLAN YOUR DESIGN
Before you start hanging lights, plan your design. Consider where you want to place lights, which areas to highlight, and whether you'll incorporate any themed decorations.
HANG ALONG EAVES & ROOFLINES
The eaves and rooflines of your home are popular places for lights. Use clips or hangers to secure lights along these edges for a neat and attractive display.
MEASURE & ESTIMATE
Measure areas where you intend to hang lights to determine how many strands you'll need. It's better to have a surplus than be short.
TEST BEFORE HANGING
Plug in your lights to test them before you start hanging. This will help identify any issues and save you time during installation.
