I created another project for my brothers graduation. We had our party last night, outside by the pool, and it was nice when the sun finally went down. People from the neighborhood as well as family stopped by to celebrate. I put myself in charge of gathering decorations to hang for the party. And wouldn't you know I got most of the stuff from Dollar Tree. Anyways I made some very cool signs for the party. (you can see the designs at the end of this post, I want to keep it a surprise)
First I stopped by the dollar tree and found some hanging signs for a hula or beach theme party. I brought the signs home, not intending to use them as is. I took out the rope/twine pieces to make it easier to paint. Then began painting away.
After painting the whole surface I began with the embellishments. Outlining the sign, writing words, outlining in puffy paint, etc.
So when the party came around I put the twine/rope back into the holes and put them around the food table. In the large space the party was in the signs were pretty small and a little insignificant, but I am very proud of them.
I also made some reece's cup graduation hats. These things are all over the internet, but I want to give some suggestions. One: refrigerate the reeces before beginning the project. You have to push on the tops of the cups, and it is easier when the chocolate is really hard. Two: if you are taping the hat onto the reeces cup roll a large section of tape, then cut the pieces to fit your needs. It's better than rolling them individually.
