Step 1: Putting on the Lights
Christmas Tree LED String Lighting from Masons Home Decor are 10 metres per cable (set).
We have lights in Pure White, Warm White, Multi-Colour. Choose a colour that best suits your desired tree theme. Pure White Lights will be used in this example because our tree is having decorations of a cool theme. Warm White Lights should be used for warm theme ornaments such as gold, brown, maroon, and so on.
Here is the best gauge of how many lights you need:
- 5 foot Christmas tree: 1 set
- 6 foot Christmas tree: 2 sets
- 7 foot Christmas tree: 3 sets
- 8 foot Christmas tree: 4 sets
With the above recommendation, you can expect your lights to be coiled around the surface of the tree, with each bulb being approximately 10 cm from each other. Feel free to add more lights if you wish to have more, or, wish to have an effect of depth whereby some cables can be shoved deeper into the tree.
Coiling the Lights Around the Tree
Start by connecting the LED lights into your power source and keep it turned off for safety purposes. From the bottom, start coiling till you reach the top.
Extending Your Cable of Lights
Each set of string lights come with a connectable plug that allows you to connect one set of string lights to another for a longer flow of lights. Should you require a longer length, for example, 30 metres, simple connect 3 sets together.
Concealing of Wires
For a neater tree, conceal the string lights in the branches, after you have completed circling the lights round the entire tree from bottom to top.. This is also important for families with pets or young children. We wouldn’t want them to trip on the tree!
