Christmas lights ideas

(Lets lights, light up your Christmas)

Use a combination of candles and lights for Christmas decor.Lighting has almost taken over Christmas candles as they burn for longer periods of time and are comparably safer for decoration purposes. Especially Christmas trees have turned more charming, sparkling and magical with light strands illuminating them. With time, the art of installing Christmas lights has evolved to the level where it has become an art in itself. Lets see how to choose the color or combination of color of lights, check for the load of electricity that you can safely use, the different patterns in which to arrange the strings of light and how to install Christmas lights.

(These types of Innovative lights will definetly add to your Christmas decor)

Here are the tips to use:

  • The most common color combinations appropriate for the Christmas season include red, green and copper lights that denote festivity; blue and green lights for more subdued arrangements; novelty combinations such as blue and red lights; and mauve, blue and copper lights.
  • While you can use a combo of as many as five colors for coniferous trees, use not more than three colors for deciduous trees.
  • Any color of light used with white does not show itself well, so if are planning to use white lights, stick to the monochromatic scheme.
  • Use low watt bulbs for strings and indoor light decoration but you will need high watt bulbs for outdoor decorations and lights that will be viewed from a distance.
  • Dip the socket end of the light bulb in petroleum jelly before fitting it into the socket string. This will prevent corrosion in the socket and will make it easier to pull out the bulb from it later.
  • Tape all connections well with electrical tape to avoid short-circuits.
  • Lights installed on the trees to keep up with its growth look quite graceful.
    Do not try to climb the branches of the tree you want to decorate. Use stepladder instead.
  • Work on the tree from top to bottom and from inside to outside for ease of work and safety purposes.

The best advice when it comes to Christmas decorating is "plan ahead". Decide whether you plan to use Christmas decors both indoors and outdoors, how many you'll need and where you'll place them. Decide whether each room will have a unique decor theme or if one theme will carry from room to room. As you can see there is a lot to consider when it comes to Christmas decorating. While some people love the spontaneous approach, others hate it. If you're one of the latter, make a detailed plan. This is especially true if you have a sophisticated theme in mind for your Christmas decors. Everyone has driven past lawns with the most beautifully laid out decor. Do you think they just threw those decor up? Probably not. They were probably working from a rough floor plan.

You Can’t Go Wrong

If, however, you're a spontaneous decorator, simply go where your imagination takes you. Does the stairway need some garland? Sure, why not! How about a mantle full of nutcracker dolls? Maybe some Christmas candles on that table would look great. When it comes to Christmas decorations, there is no right or wrong way to approach it. Christmas is a rich holiday full of many diverse traditions. Express it in the way that is uniquely you; use any or as many Christmas decor as you want
