Shut the front door!! I can’t believe somebody hasn’t thought of this before!
The world of TikTok is going crazy over this Christmas Tree Lights hack. You know how you usually string the lights AROUND the tree, in between the branches, back and forth?
Well, instead of wasting all that time, TikTok users are suggesting that you hang your lights up and down — vertically instead of horizontally. It is called the Zig Zag Method.
Now, at first thought, I was inclined to say, “But, doesn’t this make the trees look weird?”
NO!! They look even more blingy and beautiful than normal!
People are saying that hanging them in this up and down fashion is so much better, because it uses far less light strands, and it makes changing burned out strands much easier.
I just think it looks hecka pretty! I love how full and beautiful the lights turn out when you hang them vertically.
Now, of course, some trees of the fake variety (like the one in my front room right now) come prelit. No worries. I hung up even MORE lights in this vertical fashion — and it turned out GORGEOUS!
Just TRY decorating your tree this way. I promise, you will not regret it!!
