    Pictures from how we used the Gossamer

    These are pictures of the purple gossamer we used on the ceiling to cover the ugly fluorescent lights.

      We used the purple gossamer as a backdrop to 'The Wizard of OZ' Awards Theme party. We simply gathered the gossamer by stapling a pleat every few inches and applying it to the 10' wall with push pins. This really enhanced the decorations!

        Exactly what I wanted. We used the gossamer to create a "pop-up" prom dress boutique. It was everything I hoped it would be. Thank you!

          This material was a beautiful color and looked just as we expected it too. This was used for a canopy at my daughters wedding. It was used with other colors and a chandelier. It worked beautifully. The affordability made it possible to make m daughters wedding the day she dreamed of.

                I can hardly wait until our birthday event. We are using gossamer to cover one short wall and for drapes for guests chairs. The color is just what we needed and were looking for. The gossamer is ownderfully sheer so we plan to use some 'cut outs' and small twinkle lights behind it on the wall. We are also using the gossamer to make bows for the backs of the guest chairs. We are all so excited about the ambience that the gossamer creates. Our party is going to be the hit of the season and will be talked about for a long time to come. Thank you for your part in helping us to create so much for such a reasonable price.

                  Love this product! Used around my daughter buffet table for her theme Tutu's and Tiara's party. Love that I can put lights under it and it can be seen by the guest. Just have to make sure that you get the right size; so recommend measuring what you are going to use it for. Other then that wonderful product.

                            This made perfect table runners for a retirement party. I was a bit worried when it said not color fast, as we were expecting some small children so I tested it before use by soaking in plain water; then in vinegar water, and there was absolutely no color transfer at all. You saved me hours of hemming fabric for table runners - thanks!

                              We used gossamar for our After Prom party - wrapped it around columns (put white lights on first then layer the colored gossamer over top and it's an awesome lighted affect). We also used the gossamer on the floor in a showcase area - again layed white lights down first and lightely put gossamer on top - excellent touch. Love this stuff.

                                We used this and other gossamer colors to decorate a very dull looking entertainment room for our daughters graduation.

                                        I use this purple gossamer as the internal aspect of gift boxes that I present to patients after their surgery. It is colorful and easy to use and makes the gift so much more professional and special. I use the matching purple gossamer ribbon to tie a bow and pull the whole gift together.

                                            If I use this to cover a cardboard prop, will you see the cardboard through it? Or is it opaque enough with brown behind it to show the color?

                                              The gossamer is similar in "consistency" of a dryer sheet - if you lay it out flat, you would be able to somewhat see what it is covering. If you would like a sample, please call Customer Service and we have swatches available for our fabrics and the colors.

                                              That would depend on how tall and wide your area you are wanting to cover to make the backdrop.

                                              Our gossamer can be used for many uses, however it is a thin, sheer material that may rip with heavy traffic.

                                              Gossamer is used for draping from ceilings and creating breathtaking backgrounds and chair swags. Gossamer is not color fast so we do not recommend using on top of tables unless it's underneath another cover since the color can run when wet.

                                              Customers make chair bows a lot with gossamer. We do recommend 3 yards (9 feet) of gossamer per bow to give the draping effect.

                                              I would recommend that you order 2 of our 60 yard x 100 yard rolls.

                                            can gossamer be used as a chair cover? How to drape it and what is the best size?

                                              I would not recommend using our colored gossamer as a chair covering. It is not colorfast and you run the risk of it rubbing off on your guests clothes.

                                            Does this product drape as well as say tulle, or is it more rigid? Can it be reused or will it crinkle, crease or tear easily? I have normally used the plastic table roll for draping on ceiling which drapes nicely but wanted a softer look.

                                            Thanks

                                              Gossamer is a bit more rigid than tulle. The best way to describe gossamer is that it is the same constancy as a dryer sheet.

                                              This can be tacked up, taped up or just draped over something so no adhesive has to be used.
