DECORATIONS

HIGH LIGHTS

Do you have young children or animals that are constantly attracted to play with your decorations?

I started doing this many years ago, not only does it create a very Christmassy feeling, it also keeps the electrics out of reach of exploring hands.

HOW I DO IT

I hammered two nails downwards into the picture rail on either side of the window, and another two the opposite side of the room, but you could also use curtain eyelets if you prefer, these are hidden for the rest of the year by the curtains and those at the other end I can pull out until the next time.  Using a roll of thin garden wire I ran about 3-4 lengths between each of the opposing nails on the long stretches, then between those two lengths at either end to make a rectangle. I did this as I have a light with a fan in the centre of the room and needed it wide enough not to stop its use.  I then used some tape to hold the strands together at roughly 6 inches apart.

I then wrapped my Christmas lights around the rectangle, again taping them into place on the wire, finaly wrapping the thick tinsel around the framework to hide the wires and the small control box that controls the pattern of flashing.

As I made loops at each end of the four wires, it makes removing them easy, I store assembled in a box and it only takes a few minutes to put back up again the next year. 

Its advisable to use Fire-resistant tinsel and the new style LED neon type lights as these do not generate heat. I have about 140 bulbs wrapped around the framework, you can have them flashing or as I do static, I rarely use my normal light as these are bright enough.
