Need a new look for the Christmas tree this year? Ready to spice up those plain ol' lights? Have a bunch of empty shotgun shells that you're keeping for no reason and now would be the perfect time for a handy project?

All you need is a few extra minutes, a strand of lights and some empty shotgun shells to give yourself the finished product of "redneck Christmas lights."

Just like the one above, there's a bunch of videos online that show different ways to put together your strand of shotgun shell lights.

Do you have any simple and handy projects to share for the holidays?
