Do not use a staple gun to attach your christmas lights

Well Durh! Sounds obvious enough doesn't it, but judging by the number of old staples around our fascias someone didn't heed the warnings about using those pesky staple guns to fix exterior Christmas lights to their house.

Staple guns are well known for piercing plastic covering and shorting the exposed wires within. We don't want any fires do we? We don't want hours spent looking for the point of the short to fix it either, nor do we want anybody getting electrocuted.

Why not use white or brown masking tape cut into 2x2 CM squares? If the tape is properly attached the lights will stay up all December!

Just a quick tip from us ahead of the weekend :).
