I wanted to trim out my roof line with Christmas lights but didn't want to put up a million clips and spend my whole weekend doing it.  So here is how I made some lite weight Christmas light holders.

Step 1: Supplies

Here is what you will need
- Coroboard 4x8 sheet (optionally painted)
- Drill with bit
- sharp knife
- C7 lights any color
- Zip ties

Anyone know a good place to get the coroboard?&nbsp; I checked Home Depot and Lowes, but didn't see it there (unless I missed it).<br />
Try a sign shop.&nbsp; They might even have some scrap pieces.<br />
great idea... heres one to make it even easer&nbsp;remove and install &nbsp;velcro to hold it up at both ends wide strip will do and they are weather resistant.
Good job. I'd considered using vinyl J-channel with the bulbs standing up, using the nail slots to hang on the facia and securing the bulbs in place with a glue gun if they're not tight. <br />
Thanks.&nbsp; I&nbsp;considered using the J-channel but it's a lot heavier and more expensive.&nbsp; <br />
Great idea,one thing I did also is to run a cord from inside the attic/or under the soffitt that way you dont have the extension cords etc hanging in front of the house<br />
its the corrugated plastic stuff used for signs and things<br />
I&nbsp;take it coroboard is corrugated cardboard?<br />
Or is it that plastic stuff in the same pattern?<br /> <br /> L<br />
