Here's the photo display board I made for Tyler's graduation party.
I wanted it to have an organized look to it and not just a big mess of pictures overlapping onto each other. Believe it or not, there are just over 70 pictures on the board!
The "CONGRATS" banner I made.
Bought these numbers from the dollar store...
and transformed them into this!
This picture was taken as the food buffet table was being set up.
Fifty-cent-popcorn-buckets-turned-utensil-holders. I traced a pattern onto a paper grocery bag and cut it out; then used the pattern on each piece of scrapbook paper and cut those out. Next I used spray adhesive to adhere the paper to the bucket. The stars are actually star-shaped playing cards covered with scrapbook paper and letters. I punched a hole in the top and threaded ribbon through the star. I broke out the trusty glue gun and glued on fun pom-pom trim (on sale - it cost just under $2 for the 3) and the ribbon/star tag.
More scrapbook paper, a circle cutter, hole punch and ribbon for this project. All told, I cut out, punched and tied 135 circles! (Found the idea somewhere on the web and adapted it a little bit.) These sat under the table centerpieces.
This is what the centerpiece planters looked like when I first bought them.
Couldn't beat the price, especially for an FTD planter.
Quite obviously they were the wrong color but that's why spray paint is our best friend! ha ha
Plastic cardholder that came with the planter...
turned into this after I was done :)
This is what the centerpieces looked like - only the grass was actually green then, not brown and dying as it looks now :) (I just took this picture tonight and the party was just over 2 weeks ago.)
Thanks for looking at my party projects!
