Step 1: Supplies
- Coroboard 4x8 sheet (optionally painted)
- Drill with bit
- sharp knife
- C7 lights any color
- Zip ties
Step 2: The build
Next drill holes the distance apart and diameter of the sockets you are using. Score each hole just a little bit to help them fit in tight.
Remove the bulb from each socket and push it into the coroboard. I recommend plugging in the strand while working so you notice any problems before you are done.
After all the sockets are in. Fold up the board and use zip ties every few feet to hold it together.
If you need a longer length than eight feet. I used some metal pieces from a sign and duct tape to connect the correct amount of strips together.
