Jesse Snipes and Mark Edmondson from Capo Beach Church in Capistrano Beach, California brings us these Christmas trees for their stage.
Their design inspiration for this backlit Christmas tree scenery came from several churches including Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, CA, Grace Church in Camas, WA, and Lake City Community Church in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. The trees varied in height from 9 feet to 16 feet and were all made of stained 1/2″ plywood ripped into different widths then staple gunned onto a 2×4 or 2×2 post as the trunk. They used patio string lights with G40 bulbs to string behind the trees then stapled bulbs peaking out through the gaps. Aside from the prep work staining and cutting the plywood, the entire assembly and lighting only took 2 days with a handful of amazing volunteers.
