One of the first things to catch your eye when it comes to Christmas trees are the lights. It doesn’t matter if you favor white LEDs, Yellow Twinkle Lights, or bubble lights, you want people to take notice. The key is to get a full, even coverage. But this can’t be achieved if you don’t have enough lights, so when you think you have enough, buy three more strands! We bought extra strands for our client here, and every reel was used!
Once you have your lights, the next thing to do is test them. There’s nothing worse than perfectly positioning your lights and plugging them in, only to find a huge dark section at the top of your tree. Testing your lights beforehand can save you a trip to the store in the middle of your project and the headache of having to redo all of your hard work.
As soon as you’re sure all of your lights are in working order, you can begin layering them on your tree. Be sure to drape them loosely. The slack gives you the ability to stand back and adjust the lights to fill in dark and uneven areas, guaranteeing your tree looks great from every angle!
