4 Ways to Style and Display Your Christmas Lights
Don't just hang them at home! Be creative and feel free to experiment
Twinkling wonders in different shapes, sizes, colors–Christmas lights add a warm glow to any space. Many homeowners choose to hang these charming luminaries outside–as if to invite guests into the home and there are those who always use it to liven up an old tree.
Aside from the common ways that we use Christmas lights at home (we're sure that you have your own traditions!), you may also try to work on a few creative ideas. Don't limit yourself as there's a lot that you can do! Here are four ideas to get you started:
Use it as wall accent
Aside from hanging your lights horizontally and vertically, you can actually form words and designs using them that can serve as wall accents at home. Spell out Merry Christmas or if you don't have a space for a tree, form a shape of a Christmas tree!

Add a new twist
For an interesting and unexpected twist, spray paint your lights in a shade that works well with the overall palette of your house or room. Consider colors such as gold and silver for a sophisticated touch.

Use everyday items
Always think outside the box when styling your home. If you have extra bottles at home, place your Christmas lights inside and use it as a quirky centerpiece that you can place on the dining table. You may also place a few jars of light in your bedroom and in the lanai, too!
Before placing the lights inside, make sure that the bottles are clean and dry.

Feel free to use in anywhere
We usually place our lights in a spot where many people can see and appreciate it. However, don't let this limit you! Create a whimsical vibe in your bedroom by using it as a faux headboard.
You can also hang it in the kitchen–in a spot where it won't get wet! Consider using it to spruce up a plain wall, plain cabinets, or even a window!
