  • October 20, 2014

Like many of you I love the look of huge trees, lit from their base to the end of their branch tips. This type of Christmas light installation takes a ton of lights and a lot labor. It also often calls for special equipment to be brought in to safely install the lights over the canopy. Unfortunately, it's not in everyone’s budget to have this done to their trees. That is, until now. Here's how you can do your Christmas Lights on a Budget We are offering...

by Maria Bargellini  If  you read part one of this post you should have a good idea of any considerations that have to be made prior to picking a technique.

  • October 10, 2011

They look great in trees or over your entryway, breezeway or any type of archway. The tubes come in a variety of lengths and combinations. For example, you can get a 5 tube strand in 10 or 20 inches, a mixed strand of  (3)-20 inch tubes and (2) 40" tubes,...
