Christmas DIY – How to Make a Floating Christmas Tree!

For those of you looking for ways to make your Christmas Tree “cooler”, you might want to try making this floating Christmas Tree.  Actually, the Christmas Tree is hanging from the top but still, this might be a great mod to make more room for your Christmas gifts at the bottom.

I’m no Clark W. Griswold Christmas light fanatic, but I do like the look of a nicely lit window during the holiday season.  The problem is that in order to look nice you have to hang each light on a separate clip.   So here is how I made some outdoor lighting window frames that are lite, strong and easy to put up and store away.
