You don't necessarily have to deface the brick with drilled holes to hang Christmas lights on a brick house. You can secure Christmas lights to the brick with metal clips specifically designed to grip the top and bottom edges of brick. The clips must be placed where the edge of the brick protrudes at least 1/8 inch from the mortar.

Things You'll Need

  • Ladder
  • Brick clips
  • Flat-head screw driver
  • Outdoor Christmas lights
  • Electrical tape

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

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

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

Tape electrical wires to brick with electrical tape.
