Hack a work light (the right way)
One more way to have pretty lights in your yard without going to the trouble of stringing them is to make your multicolored spotlight burnish on your house. You have to do a work light from your garage and 10 minutes of work.
It’s significant to note that you should only use small LED work lights. Other work lights will get boiling and may become the reason of fire.

Here is how to make your Christmas spotlight:
- Compute the lens of the work light.
- Cut a piece of color highlighted cellophane or colored plastic wrap (you can purchase it or color it with permanent markers) the same size as the lens.
- Put the cellophane or colored plastic wrap above the glass and tape the edges down with airplane tape. You could utilize a particular type of tape, but airplane tape is bright, sharp and brawny. It looks good and will last through moisture.
- Put the work light on a patio chair, a 5-gallon bucket or a stump, just to keep it off the ground, and turn it towards your house. It will burnish a colorful light onto your house
- If you want some more pizzazz, cut a star or snowflake out of black paper and glue it to the core of the cellophane. Your hacked light will burnish the image onto your home.
If you still feel like too much effort, get a Star Shower Laser Light. It’s the similar concept as the light work hack, without the hacking. Just purchase it, plug it in and turn it toward your house. This is the just incredible last-ditch alternative if you have a short time.
