How To Hang Christmas Lights Outside Without Nails


When the Christmas season comes, you can expect everyone to be busy decorating homes, preparing for gatherings and events, baking goodies, and spending time with the ones they love. These are just a few of the things that make this time of year so joy filled!  While the goal in the end is to have a great holiday season, Christmas time can quickly become a very tedious process. Christmas trees are brought out, decorations are put up, figurines are displayed, and Christmas lights are placed inside and out of homes. Just imagine the work in order to put up something like that...there is so much to do!

We basically do these things and more because we want to create the essence of Christmas spirit in the air, to be felt by all of those around. Before you get into that exciting rush of putting up trees and throwing those Christmas lights on your house, you have to remember that these things use electricity, and you have to make sure that if this is so, you are still creating a safe environment not only for your family but for your guests as well. This is why we’ve put together some steps to help you when hanging Christmas lights outside your house without the use of nails.

Try Using Gutter Hooks

First things first, you can always try using the basic stuff that is not dangerous or toxic in any way. For example, with gutter hooks you can easily get purchase these from your local store or the market, plus they are very cheap and easy to use. All you have to do is hang up the other end of the hook to the gutter of your house and then leave the rest of the hook on the front for your Christmas lights. You’re good to go!

Consider Using Shingle Tabs

Shingle tabs are those L-shaped hooks that have a base that is usually attached to a surface for full support. Basically, these types have the capacity to accommodate C7 to C9 bulbs, which are actually what are commonly used for Christmas lights. All you have to do is slide the lights and wires under the hook on the shingle and then leave the other side of it with the hole facing upwards. Now to adjust the position of the lights and slide your lights and bulbs into the hole in order to hold it in place.
