I'm giving my computer lab a makeover this year! I'm so happy it's being painted this summer. It was a pale baby blue and now it's a darker gray/blue so anything I put on the walls will POP!
I'm trying to stick to a color theme, too. I've chosen navy and lime green. We have blue rolling computer chairs and gray tables so keeping blue was a necessity. We are St. Patrick School, so the green is a no brainer! Together they look fantastic and I was happy to find a good stash of those colors in my scrapbooking paper supply.
My first decoration is a star garland that I cut on my Cricut and SCAL using the star shape already installed in Sure Cuts a Lot, and then quickly sewed together on the sewing machine. I made one long string of about 60 stars and I will cut it as needed when I get in the lab to decorate. I cut the stars in different sizes ( anywhere from 2"- 5") and then just fed them into the sewing machine, leaving a bit of thread between each one.
My second project was a pennant banner using the same papers (except white). I plan to hang it across a bulletin board or in an empty corner of the lab. Again, I'll have to figure it out when I get in there. I cut 12 triangles on the Cricut- they are about 8" long. This is just a partial photo of the pennant. I punched holes with a hole punch and threaded them together with a thin ribbon. They cutest and easiest way to keep them in place on the ribbon was to tie ribbon strips between each pennant. I used coordinating ribbons and it turned out ADORABLE!
Of course, I will post an entire gallery of photos of this makeover - both before and after photos- when it's complete :) Stay tuned!
