Whoville Trees


Dean Stelow from Northbrook Church in Richfield, WI brings us these Christmas trees straight from Cindy Lou Who in Whoville.

This Christmas design consisted of 20 4×8 sheets of corrugated plastic, large buffalo snow blankets, bases and pipes used for pipe and drape (rented), Gorilla tape, white pvc tape, and 12 LED lights (rented).

The trees were traced on corrugated plastic using a graphic projected with an old overhead projector. They were then cut out using utility razors. The seams were taped together using clear packing tape on the back and white pvc tape on the front. They were taped to the pipes with Gorilla tape. The pipes were then placed on 35lb metal bases. Trees with light behind them were painted on the backside with white interior paint to prevent the shadows of the pips and tape being seen.

Then they ordered a large snow blanket online and added gobo snowflakes around the room. Awesome!

  1. This looks amazing! Keep up the great work for the Kingdom of God. Phenomenal job!


  2. Easy alternative to a snow blanket: polyester quilt batting. It’s easy to find, relatively cheap, and inherently fire retardant!
