Do you celebrate Chinese New Year in your home?
We do every year - starting with sweeping away all the dirt from the year before!
We have a celebration in our home school and this year we have invited other homeschoolers to come over and partay with us!
I had a "free" 15 mins this afternoon and quickly came up with my buffet table backdrop.
I started with 2 pieces of foam core board from the dollar store.
Taped them together.
Then using another roll of dollar store red wrapping paper - covered it on one side completely.
I found a font on line (go HERE) and printed the letters for HAPPY NEW YEAR.
Cut those babies out and used 1 gold foil placemat - cutting it up - for the trim. Not wasting anything - I used the remainder of the place mat (middle section) to "fill" in the board on 1 side.
Trimmed the letters up and glued those on to the board.
I added a few "Chinese lanterns" that I cut using my silhouette SD machine and there you have it!
Now my backdrop is finished 15 mins are up!
