Plastic Table Cloth Vines

Here are some pictures to guide you to make vines from a plastic tablecloth:

I unfolded the table cloth one time only and laid it on the paper cutter to slice it into strips.

I unfolded the tablecloth one time only and laid it on the paper cutter to slice it into strips.  It should be a square shape on the cutter.  The strips don’t need to be perfectly cut-imperfections make them look more like vines.

This is what your strip should look like when you're done.

This is what the finished strip should look like after you grab it on each side and pull all the way down the strip.  I did a lot of these and it did make my arms sore!

This is what the strips look like when you hang them from the ceiling.

We hung the strips in different spots around the ceiling.

    I would love to add this to my Pinterest page! I don’t see a link….. :-/

    • When you find an image you want to pin — whether it’s in a recipe, an article, or something else — follow these instructions to pin it to your board:

      Copy the URL of the page where the image appears.

      You do this by going to the page where the image is located. In your browser’s address bar, click and highlight the entire URL. Then copy that address.

      Navigate to http://pinterest.com and log in.

      Click the Add+ button at the top-right corner of the screen.

      The Add dialog box appears.

      Click the Add a Pin button.

      The Add a Pin dialog box appears.

      image1.jpg
      Paste the URL you copied in Step 1 into the URL field.

      Click the Find Images button.

      The Add a Pin dialog box expands to show these additional options:

      Images from the page

      A drop-down list of your boards

      A description text box

      image2.jpg
      To choose an image from the page, click the Next or Prev arrow until you find the image you would like to pin.

      You can select only one image at a time from the page.

      Use the drop-down list of your boards to select the board for the pin.

      If none of your boards suits this new pin, you can create a new board on the fly, too.

      Type a description of the pin in the Describe Your Pin text box.

      A description is not only a good idea, it’s required. Be sure to not only use the description to say how you feel about what you’re pinning but to clearly say exactly what it is (such as “great tips on receiving tweets on your cellphone”). You can also have fun with the description to make it more engaging, to add your personality stamp to it, and to give your followers a sense of why you pinned it.

      Click the Pin It button.

      If you add a pin from a website, you don’t need to provide a source in the description. Pinterest automatically links the image and the pin to the original URL you provided, and it shows the main domain name of the website on the pin’s page.
