Christmas Decorating tip #4

with only 30 days left until most of us put up our outdoor displays.
Here is DECORATING TIP #4: THE PLAN.

From the simpelist display to the most elaborate display. THE PLAN is always a good thing.
The PLAN.... A notebook with drawings or pictures of your display. these pictures and drwaings have a layout of what pieces go where. The Plan also shows how the power cords are run. The note book becomes even more essential when you run computer controlled light boards. Your plan book would now list every channel that controlls your display and how it is run.

For instance, A 20 ft MEGA TREE can hold as many as 32 strands of lights 2 strands per 16 channel computer controlled board. by having that drawn out and labled as to which strands are plugged into which channel.

This would make installation more organized and the installation will go much faster and with less headaches.

Try this. and see if this makes your dispaly installation go much smoother.

I have been watching my recorded tv shows from hgtv of people who go all out decorating their house. I see that most of them do this too. Great idea! I only have a few things but one day I would love to have a massive Christmas display. Great tips here!
