Video of the Day

Run an extra-long string of white indoor lights along the perimeter of the room at the top of the wall where the wall and the ceiling meet.

Secure the lights with thumbtacks or staples.

Purchase several boxes of glass Christmas ornament balls in one color - or in an array of hues such as red, silver, gold and green.

String clear fishing line through the ornament hooks twice, creating a durable, double-stranded attachment.

Cut the fishing line in a variety of lengths, ranging from 4 to 12 inches long.

Hang the ornaments from the ceiling, spacing them equally. Secure the fishing wire to the ceiling with pushpin tacks or a staple gun.

Attach another strand of fishing wire to a crystalline star, miniature disco ball, or Santa ornament. Hang the ornament in the center of the room and slightly lower than the lowest grouping of glass balls.

Pin or staple small sprigs of holly and/or mistletoe to each corner of the room at the point where the walls and ceiling meet.

Tips & Warnings

  • Be careful when tacking or stapling into walls and ceiling. Some stucco-type ceiling materials are sensitive and tend to crumble when tampered with.
  • To minimize fire hazards, unplug all lights when you leave the house and when you go to bed.
