Hey guys...

 

So I'm decorating my very first house ever and I'm using LOR for the very first time ever as well. I'm coming along but my dilemma at the current moment is trying to hang some RGB Dumb Ribbons along the edge of my concrete porch. The house is brand new and I don't want to drill any holes in it yet.

I am hoping that with all the veterans on here someone can come up with a great idea. I've attached a picture of the porch and drawn lines where I was thinking of running the lights. Thanks for any help you can provide!!

I agree with Portcity, Command adhesive makes some pretty good stuff.  I have used "invisible" duct tape before.  Personally, I would be tempted to frame out what you have outlined. If the frame extended to the ground, you wouldn't attach it to the porch.

I have a bunch of dumb strips mounted to brick that is used year round. I am using the dumb strips that is in the silicon tube. I use silicon sealer to glue the strip to the brick. The silicon sticks to the silicon tube just fine and also the porous brick very well. I've had some in service for several years and it never came loose. Gets used every night.

You're working around steps and any bulky support might be a trip hazard. So I would recommend using zip ties to flat aluminum stock (home depot sells) and maybe coming up with some sort of temporary support to hold the aluminum stock in place.  (I like aluminum, more expensive than steel, but doesn't leave any rust stains)
