How to Hang Christmas Lights From the Ceiling

Lights used as decoration during the Christmas season brighten spirits and add a festive ambiance. They can be seen on trees, in shopping malls, indoors, outdoors and even hanging from ceilings. In the past, lights had to be attached to walls using a hammer and nails, which often left unsightly holes that needed to be patched up once the lights were taken down. New technology allows people to hang lights from their walls and ceilings without doing any damage to their home.

Climb the ladder and remove the tape from the hook. Secure it to the ceiling. Repeat this process until all hooks have been placed on the ceiling.
