i hate to admit it, but lately i've been having a case of the boreds.
it could have something to do with the fact that Poppy has strict orders from the vet to stay locked up or curled up (on my lap) for 2 weeks, or it could be something more serious, but i just needed a little more party in my house if i was going to be quarantined here for 14 days.
so, while poppy and i got hooked on 30 Rock, i cut circles out of every piece of colored paper i could find in the house and made myself a confetti wall. it was just the right of party for my place and has thus far been the perfect cure for my boreds. it's even ignited my crafty flame and i have a few more projects i'm totally stoked to undertake--i needed a little kick in the pants!
here's how to create you're own confetti wall, great for a craft room, little girls room, birthday parties, holidays, or just a known remedy for your own case of the boreds.
pick your colors//
i think a slightly heavier paper looks better, but i used a little of both so either is fine.
google a circle template for whatever sized circle you want//
i used 4 inch circles--you can find the template here.
+After cutting about 50 out by hand i found at my scrapbook store has a die-cut, so i did the rest using that--much faster!
roll up pieces of painters tape (to avoid pulling paint off the wall) and arrange the circles on your//
remember it's a confetti wall and doesn't have to be perfectly spaced or planned--
imagine you just threw confetti up in the air and you're watching it fall.
|another fun little thing you can do with your extra painters tape--make a frame for any pretty prints you still have unframed. heaven knows i have way too many laying around my house! the one pictured above is found HERE.|
it looked cute in every stage, so use as many or as little dots as you have, and even half dots look cute layered or placed on wall edges.
and don't forget to show me if you do it! tag me on instagram (@ashleyanielson), put links to your blog, or post on the blogs facebook, i'd love to see how you interpret this.
what do you think? would you try it?
