Kim Miller and the team at Ginghamsburg Church in Tipp City, OH brings us this creative use of aluminum cans, paint, and paper pendant lights.
They were inspired by a Columbus, Ohio Anthropologie storefront.
To create this set they used mainly smashed aluminum cans and paper pendent lights from IKEA. The back wall was painted white so they covered it with black weed block cloth. Then the team hammered hundreds of cans to the wall using small nails/brads. One sleeve of 1000 can lids (secured from their local Pepsi dealer) rounded out the design. Finally, ketchup bottles filled with paint allowed the team to “throw” painted accents over the lids, enhancing the feeling of movement.
The IKEA pillow lights were hung from a suspended PVC grid and arranged in such a way as to mimic doves in flight across the stage. Finally the back wall was colored with LED lights to allow for color changes from week to week. Total cost for materials and lights came in at $150, not including the LED lights for the back wall.
