Tiger Christmas Trees

Matt Ludik from Grace Family Church in Umhlanga Rocks, Durban, South Africa, brings us this these tiger-striped Christmas tree set design pieces.

The set design started with a graphic element their graphic designers came up with. They decided to follow this up in all aspects of the services, from the social media, to street banners and the invite cards, video elements, and of course the set design. It really focused on sharp triangle ‘christmas trees’, with simple clean stripes, a little gradient shading, and a nice blue palette.

They designed four sizes of congruent triangle trees, with pine 2×4’s, then covered them with the ubiquitous Coroplast (correx), and then masked off the stripes and painted with rollers and an air compressor.

They lit the trees with cheap and cheerful LED cans, and hung up cold-white LED fairy lights for a little extra festivity.

Apart from the sheer number of trees (across several church campuses) it was a relatively cheap and simple build.

  1. I like your layout. The rows of trees along with the lights above really create a lot of depth. This along with the design on the trees makes it visually simulating to look at. Great job.

  2. What material is put on to of the wood frames?

    • I’m not sure what material they used but we have used a material called corrugate plastic. A 4×8 sheet is around $12 at your local chain hardware store. Its the same material that yard signs are made from. Light weight and easy to cut. Good luck
