Indoor Christmas Lights Ideas with a Nautical & Beach Theme

I don't know about you, but I usually can't wait to take my Christmas lights out. One strand of lights is already up and glowing! Like Candle Light, Christmas lights are festive and cozy and I wanted some around for Thanksgiving. So here are a few simple indoor Christmas lights ideas with a beach and nautical theme.

indoor Christmas lights idea
First, a de-light full idea that I featured here: Are your Christmas Lights on? If you happen to have a Wire Basket you could put this together on a side table, mantel or on top of a cabinet.

Rope anything is great for nautical appeal, but Rope Christmas Lights! Who would have thought! The braid is easy to pull apart, Jennifer says, who came up with this brilliant idea. You can hang the strand as seen here or coil it up and have it sit anywhere you want. Click over to see. And check out these 10 Coiled Rope Display Ideas -just imagine them with Christmas lights!

And last but not least. Should you have darling Driftwood Boats, attach Christmas lights to them! Seen at MerMade Designs.

A little FYI: You might want to take off the word verification. I had to do it 4 times before my comment would post. I know most people will not comment when there is word verification. Hope you don't mind me suggestion this?!! KS

Kathy Sue, I know word verification is a pain. I'll probably take it off again..., but you won't believe how many spam comments accumulate every day in my spam folder..., this way they don't get thru. Thanks!!
