    Hi all and thanks for the add.

    Im located in brisbane and since i was a child my father had always gone overboard with the christmas lights on our house and well now its rubbed onto me. Ive got a 4yo boy and want to see hes eyes light up just like mine did.

    Looking inspo and tips on a few things:

    1: Our house is rendered how do i attach lights around boarders of the house etc.
    2: How do i black out sections of the lights so there doesnt appear to be a continues line of lights
    3: Where is the best place t buy lights from ? Any links would be appreciate.


    Kind regards

    Brett

    Welcome to ACL Brett!
    There are a few posts about attaching lights to the house, but there's also some tips and hardware info in this video from one of our Mini expos earlier this year:

    You can always jump into chat and fire off some quick questions too, there's usually someone around.
    Cheers, Graham

    Hi Brett

    Welcome to ACL. Reading the 101 is a great place to start. And if you have any extra questions (as you will), chat and the forums are invaluable. Where in Brisbane are you?

    Nice area. I’m in Albany Creek (currently in Darwin for 2 years) and my in-laws are in Cleveland. Any questions just ask away - guarantee someone here can assist.
