How To Hang Outdoor Christmas Lights - Tips For Putting Up
love the idea but starting at the bottom, doesn’t your plug end at the top of the tree? I have always worked my way down so the final strand can plug in at the bottom….just wondering how you work this. your tree looks beautiful

I also go with the wrapping the branches method, but the thing I never thought of is to add the branches as I go. I always put the entire tree together and then light. Doing it in chunks is pretty smart.
For starters, safety first! Your source of power should come from a ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) outlet. This type of outlet will shut the circuit down if there is overcurrent. We want your lights to shine, not sparks to fly! If you don't have a GFCI outlet, a qualified electrician can permanently install one outdoors for holiday seasons to come. Or, you can buy a portable outdoor unit from your local home store for less than $75.
Nontraditional Christmas colors are oftentimes the most eye-catching displays. These neon-purple lights intermingle with classic reindeer figures, an inflatable Santa and candy canes, causing the bold hues to stand out even more.

Love your tree this year – my tree is usually mostly white with various other colours mixed in (mostly red) however this year somehow it ended up all white and silver with crystals and i put a lot less on this year i always use white iights and make sure to pull some into the centre so it is lit all the way thru – i just put on a couple of red ornaments that had some special meaning to me – once its dark and the tree lights are turned on it just sparkles so muchas the crystals reflect the lights – i’m glad we are both happy with our trees again – you certainly have a wonderful decorator’s flair – everything you do is lovely \i wish you and your famiiy a Merry Christmas carol
The following DIY image tutorial used a single 75 count LED light string and wrapped a trunk approximately 9'H and 65 diameter, as well as two branches. A tighter wrap and more branch coverage is recommended.
Okjust found this on Pinterest. Do you think it’s worth it for a 9 foot tree? The bottom seems so bare I’m not sure the technique would be as successful.
I learned this technique several years ago from a friend who’s a florist…I wouldn’t light a tree any other way. If you have an artificial tree that’s made in sections (as opposed to the kind with detachable branches), you can put the lights on, wire them on with floral wire, and as long as you end each section with another strand of lights, you can leave them on from year to year. I did that on a tree many years ago, and it worked beautifully for about 65 years…and I didn’t have to put lights on every year!
