Dan Moran from Cross Mountain Church in San Antonio, TX brings us these awesome words that remind me of the logo from Halo (video game).
They built this set for a night of prayer and worship that they call Elevate.
They decided to spell out the word “elevate” in large letters and have them back lit.
They started with 4×8 sheets of foam board. They made two letters per sheet. Using an overheard projector they blew up the letters so they could be traced on the boards.
After cutting out the letters they used transparent red wrapping paper to create the red inset in each letter.
Then they mounted the letters to a base made from 10′ 1″x10″ boards. This provided a stable base. A firm wire across the top of the letters kept them aligned.
Finally, they used 7 5 1/2″ clamp lights to back light the letters. Then they added a little fog and, voila!
They spent about $140 on this project and all supplies were bought at local hardware and craft stores.
