    I picked up some strings of 5050 modules from TwoDogLights - http://www.twodoglightstore.com - few weeks ago and decided to make a back lit Beth Star with them.

    First I traced a plastic star I had onto 3/8" ply. I then attached some small pieces of 3/4" to attached the mods too, painted the star, strung the mods, and finished.
    These will be controlled via a LOR DC board.

    Some picture against the house.
    The floods I have will highlight the white face of the star.

    Great work there. You have really shown how backlighting of features is also a great effect. Im sure there are many that will be rethinking some of their elements for this year to see if they can utilize some back lighting, i know its got me thinking.
    Again great work it looks awsome.
