During the Holiday Season individuals love to see lights on houses and trees! But very few people actually know how difficult and time consuming this process can be. So today I wanted to share a few tips that can help save you some time when you decorate your house for this holiday season.
Trees can make or break a yard during the Holiday Season. If your trees are wrapped well with matching colors your yard can look immaculate. If your trees are wrapped with a less than best effort it can take away from the main feature, your house.
Here are some guided instructions on the best ways to wrap your trees this year:
- Before beginning pick out which branches you would like to wrap and how high you would like to go. Be sure that you have a ladder if needs be in order to wrap those hard to reach branches. (Remember that not every branch has to be wrapped)
- Begin by plugging in your first strand to the power outlet to ensure that you have power and that your lights are working.
- Start by wrapping at the base of the tree.
- Work your way up the branch by wrapping the strand 3-4” apart each wrap around the tree.
- Once you get to the desired height of that branch come back down by wrapping in the 3-4” space that you left on your way up. So it will look something like this
- Once you come back down the branch go up your next branch of choice.
- Continue steps 4-6 until you have finished the tree. (As a general rule of thumb try wrapping an odd number of branches. It usually looks better.)
- Take a step back with all of your lights on to see if the tree looks good. Maybe add a few strands to a branch or wrap an entire new branch
- Impress all of your neighbors with your great looking trees!
