Tips to String Lights on an Outdoor Tree

Wrapping trunks of outdoor trees (as well as branches) with fairy lights is a fun and inexpensive way to illuminate your outdoor space

You will need:  – Clear indoor /outdoor heavy duty lights – Zip Ties (optional) – Outdoor Extension cord (optional)

Select a tree you want to use for lights. Consider how close it is to an electrical outlet.

Start wrapping at the bottom of the tree. With the first strand of lights, ensure you have the male end (male plug) of the light strand accessible to plug into an outlet/power source.

Use zip ties as needed to secure the lights. The closer you space the lights, the more dramatic the end result will be!
