    This year I have replaced all my dumbrgb minitrees with pixel trees. Therefore I now have 165m (33 x 5m) of dumbrgb strip.

    Needing some ideas on what to do with it?

    Cheers

    Give it away as a prize

    or

    completely cover your lawn with it in sections like large piano keys

    or

    add it to your neighbour's display

    just a few ideas for you

    How about a dress or suit you can wear. Battery operated. It's about the only thing you haven't done... :D

    A better idea is to offer it to your nagging neighbour across the road with a note, 'if you cant beat them then why not join them'

    Run the strip along both sides of the road so that then you would make those annoying bright street lights redundant and the council could then switch them off, especially around Xmas [emoji1]

    One idea ive used in the past with excess strip is to use it for traffic management and signage so it is lit and clear so people know where to go, I just used cheap rechargeable 7.5 amp/hour 12vdc batteries which seemed to last 2 nights with a length of strip set on white. I would then just recharge them over night with a car battery charger.

    Thanks Eddy, theres probably well and truly enough signs for traffic management given we use (and pay) for a company. Great ideas though.
