You don't have to deface the brick to hang Christmas lights.

The clips must be placed where the edge of the brick protrudes at least 1/8 inch from the mortar.

  1. Position the clip's spring edge at the bottom of the brick.

  2. Push the clip up with a flat-head screwdriver until the top of the clip grips the top of the brick.

  3. Place strands of lights on the clips, starting at the edge of your house.

  4. Tape electrical wires to brick with electrical tape.

  5. Tip

    Check the lights before hanging to make sure that they are in working order.


    Avoid using lights outside that are intended for indoor use.
