Thanksgiving has passed and the big holiday is upon us. Since Christmas is less than a month away, now is a great time to get your home ready for the festivities at hand. How would you like your home to look this Christmas? Are you the type that likes to just lay out a candle or two with a tree? Maybe you like to go all out with decorating? No matter the type, Blair Stover has a great idea that is easy to make and beautifully appealing.
A “rope light strand” could be the perfect answer to what you have been missing in previous years. You can create it in minutes and the finished product is stylish and festive as it will meet any household’s holiday decorating needs. Here is how you make a simple rope light strand:
1. Take one long string of lights and combine it with a thick horse or cattle rope. Make sure both are the same length and just weave them so they are wrapped around each other. You should start with the light’s female end and start weaving. Just make sure they both end up being the same length.
2. Hang your light strand up or you can make a design of anything you wish. Using colors wouldn’t be a bad idea either.
This DIY light strand is simple and can be done with a minimal amount of work. Steal the show by bringing out something unique and watch your guests marvel at it. The best part is that it hardly costs anything.
