Being lazy, I wanted to find an easier way to hang our Christmas lights than last year. Our house has gutters all the way around, which is a great platform for hanging lights off of. But last year I used a ton of hooks that grabbed onto the inside of the gutter and then held the string of lights. Applying, and later removing, these hooks though is a pain (literally), so I wanted an easier way.By using ubiquitous office badge clips with attached strips, I created an easy to apply hanging mechanism that goes on, and comes off, easy as pie.This works great if you have gutters. You may find a way to get it to work without them, but I guess it would depend on your roof.
