A Step-by-Step Guide to Hanging Christmas Lights on Gutters

Here’s what you need to do to hang Christmas lights on your gutters:

1. Make a Plan

Take some time to examine the exterior of your home and figure out exactly how you want these Christmas lights to look. You’ll also want to measure your home to ensure you have enough lights and find the power sources to plug in your lights.

2. Gather Your Supplies

You’ll need your Christmas lights, of course, but you’ll also want to buy a set of light clips that are compatible with your gutters and the lights you’re using. These clips will make it easy to string the lights and achieve a professional look. Additionally, make sure to have a ladder and someone standing by to help if needed.

3. Hang the Lights

It’s time for the fun part – putting on the lights! You’ll use the ladder and light clips to hang your strings of lights and dazzle your neighbors with your decorating prowess.
