I am using an arch to create an altar of sorts at my ceremony location. Here is what I have so far:
The arch is from Hobby Lobby. The steel rod segments are around 2′ each, and we had to leave one out so it wasn’t too tall. It’s 7′ tall at the tip-top in this pic.
I bought a spool of warm white (NOT the cool-blue-white) LED lights from Target in the Christmas section. It’s around 66 feet of lit length, which allowed me to go over the arch a total of 4 times, with a little bit of draping action going on in the center.
I will post pictures when this is finished! I bought purple and white sheer curtains from Ikea, and those will be layered and gathered to soften the glow of the lights. I will probably add some flowers or other accents at the peak, too.
Hey all, here’s a photo of the completed arch unlit at our venue. The lights were strung just as in the picture above, shining through the sheers.
