The Partiologist: Zebra Flooring - Tutorial

Zebra Flooring - Tutorial

With Valentine's Day behind us and before I get going with another party, I wondered if you knew Zebra's aren't just for Christmas anymore??  In fact my Zebra Themed Christmas Party actually began as a Birthday Party for my daughter.  So I think you should WILDLY consider having a ZEBRA party this year.  And to get you started, I will show you how I made the zebra flooring in my entryway. 

DIY Zebra Flooring




Started with some brown shipping paper~
And a Blank Canvas (aka My Floor)~
Ordered some black contact paper~
Rolled out the brown paper across the floor and taped it down the middle and ends~
Cut around the oval shape in the floor design~
The drew some random zebra stripes with a pencil~
And scribbled them in with marker so I could see where the stripes were~
I cut out the stripes one at a time and traced them (upside down) onto the contact paper, numbering each as I went so I wouldn't forget where they were to be placed after they were cut~
And there you have it - my Zebra Flooring~
This was the first thing for the guests to view when coming to the party!  And after the party was over, I just pulled it off the floor and threw it away.  Took about five hours to make and about five minutes to pull off!  I put this on the floor at least a week before the party and it held up really well.  I'm linking up HERE!  Is anyone seeing stripes in their future?
 
There's always a wild side to an Innocent Face!

  1. What an amazing idea. I have no clue how you come up with such plans. You should start a party planning buisiness. I am sure you will be known in no time.
