Dazzling your home with Christmas is always a fun activity to do with your family, whether that's by laying net lights on bushes or neatly displaying color changing LED Christmas lights on your roof top for Santa to see, it can be a great way to bond with your family. On another note, if you love putting up Christmas lights with your family, there are some tips you could be missing out on, like tips on dazzling your home with Christmas lights to make the process easier and safer.
- Whether you’re stringing a tree, a bush, a light pole or the pillars on your porch, you should start from the bottom and work your way up. String your color changing LED Christmas lights starting at the bottom, then wrap them in a spiral motion to illuminate the structure or tree brightly. When lighting an evergreen, we suggest that you start at the top and zigzag lights through the center all the way to the bottom to get a wider effect that takes the tree’s shape.
- Are you considering the location of the object you’re lighting? Don’t feel the need to decorate trees or bushes that can’t be seen by passer-byers. Save lights and energy by skipping those bushes or trees and throw some extra lights on something else that is visible.
- If you’re looking to add some dimension to your Christmas lights this year, consider lighting up your driveway and/or pathways with multicolored LED lights.
- Although Christmas lights are meant to be bright and colorful, too many lights can overload your home’s circuits. To stay safe, make sure you’re including no more than 1,400 watts of lights on a circuit. Tip: if other lights in your home are dimming down when you turn on your color changing LED Christmas lights outside, your circuit is overloaded.
