Josh Crossland from Capital City Christian Church in Jefferson City, MO brings us these Christmas caves.
First they cut down trees from the back lot of their property and had a friend at a collision repair center spray them with white paint. Then they attached 1 or 2 of them at a time to a 2′ x 2′ x 1/2″ plywood square. They covered the bases with some white cotton fill from Hobby Lobby ($3 per bundle).
They typically have white or grey walls, but they covered them with black curtains hung on extension poles (ones they already had).
The ice sickle lights were LED and were bought at Menards. They hung them with clear plastic hooks with a quick release, so they wouldn’t damage their walls. The plugged the lights into a dimmer pack so they could dim them.
They bought the snow flakes from Hobby Lobby and hung them with fishing line and white electrical tape. The windows were in the storage of a member’s house. After a thorough cleaning, Josh sprayed them with a frosting agent ($3) which after it drys, looks as though it has ice crystals on it. Then he added the spray snow into the bottom of each pane.
The candles were battery operated ($2 at Wal-Mart) and attached to the back of the window frames with velcro. For the colored lights they used 5 American DJ Mega Bar 50’s (drums, wall and percusion) and 4 Chauvet LED 200b’s (on trees).
