    I must be missing something. Why should it not be opaque? You show the prop with the pixels' LED facing towards the street, I assume. So then it shouldn't matter. Or will the pixels still be partially inside the coro? If so and if you have purchased from HomeDepot.com, which one did you get?

    Edit: Actually, I have to rethink Home Depot. I just checked and the 10mm is $163 for a 3-pack of 4' x 8'. That's like $54/sheet

    Ok, I'm new here, what would you do with a 4x8 sheet of coro?

    You can cut out any number of different props and drill them to accept the lights of your choice. I have made Candy Canes, Tree Top Stars, and Swinging Bells using Coro I have purchased.

    Coro sheets are lightweight, strong, and durable.

    @TomL8345 what thickness of coro do you use? 4mm, 10mm? From some videos I saw the 4mm seem kind of flimsy, especially when fully exposed to the elements (wind). And where do you buy it? At Home Depot 4mm is like $20 a sheet and 10mm is $54.

    I used 4mm for my projects. I purchased several sheets a few years ago from a local Sign Shop, I do not remember what I paid. The candy canes were my own versions of the ones from Holiday Coro. The Topper Stars have a Wire Frame Star that I use to support them from behind. while the Swinging Bells have a piece of 1/2" PVC across the top and bottom and are hung from my house.
