Making St Patrick’s Day a little brighter!

by | Mar 17, 2020

Always one to find a project – especially when we are all working and studying at home – David turned the house green for St Patrick’s!

We know that Christmas lights make everyone smile so repurposing them to celebrate our Irish-ness seemed like the thing to do! Consider pulling lights out of your Holiday closet and repurposing them to brighten your block as well.

Get the Look! Materials

You probably already have these at home!

The bulbs. These are traditional glass, incandescent bulbs.

Install cord along the roofline using either magnetic clips David is or with traditional shingle-edge clips.

Get a friend to hold the ladder and to celebrate with a Guinness when the job is done!
