Cardboard Wall Dots For Simple Party Decorations

Craft:


This weekend we had my daughter Poppy’s 6th birthday party at our lovely local Memorial Hall. Our Hall is very large and consists of several rooms, so I had to find some cheap and easy ways to decorate it (nicely!) for the party. I decided to focus on decorating a couple of key areas for maximum impact, which led me to my idea for my Cardboard Wall Dots.



I also made up some new No-Sew Bunting to go with my Wall Dots, which looked very nice.



My Cardboard Wall Dots were very simple to make! They also hardly took any time to do. The only materials you’ll need are:

-          Fabric
-          Cardboard boxes
-          Serrated knife for cutting out the shapes
-          Spray glue

Firstly, cut (“slice”, I suppose I really mean) your shapes out of the cardboard with your serrated knife. 



Then place the dots on your fabric and cut around them. Leave a bit of material right around the dot, so that you’ve got enough to fold over once you’ve applied your spray glue.


Give your dots a quick iron to get rid of any creases. 


Then spray the wrong side of the material with spray glue, and place your cardboard dot in the middle of each piece of material. 

Give it a while to become sticky. Then fold the edges over the cardboard and give them a little while to dry.


Then simply stick them up on the wall with blu-tack. They will look terrific.

If you decide to try this project, I hope you enjoy it!
