Greg Saffles at Long Hollow Baptist Church in Hendersonville, TN brings use this Christmas goodness.
The idea was to create an outdoor winter scene – hence the white trees outside of the windows. The design itself was fairly simple – they went out to some woods behind the church, cut down a few moderately sized trees and painted them white with a Wagner power sprayer. Then they took each tree and supported it using cement in a one gallon paint bucket. The windows were hung from one another using airline cable and were arranged in a curve to make the stage appear smaller. To complete the winter effect on the windows, they took some cheap fake snow from Walmart and frosted the bottoms of them. The trees were lit using Source 4 PAR cans and the windows with Source 4 Ellipsoidals. A general blue/purple wash was also created to give the appearance of a “cooler” atmosphere.
