We are setting up the backyard for a wedding reception and have strung quite a few twinkle Christmas lights running along the fence, etc. We've been cautious and haven't over done hooking them into each other. There is one string's end that is near a patio table that would work great as a plug in for a digital picture frame..is it ok to do so or will it blow the twinkle lights ? THANKS for info.

RE: will it blow a circuit ?

It may be OK...

Depends on what type and how many twinkle lights..

L.E.D. ? or older style / mini, regular, etc ... ?

Usually the mini-strings have a built-in 3A fuse...
so the total of all the strings (and picture frame)
should be 3A or less.

Check what type of fuse it has and go get a few replacements ...
