This year I decided to do something I’ve wanted to do for years. Put up year-'round lights on our house. So I spent more money than I should have and bought some lights. I got 3 strings of them. One for the roofline, one for one window, and one for another set of windows. So, I started small and did the smaller window. I found some crappy light holder things at Home Depot. They were… okay. The result was this:
Pretty enough. But eh… a bit messy.
So I looked for some better light hangers out there. There kinda aren’t any great ones that I could find. What to do… what to do… Oh, right! I have a frickin’ laser! So, I quickly made a couple of measurements and made this totally simple, but totally effective “device” out of draftboard as a test (or I might even keep it and see if it lasts).
And here it is in practice:
It simply press-fits right into place!!! Nice part is, you can’t even see the lights from inside when they’re on!
And here’s the ultimate result of that window: (Sorry I didn’t have them in a cool color mode on this pic.)
Evenly-spaced, organized lights!
