    Bunnings 30cm solar ball

    Bunnings have a big solar light around 30cm which would be easily made into a pixel. They are our version of the really big light that the US people can get. Similar to these but only $15. https://www.bunnings.com.au/lytworx-solar-colour-changing-led-ball_p4352350

    Mega Tree star

    Hi from NZ

    Re: Hi Welcome to ACL Shimmer, it's great to see that you have dove in deep & getting stuck right into making a display. If you keep going at this pace you will be blowing the big guns out of the water straight up.
