St. Patrick’s Day Backdrop
Christina shared this simple St. Patricks Day backdrop DIY in the Spring 2014 issue of EPM. I just love this idea!
Here is a quick and easy St.Patrick’s Day Backdrop. Almost everyone has made a paper chain when they were a kid. This is a fast way to add some color behind your display, and an easy way to get your kids involved!
Step one – supplies – I purchased a pack of assorted green cardstock at Michael’s Craft Store. You’ll need a paper cutter (or scissors), a stapler, clear thread, and clear tape.
Step two- To make one chain, you’ll need 4 sheets of 8 1/2 x 11″ paper. Cut each paper into 8 strips. Using your stapler, connect each strip of paper to the next. I kept to one color per chain, but you can mix it up if you want.
Step three- Once you have all your chains made, string them onto the clear thread. Make a loop on each end. Attach each loop to the wall (I used a thumb tack). Using the clear tape, add a piece between each chain -it will keep the chains spaced just how you want them & no one will be able to see the tape.
Look for more of Christina’s work on Facebook and in future issues of EPM!
