Mrs. Fixit: Zip Ties

December 07, 2008

Zip ties are strong and they hold securely without damaging so that they're the perfect temporary fix.

Thread a zip tie through the back of a bow and secure it around a wreath, this will keep the bow in place through all sorts of wind and weather.

A zip tie also makes a great hanger zip it into a loop on the back of even the heaviest wreaths for a safe and sturdy hanger.

Zip ties are the perfect tool for securing garlands to banisters and fences. They wrap easily around the posts or spindles and hold tight.

They will also secure ornaments or other decorations easily to a wreath or garland. If your zip tie isnt long enough just attach a few together and make them the size you need.

Use zip ties to secure light strands to your wreaths or garland, you can also use them to organize and hold together all of your wires for your holiday lights so they blend easily and aren't a tripping hazard.

A nail clipper is the perfect tool to clip off those little tails. I'm Mrs. Fixit and it's just that simple.
