Howdy wahlann,


Welcome to The Home Depot community and thanks for a question that I get quite often. So here are some ideas and options that you might consider.




1)These light clips are my favorite because they can be mounted on the gutters and for your purpose, it can clip under your gutter guards. The added bonus is that they can hold just about any type of christmas lights you can think of.


You can check out the hooks in action on this little link.


2) Another option is to install tea cup hooks in your eaves and hang the lights on them. Of course this would be a permanent item hidden under your eaves. The big plus is he lights are protected from rain and sun under the eaves.


3) Almost the same as tea cup hooks is using a staple gun. However, I've ruined many Christmas lights when the staple cut the wire and all my work was lost. This option is also makes removing the lights difficult because each staple has to be removed by hand.


Happy lighting,
