Garrett Walker from Bayside Community Church in Bradenton, FL brings us this dotted masterpiece.
They borrowed the idea from Todd Bougher–using children’s ball pit balls. The strung them together and hung them off axis to create their backdrop. They special ordered “Pearl” colored balls from BallPoolBalls.com.
They used a soldering iron to burn 2 holes (top and bottom) in the balls. Then they threaded a string through with a straightened clothes hanger. Then they threader a 4″ drinking straw on the string before adding another ball. (This kept the balls evenly spaced.) Then they secured the ends of the string with a large knot to keep the balls together.
They mounted LED’s on the top and bottom of the strings. Because the balls are round, if you use a different color downlit from uplit, you can see both colors on each ball.
The whole backdrop cost around $500.
