Here’s a perfect stage design for an intimate setting brought to us by the team at Crossroads Fellowship Church in Berea, KY.
To create the stage design they bought 170 candles from a local candle outlet. They cut 2×4 lumber just long enough for each candle to sit on as a shelf. Then they mounted these pieces of wood to some 4×8 sheets of plywood with wood screws through the back.
They used three full sheets of plywood on each side, with the center sheet mounted about 10 inches in front of the other two. This provided some shadow and depth to the design.
The tables up front were regular coffee tables with a black bed sheet over them. The candle stands on those tables were made from 4×4 posts cut up and mounted to a plywood base with screws. They hot-glued all the candles down for safety.
Everything was painted flat black and hit with some low level natural light from Par56 cans.
