How do you hang festive lights on the house?

Gutter clips are a practical solution, offering a convenient and easy-to-install option for attaching lights along the roofline. If you're concerned about renting or lack gutters, weather-resistant adhesive hooks are an alternative worth exploring, providing flexibility in placement.


Consider using gutter-hung icicle lights for a straightforward and visually appealing lighting option. These lights can be easily attached to the gutter, creating a cascading effect that adds a festive touch to your roofline. Start by installing gutter clips along the gutter, then work from one end to the other to attach your lights. Here's a handy step-by-step guide: How to hang festive lights


While focusing on the roof, don't overlook the impact ground-level festive lights and decorations can have on your overall display. Strategically placing lights around the yard and garden can contribute to a cohesive and magical holiday atmosphere. Inflatable decorations are also easy to setup and make the perfect central feature to any outdoor display.


Safety is paramount during the installation process. Utilise a sturdy ladder suitable for the height of your roof and position it on stable ground. Having assistance, especially when dealing with elevated areas, adds an extra layer of precaution. Always follow recommended safety guidelines for ladder usage, and check out this article on How to use ladders safely


By following these tips, you'll achieve a safe and stress-free holiday display and create a festive ambience that extends beyond the roofline. - MitchellMc

Having an Impact

@MitchellMc - I was able to use paper clips when I run out of gutter clips. But what I noticed is Australian sun is brutal and clips last only one use. 

my lights are already up and this is how it looks
