Intro: "Alice in Wonderland" Cardboard Decoration
It was announced that an annual concert (ABC-party) would take place at my son's school. The plot of the performance was supposed to be based on a well-known story "Alice in Wonderland". I offered my help.
Having read the script, I decided to make a four-part decoration: Alice's room, Rabbit's house, Caterpillar's mushroom and Tea Room.
It was all in one construction, that was easy to turn round.
The decoration was made by using just cardboard and glue, wallpaper and cloth!
The key thing is that it could be set without any difficulties.
To make such decoration you need the following materials:
- A pencil and a ruler;
- Scissors and a knife;
- Paints and a brush;
- A double-side tape;
- Some liquid nails.
Some tips: you'd better to use 5 layer corrugated cardboard, use any wallpaper you like (paper or non -woven one), as well as tape.
So, let's start!
Take 2 sheets of cardboard and cut them with a size of 1.8 by 2.0 meters. They are set vertically.
Cut each sheet in the middle till the half of the list. Cut one piece of cardboard from the top and another one from below to make a lock.
Paint the areas both sides, where the window and 2 doors are supposed to be. Keep it dry. Cut the window and 2 doors out.
Also, make 2 cuts to strengthen the decoration. The table between Alice's room and Rabbit's house as well as a tree between 2 gardens are set in these two cuts.
Than, wallpaper the decoration using a double-side tape.
Cut trims for the window and for the doors and paint them. Stick them using some liquid nails.
Finally, make some trees out of cardboard and some flowers of the remaining wallpaper.
