Hall decoration – Forest in winter

Hall decoration – Forest in winter.

Stylized spruces painted on sheets of paper and bunches of real leafless twigs are glued to the walls or attached to them in a different way, stacking them in clumps.

Spruces are made from cut ones, smaller and smaller triangles stacked one above the other, from bottom to top. Several smaller and larger free-standing spruces are made of similar elements, but the triangles are cut out of cardboard, not of paper; it can be e.g. cardboard from packaging.

Triangles intended for spruces attached to the walls are painted with a green and white poster, white by making the lower borders and additionally one side of them (the same for everyone). Triangles intended for free-standing spruces are only painted green, and on the edges, cotton wool or frayed lignin is glued. Triangles of free-standing spruces are attached to wooden frames, whose ends resting on the floor are covered with cotton wool or lignin. In the same way, the bottom of the bushes tied to real twigs placed under the wall is covered, which is also taken with cotton wool.

The spruces attached to the wall are placed on a corrugated corrugation painted navy blue, jasnoniebieski, white or dark green paper background. The endings of this background on both sides of the panorama are gradually lowering, down to the floor. There should not be too many standing spruces, prevent children from playing freely.

Nylon lines are strung under the entire ceiling of the room, attached to holders in the walls, on which threads with cotton balls placed at the end or so-called. gold, or alternating balls of cotton wool and gold.

The frame for free-standing spruces is made of pieces of wooden slats, knocking them down as shown in the picture.

Drawing. Elements of a free-standing spruce: a - examples of triangles of paper or cardboard cut into "branches", b - rack visible from the front, c - way of overlapping "branch" triangles.

By nailing or gluing triangles of "branches" to the frame, you should try, so that the bottom of the triangle is attached to the cross bar, and the tip to the stem. This will give a more plastic image of the tree, because the upper triangles overlap the lower ones, which as a result of withdrawing the vertices of the lower ones will create the effect of depth.

In such a winter forest, the role of hosts can be played by "bunnies".
