Many decorating blogs suggest using fishing line to hang up outdoor decorations since it can hold a lot of weight and is nearly invisible to the eye. But that can be problematic, too: The nearly clear plastic wire can be hazardous to birds that fly through your yard. While it may be aesthetically pleasing, avoid using fishing line to rig lights, wreaths and other outdoor decor. Birds can entangle themselves in it, or worse, die when they fly directly into the taut wire.
