  1. I have this saying: "the easiest thing to do is nothing." Most people seem to default to this setting. Sooooooo... I'm going to leave things alone, at least for this season .) But... I'm wide open for suggestions on how to make PlanetChristmas a better place. Please let me know here or send an email to me at [email protected]

  2. Made this up tonight. I took three wire wreath frames. 2 12" for ears and 18" for the head. 50 count blue strand and just zip tied it all up. Plan is to make a bunch more and then "hide" them through out my entire display. We kind of are a big Disney family. I need to get a few to make smaller and maybe one large one for the roof.

  6. This year's addition to my display is Monster's Inc. To give you a little idea of the dimension... the door is 8' tall. My 15 year old daughter painted Mike. The red light, at the top of the door, flashes on and off... as seen in the main picture (off) and the close-up (on).

  12. I would simply repeat and agree with everything already said. I always tell my wife I could never have my display on national tv because my PCers would see all the ideas I’ve stolen from them! Either way, Chuck I hope you realize the help and encouragement your site has provided to a lot of Christmas light fanatics over the years. Thank you.

  14. I came across these general plastics catalog pages. I have never seen them before. Has anyone seen one of these in person or ever for sale? I'm wondering if any survived.

  15. Thought it might be fun to take a look at the most prized Christmas decorations of our fellow collectors. These are some of mine. Some are sentimental (one is from one Grandmother, another is from my other Grandmother) and some are just my favorites. How about yours?

  16. Wow!!!! Please tell us more. How long does it take to set up? How many blow molds? Are you using all led bulbs? This is awesome and the kids must love it 😀

  26. Yes, I have both the 100 count and 50 count minis and they are great, I have heard the 300 count strings work but don't last very long. I have now over 7,000 holiday time mini led bulbs and have only had one small issue. Best bang for your $$ in my opinion

  33. Hello Everyone, I am a long time blow mold and vintage Christmas collector, but new to your group. I recently bought a metal mold to make a new reproduction the Old Empire - Elf sitting on Snowball blow mold. I sadly found it had been bought by a scrap yard I assume for the metal. As we know this was normal when many Blow Mold companies went bankrupt. I have contacted Cado and Christmaslightscreations.com that has some Grand Venture molds about taking the next step to actually create a new version with new paint, as not to be confused with the originals. Does anyone know of other companie

  34. I'm wondering if anyone has an extra crow/bird for the Union Scarecrow that they would like to sell. I know it's a long shot, but I figure if you don't ask you'll never know. Thanks, Donna

  35. I wish they were 3 ft not 2ft, with 2ft blowmolds, I don't like them outside because of the snow. And with LED they stay cold and the snow, doesn't melt. LOL the debate of the LED conversion.

  36. I know when I had the house built almost 4 years ago the HOA was fine. In last few years it keeps getting more strict. This quote sums it up. ”We don't appreciate what we have until it's gone. Freedom is like that.” We are looking out for some land to build another house!

  39. I would feel comfortable saying your set was made by Poloron. Holiday Innovations did make that set and they did not take the Poloron name off a lot of the molds but they did not make them until 1988-1991. Making them that late they would not have used the older cords for the lighting. As for the Empire set, Empire purchased the Poloron molds from PTN (Holiday Innovations) in 1992 and made them under the Empire name. Empire did not make or sell any blow molds with the Poloron name on them. Mel

  40. Mold Craft produced 6 reindeer teams between their openeing in 1947 and their factory fire and eventual sell out to Heller in 1963. Heller coincidentally burnt too in late 1965 or early 1966. In the time Mold Craft was around there were really 2 "eras" of the company. In the early days (1947 to mid 50s) D*ck Wiken was head sculptor. 5 of the 6 Mold Craft deer teams were produces in this time. After he left to start his own company Sculptoris Inc. in the mid 50s, Mold Craft stopped selling items produced from his sculpts. This may have been for legal reasons or simply to offer a new cat

  41. Get a stack of $$$$$ and tons of extra time lol. But for reals, Start by reading what you can find, and look for tutorials on YouTube. Maybe explain a bit what you already know, and what type of display you are trying to build, and we can help with more specific answers.

  44. For that price it would be cheaper to go online and buy an authentic 60s Union or Empire soldier. And that's even with Ebay's scam prices.

  45. One of our local secondary on-air channels cycles through the many years of Home Improvement . Nearly every time one of the Christmas programs airs you can see a variety of blow molds on the roof and at the front door. I would never have noticed that until I came to this site!

  47. Hello everyone! I’ve written a book! It’s the story of a decorator who moves from Florida to Maine and, unfortunately, buys a house across the street from an unhappy elderly woman. As he begins to put up his display she goes ballistic and starts a campaign to shut it down. How the people in the neighborhood, who prior to this really didn’t know one another, come together over the conflict is the heart of the story. I believe this is the first Christmas book inspired by and written for Christmas decorators and, of course, it’s called “The House on Christmas Street.” If you’d like to know
