A 1970s party, part 3-- more decorations, smiley faces to hang from the ceiling

>> Wednesday, October 21, 2009


The smiley face is an icon of the 1970s. And it is still easy to find smileys all over: Walmart's logo (free stickers for the kiddies too), smiley ballons(Dollar Tree) , fabrics (Walmart), scrapbook papers, cards, gift wrap (Dollar Tree), and the list goes on.

These smileys were made with fusible stabilizer to make them stiff for hanging), yellow flannel, black puffy paint and rick-rack (I was fortunate to find a basket of vintage rick-rack at a 2nd hand shop!) My smileys ranged from 6-12 inches, depending on the scraps I had availible. The puffy paint is easy to work with, and this project does not require much finess. By the way, smileys DON"T have eyebrowns (my youngest and I had a debate about this! The question I had to ask my self is WHY was I arguing with a 4 year old? LOL!) I used hot glue to attach the rickrack to the back-- Viola! Super-Sweet-Smileys!   I hung mine from the ceiling as you would 45 records for a 1950s party!
