How do you use Christmas lights to decorate for Christmas?
1. I like a few clear mini lights on the tree.
2. I like multi color lights on the Christmas tree that flash and I use clear mini lights to accent a wreath above my fireplace. I like to outline my roof and walkway with just one color of traditional lights - like clear, red or blue.
3. I really like to decorate the outside of my house Christmas. I outline my house in lights, wraps the trees, use net lights on my shrubs and for a little spice I like to add some lights here and there that twinkle and blink.
4. I love Christmas and I look forward to putting up my Christmas lights all year. I love all kinds of lights and enjoy finding new ways to use them. My garage, fence and all my trees are fair game and I love seeing folks slow down to see my work. Automation is great and my house was #3 on You Tube last year.
