To assemble the wall, I used 2 large foam boards that I glued together and reinforced with wood strips. I'm going for longevity with this thing. Side note - don't buy different foam board brands as apparently a half inch is not the same across brands. Oh well. You can't tell from the front.
|I really love the look of windows in an arena, so I measured and cut them out of the foam bigger than the actual window, so that hopefully the thick foam wall won't show.
|Then I glued the plastic panels over the front of the foam, measured and cut out the windows.
|The window frame pieces were cut using a tiny miter box I picked up at Michaels years ago to get decent 45 degree angles.
|Once assembled, I added a fire extinguisher, which was a prize from the Field of Dolls Online Photo Show (thanks Anne!), and several little signs I printed out on card stock.
|I used pieces of plastic from a Breyer box in the windows.
The blue sky and clouds is showing through from my other backdrop, which I thought was a nice touch.
I love a cheery blue sky and fluffy clouds.
|I also made lots of ornaments, presents, and decorations for Christmas.
It's never too late to decorate for Christmas!
