Red-Berry-Light Garland How-To
1. Bundle Bulbs. Plug together three standard 33-light strings to make one long strand of red pearl lights. Use small elastic hair bands or rubber bands to bundle groups of three or four bulbs neatly, leaving a single bulb between each cluster.
2. Secure Strand to Garland Secure strand through rubber bands to garland (ours is a 12-foot length of white pine and cedar) with floral pins or with short lengths of floral wire bent with pliers to resemble hairpins, and conceal the cord amid the evergreen boughs.
