Jan Hansen from Cedar Ridge Christian Church in Lenexa, KS brings us this set using tinsel conduit trees and Ikea stars.
The trees were made from electrical conduit and 4×4 plywood. They basically made tepees out of them. The top of the tree had a 3-4 in piece of conduit that screwed 6 pipes of the same length conduit into. They used 8ft, 10ft, 12ft and 14ft. In the plywood base, they drilled six holes in the shape of a hexagon. When they stood the tepee up, they secured the bottom of the conduit through the holes with a screw.
From there, they wrapped them in tinsel like you would Christmas tree lights. In the bottom of the trees, they placed a single LED par. They also placed an LED behind each tree to be able to get a 2 tone effect on the trees.
They also hung stars that they purchased from IKEA.
They made 5 trees and spent $140 on tinsel. The conduit was donated. The stars were $15-$20 each (depending on the size).
