How To: Hang Outdoor String Lights

Before hanging outdoor string lights, measure your space and decide on what type and style of lights you want. Figure out how to power the lights as well. If there’s no outlet handy, consider battery-powered. Next, decide on how to mount the lights. Tress, walls or fences are good options, but you can also buy a tall pole. Install hooks to hold the lights in place, then mount the string lights. Once they are securely in place, plug them in and enjoy.

Key Takeaways:

  • Think about what type of bulb you want, how long the string should be, and what power source to use.
  • If you don’t have enough trees, fences or walls for mounting, buy a pole.
  • Install hooks, mount the lights on the hooks, and plug them in.

“Before getting started, measure the space you’d like to span to establish the length of lighting you’ll require.”
