Covering Walls with Gossamer Material

Shimmera GossamerAny type of wall surface can be covered with gossamer material. Gossamer looks best if slightly stretched and pleated. Pleat each gossamer strip to 1/2 its original width. Fasten the gossamer to a wall or run a wire at the top and bottom of the wall. Attach the wires at each end with a screw eye.

Hang paper lanterns at various heights throughout your room for a trendy Asian flair and extra soft illumination.  An excellent companion to this decoration would be Bonsai Trees as centerpieces.

Greenery always adds another dimension to a room and warms up a large reception area beautifully. Faux Parisian Fir Trees are perfect placed in groups of 3 around the room or placed on either side of the head table.

Ceiling-to-Floor Gossamer “Columns”

Use 60” wide gossamer for these columns. For each column, you will use between three to five strips of gossamer, depending on how wide you want the column to be.

Take the end of the gossamer roll and attach it to the ceiling with double-sided tape or folded duct tape (this will create the center of the column). At floor-length, roll out an additional 3’-5’ of gossamer before cutting it. (You want excess length to belt and bunch the gossamer later.) Have someone hold the strip flat and straight at the bottom. Repeat the process for the side strips, and angle them into the center strip. Gather all the strips together at the middle.

Tie a piece of gossamer around the middle of the column to “belt” it.
Fluff the ends of the column and allow them to puddle on the floor, or cut them to your desired length.
