how many minis for 4th of july flag??

Recommended Posts

I made a 9x15 foot flag in 09....I used pvc chicken wire found at Lowes and I zip tied lights to it. I believe I used about 700 lights for the long stripes at the bottom and about 400 on the smaller stripes at the bottom. I have a channel set up for each blue 'stripe" that corresponds with the red and white stripes on top. The stars are twinkling c9 bulbs. The pvc chicken wire and lights mount to a steel fram that i built. Total cost of investment was about 300 without controllers and 200-300 man hours zip tying

Tom Langley is my customer that put together that display. He should have that information.

Tom, if you hang out around here I would love hear some details about your display too. Specifcally the top of the fireworks burst and the center piece of the spinners in the arches. Are they wire frames welded up or some other material?

Thanks in advance,
