Special Nonexistent Furniture

Decide which type of lighting you want to use—mini, icicle, classic, LED, or net lighting. 
Hang lights with a partner. It's helpful (and safer!) to have someone hold the ladder and hand you supplies.
Use plastic clips that secure lights to gutters or shingles instead of a hammer and nails. 
Check your power source. Outdoor Christmas lights should be plugged into power circuits that are protected by a ground fault circuit interrupter.
Once your lights are hung, install a timer to make sure your lights turn on and off when you want them to. This will help save money on the electric bill, too.

It's the most merry and bright time of year! 
Homes all up and down the block will be adorned with twinkling lights in a rainbow of colors. Before you head outside to decorate your home with holiday cheer, make sure you have the right materials, stock up on the cutest lights, and take the proper safety measures. With our five tips, hanging your exterior lights will be a breeze this year!
