Get This Look: Red and White Lights Line the Roofline

by | Nov 11, 2021

“My house has eaves beneath the roofline. No gutters and the roof shingles were too wide for the universal clips that you can get from Home Depot or Walmart. The C Clips were just what I needed to get my C9 bulbs nice and straight. I definitely recommend them if your home has fascia or wood eaves.”

We love the classic look of alternating red and white bulbs on a traditional home. This project uses glass C9 bulbs and cord with a clip tailored to work along shingles.

Materials
  

Notes

Commercial C9 bulbs are sold in boxes of 25 so choosing a favorite single color or alternating colors is easy. 
Use one clip per bulb for a sharp line along the edge of the roof. 
Test bulbs on the ground and be sure to order a couple of extra boxes to account for breakage during installation.
