    OK so Cousin Tuppet finally came through on our design of a 3D star to put on top of our turret. Bit late but as they say.... He welded this from 6mm steel wire. Nice job but wobbles a bit when standing.

    Now we need to decorate it with LED's. Looking for suggestions

    It's bigger than Tuppet. She can just touch the top!

    And Here's Tuppet installing our 3D star. Did not fit so good on the turret so mounted above our front door.

    Oh and it looks great. Has two RGB Tuppet stars in the middle, RGB strip around the outside and led strings wound around each arm.

    Brother Tuppet has taken some pics tonight with star running so will add these some time

    That'll look even better! Nice how you kept the strings of non-pixels too.

    Not trying to hijack your thread but where did you get those all-black pixels?
