    Line your walkways with pre-lit trees and faux poinsettias from A.C. Moore. Place your trees and flowers in clusters or staggered lines for a more natural look.

    Craftologist Tip: Use zip ties to keep decorations tied down when the weather outside is frightful! Attach lights and garland to banisters and fences without marring the railing with nail marks. After the holidays, simply snip the ties off with scissors.
