Hot Glue Vines On Brick and Stone House (High Quality Artificial Vines)

ManLand LandManMay 3, 2013
It sounds tacky, giving how vines damage brick walls in such I think this is a great way for quick Glitz! Of course time and detail need to be paid but I think I just might do it below the window* (it will not harm the brick)
Yes! Give it a shot for the Glitz! Be a Lil risky!
Hell No! What are you thinking, that's what a gypsy would do!

I'd like comments! I'd be so hot on the block if done correctly. Worst case the neighbors make me out to be a skank.

Even if this wasn't a bizarre idea, how long do you think the vines would look nice, before weather turned them into a mess?

Really bad idea, and your ethnic slur is offensive.

I think the poster mentioned artificial vines Not the real thing
No vines were harmed during this comment
But yes. Not a good idea tacky and that's not
Just the glue
Tackiness can be archived by anyone regardless of ethnic origins
You have a nice frontage to your house why make it look tacky
I have never seen anything artificial. Look real

If you wish to devalue your home then go right ahead.

When they fade in the sun and get ripped up in the wind, they won't look so nice. Perhaps you can find a more natural solution. Why not add a window box below the window and put in some real plants?

I think the vines would add visually, but I don't think you need to glue them to the brick. Attach them to a free-standing trellis system. Then you can refresh them easily when they become weatherworn, or remove them entirely if you get tired of them.

I bought plastic(ish) ivy off ebay for about $5/vine (I bought 5 from Hong Kong) to put on a fence to block the view into the neighbours until the real stuff can grow. It is fantastic and does the job. The neighbour didn't realise it was fake until I pointed it out to him about a week ago. Do it (but grow the real stuff too)

ps your picture of the fake ivy is the same picture that was used by my ebay vendor. The stuff that turned up in a post pack matches the image. It has rained a lot since I put it on our lattice.
