    Cheeky Christmas sign!

    Save yourself the hassle of looping your lights around your entire tree (especially if it's backed into a corner) and just focus on the front. This zig zag shape will make it look like you made it the entire way around.

    Twisty "gear ties" are chiefly meant to corral cords — but they also make it easy to hang garland from railings (plus, they look kinda fun to use!). And since they come in a variety of colors, you can choose the one that best matches your railing or garland.

    We were skeptical of this trick at first, but apparently even the pros use it. Use hot glue to temporarily attach a string of lights to the outside of your home. But you shouldn't use this method on just any surface — hot glue will cause paint to peel off and cause some stucco to melt — it's most often helpful on sturdy brick. (We also bet that light manufacturers wouldn't necessarily recommend putting hot glue next to their wires, so try this tip at your own risk).

    No seven years of bad luck for you! Nifty Command hooks have sticky backs, so you can attach them onto the front of your mirror without having to worry about breaking the glass.

    Here's how to hang a wreath on a ribbon without an ugly hook messing up your whole look: Put the hook on the back of the door instead of the front. Then, loop the ribbon onto the hook and over the door. This way, the front looks seamless, and the bow on the back is a cute little touch, too.

    Binder clips offer a handy way to hang lights on the outside of your house. The color blends into the dark roof and the clip design makes it super easy to hang and then take down at the end of the season.
