1. I don’t think this would be expensive to make at all.  You could do it a couple of ways for a couple of different looks.

2. it would not look cheap.  If you’re going to do it though, I feel like you need to commit (I’ve seen this done at a wedding, the the couple only used a few round things- I think they needed more- it would have been a wow piece).

3.  It appears that the large circles are paper parasols (I could be wrong, but even if I’m wrong you could use them- just cut off the handle).  The other varying circles remind me of party decorations that you unfold like these: http://www.lunabazaar.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWCATS&Category=439 I’m sure you could make them, or find different ones to suit your color/pattern tastes.

  I think you could even make them my altering this http://www.marthastewartweddings.com/portal/site/ww/menuitem.d9cc37f780ffa93df8aeef105173a0a0/?vgnextoid=efb9608f8532f010VgnVCM1000003d370a0aRCRD&vgnextfmt=default

to fit what you needed.  Instead of adding all the layers, just use the first round layer so it’s a circle.

It’s cute!  I second Maureen — if you do it, do lots of it!

They wouldn’t spin because you would be attaching the string to a frame.  The parasol opens and there’s like 3-5 wooden sticks that support the paper while it is open- if you attach the string to one of the sticks it will hang perpendicular and not move.  If you look at the picture that’s what they likely did.
