How to Cover Up the Christmas Lights Cords

So this really isn’t a craft or anything, but it’s a great way to cover up those pesky light cords on your Christmas tree.
String your lights, and if your tree is like ours-fresh from the woods-there’s probably lots of bare spaces. And bare spaces don’t hide cords very well.

Here’s your solution: take some pretty, wide ribbon and fold it over your light cords. Carefully staple the ribbon together. I say carefully so that you don’t accidently staple over the cord. That is not what we’re going for, and it’s really bad. Don’t do this.

  3. Great idea! Wonder if we could extend this to the cord on the floor?...

  4. That's a great idea. I hate how the blue-green of the cords always stands out next to the green-green of the tree. Thanks!
