Get This Look: Classic Incandescent Red, Green, and White Bulbs

by | Dec 10, 2020

We love this traditional installation of classic C9 Christmas light bulbs in white, green, and red. And who doesn’t love a wiener dog inflatable?

For first-time homeowners, this project was simple and economical. A fine place to start.

Installation Tips
 

  • The 25 and 50 foot cords in this configuration are run out from an extension cord in opposite directions (like a T). Since the 25 foot cord is 20 AWH and the 50-foot cord is 18 AWG, they shouldn't be run in series together.
