How to attach Christmas Lights??

So GF wants christmas lights on the Villa this year.. I do have gutters down the side but not sure how they would attach and stay on. I DO NOT have gutters across the front and I dunno how i would get them across there. Also I do NOT want to drill holes into the siding etc for obvious reasons!


What are some recommendations on how to attach some strings of christmas lights to the TT without making holes? I thought of the adhesive pad with the zip tie hole but i have heard that they do not hold up to the weather/cold...

3M Hooks - stick on and easy to remove.

X2 - Best way to go, multiple styles with hooks will make it easy to use.

I think you'll find that the 3m products are pretty good. If possible select a 3m product designed for outdoors, and thoroughly clean and dry the spot you put them on before sticking them up. I'd use rubbing alcohol.

I hang our thermometer, flag, and some other "wifey" decorations on the side of our TT. I use suction cups with hooks attached. They work like a charm and leave no residue.
