Wind Christmas Lights Around A Hose Reel

Use a hose reel to store Christmas lights for easy, tangle-free installation and storage 

Wind Christmas Lights Around A Hose Reel

To keep your holiday lights from getting tangled and to make it easier to string around your yard, roll about 30 strings of lights onto a portable hose reel that has wheels and a handle. Pull the lights around your yard and roll off as many as you need. 

For storage simply roll the hosereel into a garage or shed. Cover with a garbage bag for added security.
