Wrapping the lights around the hoops was more difficult than you might think. Also, finding the icicles in a mass of wires is like putting a puzzle together. Our eldest grandson is great with puzzles. He would've come in handy today.
Then, tying the hoops together with the idea of keeping everything level while operating in a stout wind, didn't help our chances of success. I also made a big mistake and leaned against the biggest one. (Now, it is our of round....oh well.) I think it turned out sorta cute.
