Sorry if this has been asked/answered or described already... I just haven't found it if it has. My plan is to do an 8 or 12 intelligent strip light mega tree , approx 5m tall. I have seen people using PVC pipeto attach strip light for some trees and packing strap for others although all the packing strap examples I have seen are using strings and not strip. I can get 6m lengths of PVC piping (25mm) but at a cost of around $60 each! ( so getting 8 or 12 lots of 6m lengths is getting pretty pricey just for the bare bones of the tree. So my plan is to use packing strap (blue thermatrap) doubled over for extra strength and attach the strip light to the strapping to make a flat triangular mega tree - hopefully to get a matrix tree looking similar ( although no doubt not as good) as fasteddy's. I plan to run a few horizontal runs of the strap to help stop the strands from twisting. Anyone had any good or bad experiences with this combination of strapping and strip light? Or am I barking up the wrong mega tree?
