Stunning Wall Decoration

February 16, 2012

This handmade backdrop used at a wedding I found over at Green Wedding Shoes made my heart positively leap. This is stunning. I don’t know how it was made, I thought at first cupcake wrappers but I don’t see any ruffled edges so perhaps something else… Either way, I love it and here is the link to the site where I found it in case you want to research more… I’d normally do that for you but today I’m in a rush and cannot.

    Beautiful! it’s look like paper rolls glued together…

    It appears to be coiled paper. Regardless, it is very cool!

    pretty amazing for what looks to be a ‘temporary’ backdrop. perhaps just circles made from paper?

    this is fantastic indeed! maybe it’s painted toilet paper rolls? really really wonderful!

    Wow, that is gorgeous. Looks like rolled paper or maybe painted toilet paper tubes. At first glance it looked like an oversized, grown up light brite.

    It looks like rolled paper in chicken wire maybe?

    It almost looks like roll up colored cardstock that is wedged into chicken wire, like pomping on parade floats. very beautiful.

    It is made from rolled scraps of paper. Truly AMAZING! I would have to say the best DIY I have seen. Here is a quote via
    “I started cutting out petal shapes in different colors and sizes for our Paper Flower Wedding Arch and Floating Flowers for the pool. With the scraps from those larger flowers I was able to cut out smaller flower shapes for the Floating Flower Wall. For the Rolled Paper Art Backdrop…”

    looks like painted toilet paper rolls, fantastic idea!

  • Reply caren February 16, 2012 at 3:40 pm

    WOW!! That reminds me of the light bright I had when I was little!!
    It’s a beautiful piece, but I wonder if I would tire of how bold it is after a short time.

    Perhaps if it WAS a light bright wall, you could switch it out now and then?

    It does look like a light bright! It’s absolutely wonderful and fabulous and very special for a wedding -the fact that it’s temporary makes it all the more luxurious don’t you think? Great find!

    Oh wow. That is stunning.

  • Reply Ashley February 17, 2012 at 4:17 am

    It looks like it’s “pomped” in a way. Chicken wire filled with colored paper. But instead of crumpling the paper up like you would on a float or a wall decoration it’s rolled and secured, probably by painting the chicken wire with glue or modge podge then sticking the paper in. The paper we used for pomping in college comes pre-cut into little squares in a bajillion colors and would be perfect for this.

    The black is traditionally pomped, the colored pieces are rolled up into little balls then glued to board.

    Yes, I saw this on Green Wedding shoes the other day. It is very unique!

    Hi Holly,
    LOVE that wall decor! Reminds me of the Light Brite toy…Maybe it’s just rolled 8.5 x 11″ paper???

  • Reply Stacey February 17, 2012 at 3:37 pm

    Beautiful! I could look at that all day

  • Reply Chrystina February 24, 2012 at 12:29 am

    It always amazes me how much you can do with paper. Maybe that’s why I love it so much…
