You have to be particular about symmetry and shapes and for this you need to mark points and measure exact lengths of the lights. Remember you can create the pattern you want only if you will be patient and hang lights in a disciplined manner.

Thirdly, be sure of the lights you go for. Big sized bulbs don't look good when hanged, while icicle lights look amazing when hanged from roof top.

Fifthly, keep the wiring stuff at safe modes and out of reach of children and hang lights in a way that is safe and beautiful at the same time. Be sure that the plugging is done keeping in mind the load that a plug can take to avoid any danger.

Finally, switch on the lights and enjoy the mesmerizing view from outside.

So, this Christmas hang lights outside securely and in a captivating manner and shop for all the needed stuff to get the proper look.
