For those of you who don’t know me, in my other life from 9 to 3:30, I am a librarian and teacher. Every mont in my library, I like to decorate a different theme. It’s a good excuse for me to avoid doing work, because whenever I have the most work to do, my library will look amazing! I can always put off doing real work, to make some craft projects and decorating!
This month in the library, I thought I would try something new, so the theme in March is going to be……(imagine a drumroll here)…. The book is better! So I am going to decorate with a movie theme and tie in books that have been made into movies.
As part of my decorations, I always make centre pieces for the tables. So here is my idea for this month. The key to any idea I have is that is has to be cheap, as I obviously can’t spend school money on decorations, so I spend a lot of time digging around the basement and dollar store.
I started with plastic popcorn containers from the dollar store…
I was going to fill the popcorn containers with real popcorn, but then I started thinking about the kids and how it would be sitting out for a month, and I would have to tell kids not to eat it all month, so I decided to make some fake popcorn. I dug up some white and yellow tissue paper. If you can find a light yellow and a darker yellow, this will make a more realistic popcorn.
