Flakes-a'Falling-Stage-Design

Flakes a’Falling

Jay Wilde from Quarry Rock Church in Dell Rapids, SD brings us this winter wonderland of a stage.

Jay wanted to do something new and fresh, being a newly hired pastor, for Christmas. Being a small church, they have a limited budget for new things. But this project cost totaled right around $50.

Materials used:

  • Foam tag board for the snowflakes
    He made stencils using copy paper taped together
  • Cluster foam stuffing
    Hot glued onto strands of fishing line for the snow that looks like it’s falling, which were attached to wooden dowels, then screwed into the ceiling so he could reuse them because it took a long time to hot glue all the snow
  • Regular fluffy stuffing for on the floor

They only had 4 LED cans, so he used those to light up four columns of the falling snow. To give a little different effect, he programed the lights to be blue, but alternate a light turning to white and back to blue (sort of a very slow flash of white), programming from left to right the pattern 1, 3, 2, 4, repeat.

  1. How dod you make the black background?

  2. How is the background made? I need a black background for a star scene I am doing for the church Christmas play……is it cloth ?

    • That’s black cloth. It’s a thicker material that we were able to use bigger hooks that screwed into the ceiling and hang the cloth on that

      • Do you mind me asking what color gels you have here? The blue?

        • We just have 4 LED cans, no gels needed. What I did was program a chase so that they were all blue, but then in a pattern going from far left, middle right, middle left, far right, I had them flash white just to offer a little difference every once and a while.
