Where do I even start? In the world of Christmas Lighting, there are so many great resources out there for creating your display.

My goal here is to list useful and up-to-date resources that are available online (gulp!). All resources are organized below alphabetically into topics, which are then organized alphabetically within.  Keep in mind that there are MANY places to buy pixels, props, and sequences, but these will get you started!

Some links on this page are "affiliate" links, which means I make a small commission if you buy, at no additional cost to you.

Did I miss your site? Email me ([email protected]), and we'll get it added.

Buying Pixels

DIY LED Express

HolidayCoro: While there is some hatred towards HolidayCoro from some hobbyists, I've bought their stuff and had no problems.  They're not my choice in controller, but their pixels work great and have the most detailed labels I've seen.  Their EasyPlug 3 is compatible with xConnect plugs.
