1. Pixie Lights

There are many types of cute lights that you can pick out and hang up but there is a reason that people are picking pixie over any other type of light. The main reason is that the light itself is relatively small and you usually get a longer foot range with this type. Another good reason to pick pixie lights over any other type is that the wiring is thinner so you can get the small clothespins and hang up pictures and stuff.
