un-bridezilla:  I think the circles are lovely! If you’re worried about them getting tangled, you could get a stapler and just fix them onto the fabric on the top, on the bottom and in the middle. 

<br />Oh, and a great way to save money on fabric is to use the white semi-sheer fabric they use for covering gardens, I think it’s called row cover fabric. My friend did this at the wedding, she decorated the church pews with it and it looked great! I swear nobody knew until she told us 🙂

un-bridezilla:  What about a muslin for an inexpensive fabric?  It’s sort of a linen fabric and it’s pretty cheap.  It’s what people use to make a mock up of dress designs before using the expensive stuff.  I usually see it in an ivory color but I’m sure it’s out there in white, too.

  un-bridezilla:  You could use these 9 ft tall rolls of paper that are 36 feet long. You can then attach whatever you want in front of the paper.


You can also use sheer drapes. You can find very inexpensive ones at WalMart, K Mart etc or you may get lucky and find some used at the thrift shop. Remember that you don’t need 41 feet of all the same drapery. You could put the same drapes on either end and fill in the center with something else.

The nice thing about drapes rather than just fabric is that the pleats make the drapes hang away from the wall. That would help hide the fire extinguisher.

un-bridezilla:  You can build a frame with furring strips then tack the paper to them.
