LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- It's that time of year to decorate the house for the holidays.

WDRB's Keith Kaiser gets some helpful tips from Brownsboro Hardware & Paint.

Before stringing lights, check bulbs and fuses to fix bad lights.

Make sure you get the right extension cord.

There is a difference between indoor and outdoor cords.

And follow instructions so not to overload a circuit.

Secure outdoor decorations like wreaths, ribbons and inflatables to prepare for unpredictable weather.

Plus, Brownsboro Hardware & Paint wants to do their part to honor our Veterans.

Wreaths Across America is a national organization which started in 2007.

Its mission: Remember the fallen. Honor those that serve. And Teach the next generation

On December 17th, the goal is to place a wreath for each of the more than 11,000 veterans buried at Zachary Taylor National Cemetery.

Brownsboro Hardware & Paint again partners with Corn Island NSDAR to raise funds to purchase wreaths.

This is the second year in a row Brownsboro Hardware & Paint has helped place thousands of Christmas wreaths on veterans’ graves at Zachary Taylor National Cemetery.

Brownsboro Hardware & Paint will donate a wreath for every wreath purchased, up to a total of 100 wreaths.

The cost of a wreath is $15 through November 30.

100% of the proceeds go toward purchasing wreaths.
