    I have sorted out what I will be doing for the front of the house, I just need help with the side fence.

    and this is what I did last year.

    The Merry Christmas has its own controller and is multi colour.

    Now that I am going all out on RGB I was wondering what I could do to the fence, or should I just put the Merry Christmas up again as it did look good. If I do, then there is still room on the fence towards the front of the house for something else.

    I have heaps of Dumb RGB left over so could do something with these.

    Thanks

    You have a fence that is begging for a large matrix

    I did think of a matrix but that would cost way too much money as it would need to be big, any other options?

    What about some different shapes out of corflute, using the dumb rgb to light them?

    I reckon the writing looks good. Makes it a bit personal. Could be fancied up though if it was surrounded by some candy canes/stars/other shapes as suggested by others.

    Could go to town on the roof too.

    A matrix is a must on a fence like that! :D Check out my Display in the gallery as I have a 5m matrix as I have a fence also.

    I also like the idea of some coro shapes. Eddy's candy canes, stars, stuff like that, and use the dumb RGB's to light them up.

    Have a look in the video links at one of Bevo's displays in 2012. His roof could be your fence. Amazing stuff.

    I would put a different face panel on each one bit like a chorus

    I also reckon some coro shapes would look very Chrismassy and good for dumb RGB. Candy canes, stars, bells etc.
