Group strands of lights to cover sections of a wire wreath frame, attaching with zip ties to the back of the frame. Here, three strands of 25-count lights cover a 12-inch frame. Plug your light wreath into an extension cord and see your garden fence in a whole new light. PRO TIP: Using clear and/or frosted bulbs means your decor project will look great year-round--not just at Christmastime.
Wrap string lights around a thin oversized wreath and suspend in your outdoor dining area for a twinkling ambiance.
