This was the result of our first attempt at a display with very little time as it was already December 21. The candles are missing from this picture as they weren't done yet until the following day.
Everything turned out great, except for making the mega tree too short at 12.5 feet. I will have to redo the section of pole in the ground and make it taller next time. That way I can bring the strands closer together, as the spacing was way too much in between. Would rather not trim the strips down for each strand, as you never know how much snow there will be. And if it runs to the ground, well the snow would cover up some pixels.
