Vellum Mobiles

My latest Project Wedding post is up. If you’ve read this blog any amount of time then you know I love decorating with paper. I came up with this concept to create colorful installations by sewing strips of vellum together. They are very easy to make and you can make them in any colors to match your party. They look so modern and pretty. Read all the instructions right here.

Linens and Rentals from my friends at Abbey Party Rents.

    This is identical to a hanging mobile sold at the MoMA store…couldn't find the designer name, but it's in there. Last time I visited I took a photo with full intentions to duplicate it because it looked so easy — thanks for the instructions!

    Jordan, FYI the silverware placement is backwards! The knife/spoon go on the right under the water glass, the forks on the left.

    These are so great! They were the perfect low-cost, big-impact decoration for my daughter's rainbow birthday party.

    I couldn't find colored vellum in the short time I had, so I used rainbow colored cardstock. Due to the weight of the paper, I didn't need to add a weight at the bottom.

    Still worked very well. They were a big hit! (Photos on my blog, if you're interested.) Thank you for sharing your idea!!

    My friend owns the original design so I recognized this and researched it and found the designers website:
    It was designed in 2004 by Brigitta and Benedikt Martig-Imhof. And yes, they can be purchased at the MOMA store as well as the designers website. I think it is always nice to credit the original designers:).
