Hi, I'm Coleen Christian Burke. And I'm going to show you how to attach Christmas lights to the inside of a window. Hanging lights inside your house will give your room a warm holiday feel. And it's certainly less chilly than hanging them on the outside. You will need Christmas lights and a secret weapon. Plastic clips that attach to the inside of your window frame. They just stick on and they can be found at any hardware store. Best of all, they come off easy and leave no residue. I like to outline the frame of my window and I have most of my clips already in place. This is because ideally you should wait one hour after installing, before you weight on the clip. The way the clips work, is that they attach to an adhesive strip that is sticky on both sides. Put one sticky side to the window frame, like this and wait 30 seconds. While we are waiting, I'm going to slide the rest of my lights into the clips that I installed earlier. All you do is, slide the lights into the clip, moving your way around the frame. I'm working on lights with a green wire because I want you to be able to see them for purposes of demonstration. But if you have white wood work, you want to use lights on a white wire. If you have dark wood work, choose lights on a darker wire. That way, the wire disappears and you're left with a beautiful light. Now that our adhesive strip is set, let's peel the adhesive off the other side and put our clip in place. Just to illustrate, I'm going to slide the wire right in. Remember, normally you would wait one hour. And it's that easy, enjoy.
