i have taken an idea i read about here and modified it to fit my needs.
i took a 10' piece of 1/2" gray electrical PVC and i formed a jig of a star.
(pics to follow)
i make 5 stars VERY fast just wrapping the heated PVC around the bolts in my jig.
i used a paint gun to heat the bends till pliable. when the star was cooled, i removed the bolts and lifted the star out, placed it on a piece of rebar and air brushed the star flat black (very cheap way to make effect look great at night)
then i sprayed them flat black (to not reflect light)
tomorrow i will string lights on them and run "patch" wire to the base.
i am making 10 of these that will chase around my yard and/or up to the mega tree
pics will be posted soon
