Wow its a bit quiet in here!! Im working on a project and could use a bit of help, and you guys are just right people for that. :!con_p_smile: Im trying to make some awning lights for my fifth wheel for an event we are going to. I have a strand of white christmas lights and Im hanging mini 'red solo cups' on them, problem is they are flipping every which way..... and Ideas to stop that? Thanks!!!!

You could line the inside lip of each cup with pennies or nickels or gold bullion (anything small and weighty) -- and then cover them with a white strip of paper so they are concealed. The added weight will encourage each cup to point toward earth (good 'ole gravity). Will that work?

Another option is taking a long strip of wood that you can glue to each cup or even make two slits in the cups and slide the piece of wood through the slts. Should be sufficient room for the wood and the bulb. Most lumber places have flat trim moulding that should fit the bill.
