Elizabeth Withers from Lifepoint Church in Fredericksburg, Virginia brings us this organic, woody design.
They created the trees by making a chicken-wire frame and covering it with paper maché. They got a thick mix of glue for the paper maché by using flour, Elmers glue-all, and water mixed together until it was about the consistency of brownie batter.
They created the bases of the trees from old newel posts on top of a piece of scrap board with a screw driven up through the botton. They’re a portable church so they have to break everything down week to week. With this, they could just pop the trees on and off the bases.
The trees and bases costs them just over $100.
They also had a scrim backdrop that worked nicely in between the trees. That cost them about $750.
