Laura Blechle from South Telegraph Christian Church in St. Louis, MO brings us this flourishy set design. (Originally posted January 2012)
They made 4’ x 4’ panels out of 2”x2”’s and ¼” luan. They took an ivy pattern, traced it onto plywood, cut it out and created a template. Then they laid out their panels and used the template to create a running vine up the panels.
Once they were all cut, they painted them using a ragging off technique. They were hung with a wire running through the framing boards and separated with little wire cable clamps. The lights against the back scrim shone through the cut-outs in the panels.
Finally, it was framed with sheer curtains that were gathered with a fat rope and stuffed with batting to give a Victorian feel.
