NEXT TIME HANG IT UPSIDE DOWN SO THAT YOUR EXTENSION CORD IS AT THE TOP AND NOT BOTTOM AND HANGING DOWN UNDER YOUR ORNAMENT. YOU CAN TIE YOUR STRING TO THE EXTENSION CORD END AND IT WILL ONLY REQUIRE A FEW MORE FEET SO YOU CAN HIDE THE CORD AROUND THE TREE AND THROUGH ANY BUSHES. HOPE THIS HELPS. IVE LEARNED THE HARD WAY LOL..MAYBE I HAVE GIVEN YOU SOMETHING HELPFUL TO USE.
TIP RE EXTENSION CORDS OR JOINING LIGHT STRANDS TO PREVENT YOUR LIGHTS FROM COMING UNPLUGGED FROM EACH OTHER OR EXTENSION CORDS TIE THE TWO CORDS TOGETHER FIRST WITH A SIMPLE RIGHT OVER LEFT AND UNDER AS IF YOU ARE STARTING TO TIE SHOELACES, THIS TIP WILL NEVER FAIL YOU EVER. BUT IF YOUR EXTENSION CORD IS EXPOSED TO DAMP OR WET OR FREEZING WEATHER DUCT TAPING YOUR EXTENSION CORD CONNECTION SPOT IS ALWAYS A GOOD IDEA TO KEEP IT DRY. I USUALLY CUT A SMALL PLASTIC CONTAINER AND EVEN A NOTCH CUT OUT OF CONTAINER LID TO SIMPLY ENCASE.
I have managed with a few revisions to this method to get some lights upwards of 30 feet (+/- 5 feet) in my trees. I use a tighter weight (old brass lock painted to see better) and I use high test fishing line(80 lb or more) first (then use it to pull over the more friction ropes).
Love these lighted globe balls. It creates lots of light and gets you in the Christmas mood for sure. Love Sammy! You are so funny. Glad to see so much excitement on your first try! I was waiting for Sammy to grab the string lol. Looks like a lot of work but definitely worth it in the end.
on sunday we have 'bon-fire night or guy fawkes night'. it's where we have huge firework displays and huge bonfires lighting up the sky and it can be seen by the astronauts on the space station. it's rather grisly and strange that we celebrate it. because 'guy fawkes' was burnt on the stake for trying to blow up our 'houses of parliament'. we get to eat loads of crusty bread, cheese and pickles. talking of pickles. i had the recipe for american bread and butter pickles and am totally addicted to it. great idea with the string and bottle. i'll try that with the firework we have, called 'the katherine wheel'. it spins around like a windmill and lasts for a couple of minutes.
That looks lovely and what a good idea.just a word of caution i would not recommend using indoor extension cords outside you should have an outdoor one,because if it gets wet and you unplug that would give a shock.just stay safe im not sure what set up it is with the cords but enjoy!
