Stage Designs


Diane Chesnutt at Saint James United Methodist Church in Montgomery, AL brings us this design using coffee filters and bubble wrap!


  • 14 strips bubble wrap – 24” X 10’
  • 560 coffee filters
  • 10 rolls double sided tape

Very simply, they unrolled the bubble wrap and stuck coffee filters on using strips of double-sided tape. They applied the coffee filters in a checker board pattern. Then they weighted each bubble wrap pannel at the bottom to keep it from moving.

They used leftover bubble wrap from a previous set and has the coffee filters donated. So the only expense was the tape ($35).

Total man hours: 18 hours.

    Very Impressive! Just curious, how long was this up? Did the double sided tape hold well enough?

    The concerning factor is- have you ever tested to see what happens with a flame test and these materials? very flammable – please be careful with both filters and bubblewrap.
