    I just bought three packs of 18ft red rope lights from Home Depot.

    I was still trying to decide on white or red.

    I finally decided on red.

    The only bad thing is that on the package it says you can't cut these lights.

    The one's I bought from Home Depot were a little more expensive, but you can cut them at 12" intervals, or string sets together for longer runs. I put them along the top of the wall behind my HT, with a 3" wide band of oak spaced away from the wall a couple of inches to shield them from view. It creates a great indirect lighting scheme.

    I thought it was 18" intervals. I think there are dashed lines where you can cut it either way.

    That is a good price, I'll go check it out.

    This is not the rope lighting that you cut from a spool.

    This 18 feet rope lighiting comes in kit form.

    The package is labeled:

    Home Accents rope lighting

    The Home Depot sku 842822 is on the back of the package.

    Also, I noticed that the Atlanta corporate office is listed on the back, so I guess it's package specially for Home Depot.

    The cost is $3.98 per 18 feet package.

    They have clear, red, green and blue.

    I was going to wait until Xmas, but I'm scared that I wouldn't be able to find the color that I want.

    Maybe I'll check back on the 26th and see if they have marked the price down less than $3.98.

    Also the Home Depot and Kmart rope lights come with plastics mounts that are already together.

    Target's and Walmart's, you have to snap two pieces of plastic together.

    I had a very hard time with the Target and Walmart brand and took them both back.
