Last weekend my mom and I spent a couple hours putting lights in our bushes and trees. We wanted some lights on the house but it is a brick home so we weren’t sure how to go about hanging them. Lets just say our first attempt at using some ‘light hanging’ things I bought years ago was a bust despite working on it for over an hour (and using lots of double sided tape). Yesterday the lights all came tumbling down. So last night I went to Google to see if there was a solution out there for our light hanging problem.
It turns out there is! It took some searching but the solution is HOT GLUE! Yep it’s that simple!
Squirt some glue onto the brick, place either the string or the base of the bulb in the glue, hold for a second and move along until the entire strand of lights is on your brick! It took me maybe 15 minutes to hang a strand of lights by myself compared to the 1+ hours it took before with two of us SOOO I opted to hang a second strand while I was at it!
Then when you want to take the lights down you simply gently pull the strand at each spot of glue, then scrap the glue off your brick. No damage done to your brick or your lights!
Now why didn’t I think of that in the first place?! At least I’m sharing this great idea with all of you so you can get it right the first time!j
