    I put them over the front windows and then animated them.

    One year, I made a conduit frame over my driveway and covered it with netlights as a canopy. I have also used them as segments in a mega tree.

    I use net lights as lawn cover and hook them to my singing elements- and they go off just like the outlines on the elements do. Or hook them.up to flasher/ mini trees as lawn cover.

    However I don't think I would use them in this fashion if it snowed were I was either.

    I love the roof net, like the griswolds. But I think my wife might kill me then...maybe if I can get enough of them at the after Christmas sales. I can zip tie about 30 sets together and put them on the roof for next year hooked to a controller to make them flash. My neighbors would love me then��

    I hung 24 nets on a vinyl fence (the nets were folded in half length-wise). It makes a nice piano effect, or VU meter, or nice sweeps.

    Here's a Youtube video of one of our songs that uses it. Wizards of Winter uses pinao.

    And What Child is this makes good use of various sweeps.

    I'm not sure if 12 will give you good effect, but you never know.

    At some point I want to buy a lot of net lights and cover my roof and three sides of my house. Then run each net as its own channel.
    2016 - 32 LOR Channels - Roughly 5,000 Lights - 2 Sequenced Songs
    2017 - 64 LOR Channels - 9,373 Lights - 4 Sequenced Songs
    2018 - 64 LOR Channels - Hoping For 10,000+ Lights - 4 or 5 Sequenced Songs

    There is a chain link fence on the left, that has white vinyl privacy slats. We made diamond shapes out of multi-color LED strings. There are 9 diamonds on the fence and they make for nice chase sequences. Is that what diamond shape you were referring to?

    Inside each diamond is what we call an angel bell. Actually there is a Christmas bell with 3 bell shapes that can be animated to look like they are swinging. In one of the bell shapes (usually the left one), there is also a angle wing shape along with the top part of the bell. When the bell shape and angel shape are tuned on together, you can see that we have angels. There are 9 angles in descending sizes.
