This design is lots of work but mega payoff. Peter Good at Glad Tidings Assembly of God in West Lawn, Pennsylvania brings us this drizzly masterpiece.
Peter took sixteen 2″x12″x16′ boards from Lowes and cut them down to 4 feet long. He then ran them through the table saw, cutting them into 8 pieces for a about 480 pieces. He then painted the pieces with a gallon of “Barn and Fence” paint ($13).
Then he drilled a 1/2″ hole in each end. He hung them with tons of clothing line (from Dollar Stores) at 2, 4, and 6 foot sections. The pieces were connecter to one another randomly and hung 4 to 5 inches apart. He covered the back wall that measures 25 feet high and 45 feet across.
To light the precipitation he used 3 LED bars, 4 LED can lights on the floor, and moving head color changers to fill in up top. The 2 “chandeliers” were constructed using the same thought. He took lattice and hung it from the ceiling.
