Cookie Cutters

AJ Parker from Lakewood Baptist Church in Gainesville, GA brings us these cookie cutter nativity figures in front of a starry night.

To create the nativity silhouettes they used 1/8″ plywood lit with Chauvet Color Rails.

They created the wall of stars behind the set using a large 1/8″ plywood wall with hundreds of holes drilled into it. They painted the wall black then blasted light behind it from four 500 watt par cans and 8 Chauvet Rain 64 LEDs. The wall was 10′ high by 24′ wide.

On the back side, they had to create a “ceiling” with black fabric to keep all of the light from spilling out over the top.

  1. I was thinking of taking this idea and using foam board intead of 1/8″ ply wood. Just an awesome look!!

  2. Really like it! thinking about doing something similar this year. AJ, how hot did the 500watt par cans get behind the wall of stars, was that an issue?
