    So this is my area in which to work my christmas magic. Note the nice flat roof for any number of frames and shenanigans! Just unfortunate that viewing area is a little limited by the shrubs on the right.

    Thought I might put arches down fence on the left, candy canes across the lawn, pixels along roofline and down posts (leaving ropelights there too) and break santa up so I can control each element individually.

    Tree on roof is solar atm, but will prob upgrade to pixel pending funds.

    Just my crazy thoughts,

    HAHAHA, just realised tree wasn't even on roof yet when photo taken.
    It's 8' tall and about 20 strands up and down.

    Cheers,

    I have a limited viewing area as well due to the block being quite narrow even tho we are on 2200SqM the frontage to the property is still quite narrow, and the front of the house is quite boring, but having said that I have a fairly big front lawn I can fill with wire frames or boarded frames like the one you have on your roof, or a sleigh even that people can maybe sit in as I have a half circle driveway, in one end and out the other that I may let people walk through depending on my final layout.
