Tiffany Marshall from Gateway Community Church in Webster, TX brings us this cool variety of Christmas trees.
Their set consisted of 20 triangular Christmas Trees.

They painted the frames white and added bases to the bottom. They used materials such as Saran Wrap/Aluminum Foil/Bubble Wrap/Christmas lights/and painted silver stencil with uplighting to create different textured surfaces. They also used LED light strips across the bottom of each tree to change the tree colors. The different materials, when uplit, created very different textures. The trees that Christmas lights were stapled to were put on a dimmer, so they could change too.
They placed 10 trees on each side of the big screen from tallest to shortest. One of the tall trees on each side they placed on platforms that were raised about 3 ft off the ground for added height and layering. They used a lot of material the church had from previous projects that were leftover, so this project only cost them about $500.
