But how do you get your lights on the tree branches to where they are not going to be drooping or dragging and otherwise looking just not so good? The way to actually do this is, is what I call the weave. Basically what you are going to be doing is you're going to be going underneath the branches up and over the branches alternating like so. Back around the back side and you are going to keep that going on, let me demonstrate. Try to identify three branches on your tree. This is a great way to break it down eventually this would become second nature to you. But let's start with three branches with our lights coming in over here on the side. So on the first branch we are going to do is we are going to drape the lights over it and this will have some weight. But then for the next branch we are going to go underneath it. See we are going underneath here where we are weaving underneath. See the basic weave formation, then on the third branch we are going to then go back up on top again. What this will do is it will make like a natural up and down you won't get super straight boring or worst drooping lights. It will also keep your branches from uniformly sagging and drooping at the same time. Luckily branches have like under branches so even if you are going underneath the main branch odds are they are going to get some contact with some of the small all chutes down here. Basically then you are going to keep this weaving going on all throughout around the tree all the way from the bottom to the top. As you get closer to the top the weaves will become shorter. You may actually skip a branch where actually these three cycling need to go in a two cycle when getting that far from the top and the branches are so much smaller.
