Dangling Lights

Dustin Blay from Family Harvest Church in Tinley Park, IL brings us this simple but twinkly Christmas design.

They bought 30 strands of LED Christmas indoor/outdoor lights. They were 16 feet in length and they hung them 3 feet in front of their back curtain. The whole set cost about $270.

The rest was accomplished with lighting and Christmas trees.

  1. You know, I have always wanted to do this for a Christmas set but always wondered if it would look tacky… Family Harvest Church made it look good! I may just have to do something similar this year at my church.

  2. I assume the lights couldn’t be dimmed? That’s the only issue I’ve had with them! But it looks brilliant, love the purple.

    • You can dim them using any standard dimmer. We had lights just like this on our Christmas set in 2010. Ran them on a standard 2 channel Chauvet dimmer. Worked great.

    • Sometimes you have to put a “phantom” load on the lights. A 20 watt music stand light hidden behind the set might be all you need. It’s really no big deal. fyi

  3. Actually I have 12 Cyc strips along the back that I daisy chained in and thats how I got them to Dim…
