  1. That looks really good! Brian - what are those little brass colored dots on the sign? And what did you make your snow out of? Sculpey?
  2. Let's see everyone's North Pole! Whether it's store bought or DIY. Here's the one I just made for my display this weekend.
  3. Seeing so many cool things on 2020's show. This guy was creating ridges on his DIY giant candy canes with a propane torch... I'm gonna have to look into that! Another family created a frozen mountain by covering one of their cars with plastic and lights and tule and Lord knows what else. That's a really good idea if you have a car in the driveway that you don't usually drive, cover it and use it as a prop!
  4. Congratulations, that's amazing!
  5. That's a great idea Slankard, that's exactly what I'll do should I need to. My problem is solved then, so excited, not only will the blue be gone, but I can take out or tape over some of the white lights too so that the lights don't look so linear. I want a random look for the lighting under the "snow" and I think this will accomplish that. Thank you so much guys!
  6. Okay here's the deal, my display has 7 sets of blue & white LED net lights, it's not what I wanted, but it's what was available and I'm trying to make it work. I want to remove all of the blue bulbs and leave their sockets empty. Will an empty socket break the circuit and cause all of the lights in the net to not work? I only want the white lights in the nets to work. I obviously have no clue how LEDs work and googling has not been fruitful thus far. Photo for reference of my icy disco hell.
  7. Those look great! And thanks for sharing your bulb journey with us, definitely helpful.
  8. So many cool things! Love the backdrops of course, opens a whole new realm of ideas for me! And the candles on your patio rail are really neat, looks like you made those yourself! I've never seen that anywhere, really neat.
  9. That's a good idea! I am at the very least going to suggest to my neighborhood group that we should organize an outdoor decoration scavenger hunt just like the ones people were proposing when Covid first started. People add one of their unique outdoor decorations to the scavenger hunt list and the kids have to ride around and check the item off their list.
  10. Sometimes coming up with gift ideas for people can distract us from my own personal favorite part of Christmas... making magical outdoor displays to awaken everyone's inner child. So I keep a back up list of easy gift ideas for people so that I don't have to stress too much about what I'm going to get for those few family members that are hard to shop for. Let's list easy gift ideas! I'll start. Dried sausage Waterproof socks Motion sensor activated night lights Vehicle headrest purse hooks Candles (leather scented for the men, anything that smells like pine t
  11. I kind of had a similar experience. Joined a FB "Christmas Decorations" group and all it was was boring people posting pictures of their Christmas trees. Quickly got out of that group and decided I'm just gonna stick with this place. Merry Christmas to you as well!
  12. Didn't have much time to decorate the yard for Halloween. I spent most of my time making the dragon Covid candy tube. Correction, I spent the most time trying to attach glowing "eyes" to the dragon, and they still fell off 3 times during the evening.
  13. About 5 years ago I was watching some random Christmas light video and in the background I saw SOMETHING that looked like a glacier/iceberg. Not a realistic white snowy looking iceberg but an icy blue form and from that point on I developed a slight obsession with trying to make one. The video was no help, it was only in frame for about 3 seconds and was very far away. So I've been trying all kinds of weird stuff for the past few years, and they all looked like crap. This year I started looking for inspiration from church service backdrops and I saw something that I thought could work. Th
