Amber Schultze and Jenifer De Figueiredo from Prairie Heights Community Church West Fargo, ND brings us this stage design for their sermon series titled The Princess Bride. (Originally posted August 2013)
Inexpensive 36″ wide cheesecloth and RIT brand fabric dye were used to create the layers of colors on each piece of fabric. The process started by cutting the bolt of cheesecloth into 10′ length sections. The top portion of fabric was given an ombre blue effect. The remaining fabric was dipped all in yellow. The next portion was dipped into orange (leaving some yellow alone). Wine and dark brown followed, layering the colors on top of each other in smaller sections as we went down the fabric. The fabric was quickly rinsed in cool water after each color addition.
Once the fabric was dry, they cut each length in half creating 18″ wide individual panels. Inexpensive 4′ lath wood was used to layer each fabric piece onto and stapled into place. Once in place, they cut each fabric piece to varying lengths to give more visual interest to the bottom.
