This year I've decided to put huge led snowflakes on the roof that I got from Christmas Done Bright. Here's the dilemma I'm starting to have. How would you attach them to the roof so they don't blow off? Shingle clips? Tie them down? Any thoughts?

I have my flakes just sitting flat on the roof. I have a string on them that loops over the ridge and then clipped to a shingle on the other side. I have gone thru several snow/rain storms with no ill effect.

That's the way I do it too! Never had a problem.

I found that when laying snowflakes flat on my roof, they just looked like a lump of lights due to the angle. I did something similar to MikeZ to prop the flakes on the roof. I cut 1x2 to whatever length worked...for my smaller flakes I think it was just 5-6". Screwed a flat piece of metal from Lowes to the bottom, then zip tied the flakes to a hole drilled in the 1x2. The metal piece slips under the shingles to hold them in place.

I lay them flat on the roof.  I have the standard 4-12 pitch (roof angle) and the roof is made out of corrugated steel.  I then used fishing line to tie them to the ridge cap.

 

I wouldn't know how to prop them up like what you are saying, since the roof is corrugated steel.
