TUTORIAL: Olympic Rings Dessert Table Backdrop




As part of our "Olympic Party Week" I thought I'd share with you a really easy tutorial I created for the backdrop of my Olympic Desserts Table - As seen on Bird's Party Magazine :)



Materials Needed: 

* 5x  flat-backed polystyrene wreaths from craft stores (I used 21 cm diameter wreaths)
* Crepe paper in blue, black, red, yellow and green
* Scissors
* Small metal pins or glue for a permanent wreath


How to make your Olympic Rings Backdrop:

1) Cut your crepe paper to about 3” thick stripes (you could also use crepe paper rolls). I just cut straight from the roll.

2) Pin one end of the paper to the back of the wreath and start wrapping the paper around the ring until the entire surface is covered in paper - Slightly overlapping each layer as you wrap.

3) When you’re finished wrapping, make a small fold on the end of the crepe paper and pin to the back of the wreath. You could also use hot glue, but the great thing about pinning is that you can re-purpose the wreaths for another craft project if desired! ;)

4) Because the rings are very light in weigh, you can stick to your desserts table backdrop board (large poster board, white canvas etc) using double-sided tape. I stuck mine directly onto my white wall, but I don't recommend it as it can peel off the paint!
