Go big and bold with colourful bulbs, or opt for glittering golden lights. The smaller bulbs are great for wrapping around tree trunks or weaving through foliage.

    A wreath is the easiest way to fancify your front door. From glamourous gold to traditional foliage, or even DIY pom-poms, choose a style that coordinates with the rest of your Christmas decor.

        How to hang Christmas lights

        1. Measure: Use a tape measure to find out how long your lights need to be. If you're using mains-powered lights, don't forget to include the distance to your power supply.
        2. Check the lights: Before you hang your lights, switch them on to check they are all working. Change any bulbs that are broken.
        3. Put fittings in place: You'll need to buy these separately, but they are easy to find at most DIY shops. Make sure you choose the appropriate fitting for the surface that you are fixing your decorations to. Leave about 1/2 a meter between each fitting, or closer if the lights are heavy.
        4. Grab a ladder: And someone to hold it steady for you.
        5. Hang your lights: Starting from the power source, attach the lights to the fittings. Try to keep an even tension so you get a neat finish.
        6. Switch on: Step back and admire your work. Need to tweak? Make sure you turn off the lights before you make any adjustments.

        Safety tips

        • Don't leave Christmas lights running when you go to bed at night, or when you leave the house.
        • Don't use tacks, nails or screws to hang lights, which can pierce the cable and become electrified. Use insulated hooks instead.
        • If bulbs have burned out replace them right away, but make sure you use the correct wattage bulbs.
