Hello! I figured it was time for another blog post since I've been back from school for over a week now. I am an RA at my college, and each semester we make signs for the front of our residents doors with their names on them. These signs are more commonly known as "Door Decorations", or "Door Decs". Seeing as I like to torture myself and take on super large complicated projects, I chose to make Super Mario Brother door decs ENTIRELY out of construction paper. I only got a total of 6 hours of sleep between the two nights I spent working on them, but they turned out pretty awesome. I was very satisfied. I thought I'd use this opportunity to show everyone how I made the door decs, with pictures of all of the doors after I hung them!
First, I found a picture of the character that I wanted, and resized it on Microsoft word. Then I took a Micron pen and outlined the character to make a stencil.
Next, I placed the stencil ontop of a black piece of construction paper. Then I cut out the character and paper together with an exacto knife. I used the black paper as the base for all of my characters.
Next, I took different colors of construction paper, and started cutting out shapes from the stencil with the construction paper behind it.I tried to match the color of construction paper as close to the original picture as possible.
