thats the way to affords $1000s of dollars worth of lights lolscamper said:I love this hobby... We scrimp and save and use second hand junk from anywhere we can find to put together a prop...
Then add $1000 worth of lights to it.
I am not sure what quality that pole is, but most I have seen are fairly light weight aluminium. I would be wary on the height you go with that as once you put these altogether they get very heavy.gerry said:Am using an extendible pool cleaner pole into a hole in the ground to adjust the height which is just over 3 m.
Not sure if I will use this material as the final outcome, but it will at least do for now. The tree is 32 * 25 strings.
When u folded back the black strips over the metal triangular thing for the lights (I have the same bulk buy) , did u use zipties into the hole for the folded part ?
I too used an old trampoline, but it was a square one so I only used the frame and cut bits off as required.
the frame was designed to pull apart so the ends would slip inside the next section which made it ideal to use for the pole and topper as it could all slip together and then pull apart for storage.
