Proceed with Caution
Christmas is a lighthearted and jolly occasion, but this caution tape garland is reminiscent of a police investigation. It’s best to leave the jokes at the door; after all, the only crime this holiday season should be your uncle's sweater choice.

The Bare Minimum
Measure the tree before you hit the store so you know how many strands of garland to buy. Otherwise, your bedecked evergreen may look like it forgot to wear pants.

Tall and Skinny
Imagine this: You’re hosting a holiday party when half of the lights on your Christmas tree suddenly burn out. Enlist the help of a surge protector to ward off disaster and keep lights twinkling all season long.

Didn’t buy enough string lights? Instead of clumping them in one section of branches, space them evenly around the entire Christmas tree. They may end up a little thin, but the symmetry will help create an aesthetically pleasing design.
