Easy way to Light Christmas Houses

I have tons of Christmas Houses.  But, this year I am going small on the decorations. I just don't want to get them out and put them away.  I did decide I needed a few out here and there.  But, I hate lighting them, the cords, the tangles.  I came up with a creative way to easily light them with just plain Christmas Lights.  Plug in, stick in the holes and move on.  Yes, you will see a few random lights here and there, but if you put snow around or as I usually do (white tulle) it will cover the extra lights and give it a nice glow.  I just haven't gotten to the fabric store yet.  You can do white lights, I had blue, so blue it is.

In my wine room, I did red one.  Again, I need to get some white tulle for snow, yes tulle like on wedding veils, it looks amazing, try it.
These houses got red lights.  Next year I may have to put all ---- afraid to count--- of the houses out.

I have a range of houses everything from Department 56, to Dickens Village, to Hobby Lobby ones, and I mix and match and love them.  Again, maybe next year all tons of them out, but this year, relaxing and small.  Enjoy.
