Browsing all articles in Lights

Yesterday we started with the balconies.

We wrapped the garland around the railing on our floor and the floor above (we get to decorate everything 🙂 ).



After two hours of wrapping the garland around the railing and getting stuck by the metal all the time, that job was done and we were able to start stringing the first strings of lights.


Each balcony railing will contain 1000 multi colored lights.


Well since we moved into our new place the old window frames didn’t fit anymore. So we had to take them apart and re-assemble them. We have 8 frames now, at the old place we had 7 but the sizes where different. Hoping to add more next year for the other side of the building.

They are made from regular PVC pipe that is used to install into buildings to lay electrical cables in. Angles are screwed down so that they can’t loosen and then the lights are strung over them and held in place with some hot glue.

The frames for the windows have 2 x 100 count multis on them, the large frames for the balcony door have 3 x 100 multis.
