The Christmas tree may not be the most glamorous part of tree decorating, but the glittering results are worth the effort. You will need the strength of lights, optional, LED lights and extension cords. If you're using last year's lights, check them to make sure they don't have any frayed wires, burned-out bulbs or cracked sockets. If you're buying lights, figure on 100 lights for every foot of tree, don't connect more sets than the manufacturer suggests, or you might blow a fuse.
Consider using LED lights available where other tree lights are sold. They cost a bit more, but they stay cool to the touch last longer and consume less energy. Verify that all your lights work together, tree lights, come in two types, stacked or end-to-end stacked plugs. Allow you to join more strands than the end-to-end variety. Always hang lights before any tinsel Garland's or ornaments, start by lighting the tree from within beginning at the top of the tree grab a string of lights around the trunk.
Now light the branches starting again at the top, with a new strand of lights, drop the plug and around the branch to secure. It then begin winding the string down and around , letting it rest lightly on the outermost branch tips. When you come to the end of one string, just attach the next string of lights, to start where you left off, take care not to cross the strands, you may need extension cords to plug in your lights.
If you're fighting an artificial tree and intent to leave the lights attached when you store it, secure them by wrapping the cord around individual branches every few feet. If your tree just symbols in sections string the lights so that each section has its own strain, turn on the lights and a few feet back from the tree, walk around it checking whether the lights are evenly spaced and looking for dark areas make any adjustments needed.
