Rope Light Palm Tree

Outdoor lighted palm tree is favorite decorations in coastal areas. And now, its popularity has spread to virtually the entire country. Illuminated palm trees are great additions to your home, patio, backyard or used as Christmas and holiday decorations. Although you can buy lighted palms like tents, it is much easier and cheaper to make yourself a lighted palm tree.

Purchase an artificial palm tree. These are available at any store that sells house decorating fountains. Purchase clear string lights. Although these are easily available at Christmas, many garden stores carry throughout the year. Begin by wrapping the light string around the main branches of the palm tree. You want to start at the top and work your way down so that the electric plugs are at the bottom when you’re done.

When you reach the end of a palm tree branch, towards another branch. Once complete, wrap the branches, begin to wrap the trunk of the palm tree from top to bottom. Continue adding light chains and wrapping them around the palm tree until you reach the base of the palm tree. If there is no plug near where you want the illuminated palm tree to appear, connect an extension cord to the last string of lights. Plug the extension cord into an outlet and enjoy your tree.
