Daniel Reehoff from DaySpring Baptist in Waukesha, WI brings us these low cost light towers.
They’d seen many made with Coroplast, but the lights used to light the towers were a little beyond their financial reach. They’re a “portable church”, so their design had to be easily set up and taken down on Sundays.
They started with 2×2 lumber and built simple boxes that were 16″ x 16″ x 8′ tall. Then they wrapped them with a transclucent material they purchased at a fabric shop (cheese cloth). They decorated the towers with gold ribbon and some decorative leaves. For lighting they used simple and cheap Accent Lights they bought at Menards for $7. They covered the lights with gels to provide the colors they wanted. Total cost for 11 towers was $50 + $77 for 11 lights.
