Cornerstone Creative (via Ben Kolarcik) from Cornerstone Chapel in Leesburg, VA brings us these sawtooth Christmas trees.
Inspired by a wood, laser cut tree spotted at a retail clothing store, they snapped a picture and gave it to their lead graphic designer who replicated the design. Then they submitted it to a local large format printer who can die cut images on either Coroplast and/or thin PVC material. They opted for PVC.
They decided on three sizes. Four 8-foot trees along the back, two 5-foot trees, and two 4-foot trees to break up the symmetry a bit. They suspended the larger trees with fishing line and built bases with spare wood from their last stage design for the 5-foot and 4-foot trees.
Prior to their Christmas Eve services they used their triangle truss to break up the trees and add visual interest.
They always add special layers for their Christmas Eve services of which there were seven this year. They added banners printed at EchoDGraphics with Scriptures designed to match their aesthetic. Then they strung globe lights throughout the entire sanctuary for an open air/immersive feel for the congregation and added additional string lights on stage all programmed to each lighting scene.
They lit each small tree with Venue ThinPar 64 LED lights and added Chauvet COLORstrip LED lights in the ceiling for additional backlight and lighting of banners and large trees.
Their total budget was approximately $2,500.
