So I decided that my mini-pixel trees were not the best for Halloween so instead of putting them away for a few weeks, I gave them a little dress up ;)

Plastic party table covers over some acrylic light covers from Home Depot and just put them over the current trees I have completed.. Now when Halloween is over I just have to pull off the cover :)

Hi sck1ng looking at doing the same with my 24 trees. I've got balloons for the heads. What did you use?

Inspired by plasmadrive I am in the process of redoing my trees from a spiral to straight pixels like a mega tree.. Gives me more flexibility in sequencing.. I used the same wire frames and used a strip from 1/2" wire fencing and put them pixels in them to maintain spacing and stability. Got one almost done as I want to add a star to the top of it but I need to do some resoldering.

Got 4 of these done.. Think I may have some loose wires in the stars.. They came wired weird from Ray so I cut the wires and put them back together with butt connectors but I guess I should go back and redo them..

Well I had to redo the stars several times as I kept having data corruption for some reason. So I removed the guts of the stars and put 3 pixels in it. Not as bright but no data issues.. Looks better in person than in pictures or video..

Here is the star being redone



And here is the video

Putting them on the lawn tomorrow morning and starting my final setup. Hope to be live by Sunday!
