Hi All - We have some beautiful outdoor string lights which are, unfortunately, not cheap. These things cost more than they should but they sure look nice. We have laughingly been told that if we ever sell the house we should have night showings as the atmosphere outside is really special. Well, through an accident with some hedgers - one of the wires was cut straight in half. The wire is similar to that of Christmas lights. Now, I am pretty good at rewiring things (basic). I am really hoping that I can peel back the rubber coating and reattach these somehow. Is it possible? Will it be safe in the rain? Replacing this strand will not only be expensive but VERY labor intensive as we have ivy/etc that has grown around it. Thank you for any suggestions.
