The other day, when I shared our big (well, technically little) patio reveal, I got LOTS of messages in my inbox with the same question: How did you hang decor on siding?
So, apparently it was worthy of a whole ‘nother post. But it’s easy peasy.

All you need are these vinyl siding clips.
It took some muscle to separate our siding far enough to wiggle them in there, but it was still quick and fairly easy.
They can’t hold 100 pounds or anything crazy, but they have been great so far for holding up this pair of metal trough boxes that I got from Curtis Creation for my herb garden.
To attach them to the hooks, I just used an old wire coat hanger to loop through the screw holes in my boxes, twist, and hang them up.
The little hooks made it really easy to string our outdoor lights to the corner of our house too.
The only bummer is the hooks only work if you have vinyl siding that can be separated. If you have wood siding, that is completely attached to your house, they won’t work.
So far, they have been awesome and haven’t caused any damage to our siding at all.
I’m glad that little wall on our patio isn’t so naked looking anymore, and I can just step out of the back door and snip some herbs from those trough shelves whenever I feel like tossing some into my cooking.
Oh, and I didn’t mention it before but you see our “table” right there with the lemonade pitcher on top? That’s a planter that we use as our rustic “tree skirt” at Christmas. It’s a nice parking spot for that barrel until December rolls around again. Last time I was in the garden department at Lowe’s, there were still plenty of them there.
Do you have any outdoor decorating hacks of your own? Have you hung any decor on your siding before? I’m thinking I’ll end up using these little hooks on other places of our exterior too.
