Install Christmas lights along a fake fireplace

Being the place where Santa places the presents, the fireplace has an important part during Christmas. You can decorate a fake fireplace too, even though you don’t really use it. Actually with no heat to melt the wires it becomes easier to install lights on a fake fireplace.

You decide if you want white or colored lights.

1. Measure the outline of the fireplace. The length of the light string should be that plus an additional 6 to 8 inches.

2. Begin taping the lights from the bottom of the fireplace going around it. Secure the lights to the fireplace by placing tape over the wires every foot. Continue placing the lights until you finish outlining the fireplace.

3. Connect the string of lights to the electrical outlet.
