Brighten up your space!
Are you aware of vacant spaces that need a dash of colour? It could be your room, a balcony or a classroom. Here are some quick and easy ideas to add colour to your life!
Buy a pack of colourful rubber balls. Take a big sheet of transparent plastic (preferably the type florists use) and wrap a number of balls. Tie both ends with satin ribbon to make a large sweet-shaped decoration. Or make it long and narrow to resemble a Christmas cracker. Or just tie it up like a bag. Place this decoration in a prominent spot.
Buy large sheets of brightly-coloured paper. Draw a shape on the back of one. It could be a large elephant or a flower. Place many sheets together and cut it out so that you have the same cut-out in many colours.
Now arrange them one behind the other, with a little of each colour peeping out, and fix it on your door or wall.
Paint details on the cut-out that is placed first.
If you cut out geometric shapes like triangles or hearts, you can arrange them like a fan before gluing them on.
Add colourful borders along your walls, or stickers to match your theme.
