Looking for some snowflake advice...

I am looking for a good lighted snowflake that can easily be identified from 50-100 feet away.

I had purchased a larger chunk of pathway snowflake lights that are approx. 8"-10" that looked decent at 10-20' away, but once I got to the crowds viewing distance they appeared as nothing more than a ball of light.

My effect was going to be 4 - 20' x 100' grids of snowflake lights that when alternated would create the effect of a wall of snowfall.

Logically, I will either need larger snowflakes or bring the effect closer to the audience. Unfortunately, due to economic reasons I do not think I'll be able to have the snowflake much larger than 12" as the larger ones I’ve seen cost into $40-50 per snowflake. With 200+ that’s not an option.

I'm hoping that someone knows of a magic pathway snowflake that looks like a real snowflake.

Darn rookies!!

PyroN8----- Dont know if this will help but Target has 18" LED snowflakes for 20.00 and Homedepot has 24" reg.lite for 20.00$ Watch for the sales this weekend maybe they will even be cheaper. Forgot 1 target also has 12"Led for 9.99. I have 18 snowflakes on my roof of all different sizes from 12" to 36" Good luck paul Sunrise Fl.

I've got a wide assortment also. 36 total on roof.

Most were 18" from Lowe's for $15

You might want to try Target, they have the 18" rope light snowflakes, this year they also have LED snowflakes this year, but I am not impressed with the new LED one's. Also, under the Vendor section on PlanetChristmas, they are a few vendors who offer the snowflakes. Good Luck.

Thanks for the 411 everyone.

I did check out the lights at Target, but I think I am going to go with Daryl's recommendation. The snowflakes in motion seems to be the best bang for my buck... however due to the timing I won't be able to use the effect this year. That's okay though because next year I'll have a bigger budget, and the effect will look better with added height. So I'll have to stock up for next year!

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night! :P
