Wreath Wiring Diagrams & Directions
4 (four) strings of lights to wire the wreath. Each string may be up
to 200 lights, e.g., 35, 50, 100, 135 (100+35), 150 (100+50), or 200
(100+100). Make sure you coil the extra wire between two connected
strings so that the last bulb of the first string and the first bulb
of the second string have the same spacing as the rest of the bulbs.
This will eliminate gaps in the lighting.
wiring diagram in Figure 1 should be used when a color change
effect or a smooth rotating effect is desired. The wiring pattern is
simply a number of zigzags going around the wreath. In Figure 1,
8 zigzags are shown for each of the four colored light strings. The
wreath size will determine the number of lights per string and the
number of zigzags per string needed to make a uniform pattern of
lights. If 100 lights were used, then about three lights per leg would
be used. If the light spacing was 4" per light, then a wreath
12" would be covered nicely. For a smaller wreath, say 2' in
diameter, four 50 light strings could be used with 6 zigzags per
revolution and using three lights per leg to cover the wreath.
3 shows a third way to wire
a wreath. By wiring the wreath in concentric circles, an effect can be
created that makes circles appear to shrink as they move toward the
center or makes them appear to expand like a bubble as they move
toward the outer edge (ANIM 1 LIM). By using other patterns,
The whole wreath will expand out then back in like it's
breathing!! (ANIM 5 1 of 4 Oscillator or ANIM 11
Breathing) Another interesting pattern is ANIM 7 Following
Cascade, lights the rings one-at-a-time then turns them of
one-at-a-time. Try different modes for different effects. Have fun!!!
Slow the speed down so you can see the patterns more easily. You can't
harm anything so play around. When you have selected the mode (pattern), speed, and
brightness you want, just let it run for a minute and it will remember
the settings automatically.
