Tip for hanging miniature LED Lights

This could go in to several other forums but I think this is most appropriate.
Decorating a gazebo or a RV or other item that is cloth and metal with those string miniature led lights? Try using bobby pins. They're cheap, easy to attach to cloth and only need to last a season.

Good idea for ultra-light strings.

I used a fistful of ID badge clips from work to attach patio lights around my pontoon canopy one July 4th

Had some high winds yesterday. Just needed to use a few for clips to prevent blowing off. The clips are good idea, but not readily available to most people.

Not hard to find at any office supply, Amazon, eBay, etc. Very strong...but like bobby pins they will rust if left out in the rain.

Bobbie pins are a $1 at the dollar store and only need to stay up for one season. Easy to take down and worry id you lose them. The key words here are cheap and easy to find.

Easy? Are they in the aisle with the combs & brushes? The one with shampoos? Or the one with lipsticks & makeup?
