We kicked off our Medieval themed series, Once Upon A Time, in August. In this series, we focused on the Kings of Israel and the King of Kings, Jesus. We went all out for this series, from the inside to the outside. I'll share all of the pics and highlight some of our decorations!
We about bought out Lowes with this series! One of the highlights of this series was the draw bridge. It was made with 6' fence planks, screwed together with a 1x2 and tied to two strands of 10' chains.
We got the idea from Kingdom Rock VBS people on Pinterest to cover our outside walls in 2" thick foam and use acetone to create faux blocks in the foam. We painted the faux blocks and lines with grey and black latex paint from Walmart that ran us around $10 per can.
We created the flag poles in front of the draw bridge with bathroom trash bins filled with Sakrete. The poles are PVC pipes secured by screwing it to the bins. The cross flags were made by our awesome preacher's wife with felt purchased from Walmart.
We purchased more of the faux fires from amazon (the same we bought for the camping series) and used chains that they came with in our check-in area. The red and white flags hanging from the ceiling came from oriental trading. The table cloth on the check-in desk was purchased from shindigz.com.
This is the walk-in view of our check-in area. We have more of those awesome banners made by our awesome preacher's wife! We purchased a blow up dragon from amazon and the homemade shield on the wall under the TV was made with cardboard, duct tape, a small silver bowl from dollar tree, and a Pinterest instruction manual.
Our stage set up was made with the same foam idea as the outside of our building. The windows are air filters back lit with a red can light. The lion flags were purchased from shindigz.com. The center piece is another homemade duct shield and toy swords purchased from Walmart. The banners under our windows were more made by our awesome preacher's wife.
We purchased the rock paper from shindigz.com and we have another awesome homemade banner.
Our classrooms turned out nicely with the rock paper and decorations.
