Attach Christmas Lights To Brick Walls With Hot Glue

Brick walls and archways can be difficult to attach a string of Christmas lights to, but with the help of hot glue, your lights will go wherever you want them.

This simple trick is a staple of professional Christmas light installers because it works fast and is easy to remove.

Lay out your string of lights to ensure you have enough length to work with. Start at one end and apply hot glue along the side of the base of the light, then press it firmly against the brick. Hold it for about 10 seconds, which should be enough time for the glue to cool and the light to adhere to the brick surface.

To remove the light, simply shake the base a bit which will release it from the brick. To re-apply the following year, just pull off the old glue and start again.
