Celebrate America Partyscape

  Celebrations Challenge #MichaelsMakers

It’s not often I’m way ahead of the game but when I am, it’s by more than three months. haha! As a part of the Michael’s Makers team, my final assignment came with a “Celebrate America” theme from the Celebrations campaign. Due in April. Yes, quite a bit early and especially since photos were actually due in March while there was still snow on the patio but it wouldn’t be a “challenge” otherwise, right? I had a blast decorating our dresser turned kitchen island in red, white & blue for a festive party. And hey, I’m happy to celebrate America any time of the year.

What I did: Trace letters onto scrap book paper. Cut out scrap book paper shapes. Apply decoupage to wooden letter (works like a glue). Carefully line up scrapbook paper. Apply another layer of decoupage over top of the scrapbook paper to seal. Let dry and display.

Add a few red, white and blue doilies to a burlap table runner for an inspired ‘firework’s look.

Red, white and blue straws and red and white polka dot cupcake liners add to the patriotic color theme. There are little American flags near the cash register. Add a red/blue topper to the cupcakes (I found red and blue keys).

2. Next, I gave each 2 coats of white paint and let dry.

3. Once the white paint was dry, I applied FrogTape® Shape Tape™ (I used the chevron pattern) in three strips, starting with the top, then the bottom, then centering the third between the top and bottom.

4. Using my thumbnail, I burnished the edges of the tape to activate the PaintBlock® Technology.

5. Then just paint the area not covered by tape. I used a combination of red and blue. I did two coats.

6. Carefully remove the tape while the paint is still wet.
