Is there any way of putting Christmas lights up outside without making holes in the wall?

I'd like to decorate the facade but can't figure out how to do it without needing to drill a hole in the wall.

I use [[http://www.3mdirect.co.uk/command-replacement-decorating-strips-1-pack-of-12-strips-1.html?gclid=CjwKEAiAtNujBRDMmoCN46aB8noSJAC7SYv7rR5FCOxrIqbQGFihjRPoEALDB9t719gAt1diECEh-BoCYh3w_wcB Command Strips stuck to the window frames/fascia, but I think I have also managed to get them to stick to brick. Then I take them down again after Christmas.

Ooops, link fail!

Command Strips.

Where do you plug the lights in though? I think I worded my OP wrong- I meant, plugging them in without creating a hole for the leads.

Oh, the lead goes through a window. You can just shut your window on the thin ones.

You can? Oh, that's good. I was worried about them getting damaged if I was to shut them in a window. Thanks!
