Vertical "leaping Arch"

Recommended Posts

What do you call a pole with lights, similar to a leaping Arch but straight up and down?

Where could I find instructions on how to build?

Bellagio Pole?

 

I've included my prop file here, it's 10 seperate light strings, although not RGB just plain clear lights. Hope that helps with the Visualizer. I just wrapped mini lights around a 4" piece of PVC, zip tied them, and drilled holes to run the wires on the inside of the PVC, soldered extensions to the lights, and added vampire plugs at the ends.

Call it what you want I guess.

 

Build it like you would a leaping arch but stand it straight up.

I use 5 of them - 4x 10' and 1x ~18' (inside my 20' tree). 8 channels and 16 channels, respectively. They're just 1.5" PVC wrapped with a 100 light strand of white lights wrapped around each section. Turn them on and off in order, and boom. I splice in an extension to the lead on each one so all the cords come out of the bottom.

Very nice display.

For some pop,

you might add a mega tree or two,

or five, or ten.

Wow! You got 'em.

Again, very nicely done.
