Boucne house effect lights


Recommended Posts

I've managed to sequence the effect properly, but am having problems with the physical build. I've got lights on the roof line in clips, but when I try to hang the icicle lights to the same clips, it throws everything off. How do you set your lights up to get the effect to work properly?

If I am not mistaken and you are talking about the icicle lights, what he did was add a second row of icicle lights to the first about 9" down. I connected 2 sets of icicle lights and hung the second set off the longest strand on the first.

I hope this makes some sense and helps.

What method are you using to hang your icicle lights?

You'll need to have a space between the large bulbs up on top of .your gutter and the icicle lights of at least 5 or 6 inches. They make a clip to snap onto the J channel that is below & behind your gutter. Found them at Lowes last year , but not this year . PM me with your email add. and I can send you a pic of the clips. Hope this helps.
