Shape up those Christmas Lights

Written by Denis Trotman

This month’s edition is all things festive. A great easy little project for all ages.

Christmas light decorations can be bought but then others in the neighbourhood can be the same. Make your house stand out from the rest by making your own.

Using fairy lights, make up easy silhouette Christmas shapes by using zip ties to hold them in place on wire mesh. The bigger the shape the more it will stand out.

I used solar lights. So no need to run power cords. They can then be placed anywhere in the yard. Attach them to a wall, fence, or add timber stakes to stand them up in the middle of the yard.

Get the kids involved in this one. Let their imagination run wild and stand out in the street.

Merry Christmas everyone!
