He Stores Christmas Icicle Lights With Sheets Of Pegboard
Storing Christmas icicle lights is a lot easier ever since I converted 4 by 8 sheets of pegboard into icicle light holders. They keep the lights from getting all tangled up. I cut the sheets down to 2 ft. square and use a 1-in. hole saw to cut four connecting holes in the middle toward the top for a handhold. Then I make notches on each side and wrap the cord around and around in them so the icicles hang straight down. I made two other holes spaced 16 in. apart so I can hang the boards from the joists in my garage. I leave the shingle clips right on the lights to make the job easier. Every year I put up about 8,000 lights on my property, so this idea has saved me a lot of hassle. (Pat Prom, 12661 Pioneer Trail, Eden Prairie, Minn. 55347)
