I'm excited to present my latest find - several 1960's folding ball paper decorations. I wanted to use these fun and delicate creations in new ways. I hung them against the wall and added other three dimensional wall art like a sea creature pop-up book. Feeling inspired by the colors and ocean theme I added accessories like Fiesta dinnerware, Seagrove pottery, a vintage kettle, and a sequined purse. The purse was a last minute thought, but I love how the sequins elegantly mimic fish scales.
This set-up was a fun way to play with color (especially since I love teal and orange), but it also generated functional home ideas. Think - a wall of colorful pop-up books or 3-D party balls in a kid's room or living room. The pop-up books add interest and shadow effects to the wall, and can be hung similar to a frame or leaned against a shelf. The party balls are simply hung with double stick tape - for permanence try a heavy duty version.
