Kids running beneath a street banner

Rock the Block Banner
Make the street safe for activities by blocking it off with these banners. Cut a canvas drop cloth (#74135) to a 2-foot x 8-foot size, tape and paint a border around the edges, and hand-paint “Rock the Block” (or a message of your choice) centered on the banner. Then add grommets to the corners and use rope to hang it from a pair of anchored stepladders.

Pennant signs with “eats” spelled out

Hang Colorful Pennant Signs
Make as many pennants as you need to spell out different messages. To make bunches of these flags, cut strips of drop cloth a little wider than you want the length of your pennants. Then draw alternating diagonal lines equal distances apart and cut the drop cloth into pieces along the lines. Paint a background color, let dry, and add hand-painted lettering and decorations. Then fold the wide end around a length of rope and use hot glue to hold it in place.

Serving table with DIY polka dot tablecloth

Meal Time -- On the Dot
Turn a 6-foot x 9-foot drop cloth (#126317) into a bright, fun tablecloth you can wash and reuse. Use a compass to make a 6-inch circle centered on a scrap of cereal box cardboard and cut out the circle. Use the cardboard scrap to trace pencil circles at random on the tablecloth. Then paint in the circles. Let the tablecloth dry overnight before using, and wash only in cold water.

Pet Parade sign on painted cardboard

Sign of a Good Time
Identify events and attractions with colorful custom signs. From a small moving box (#118595), cut out the sides and ends and paint both sides of each piece. Use painter’s tape to mask the center about 2 inches from the edges and paint a border in a contrasting color. Then paint on designs and lettering, glue a wooden stake (#322377) to the back, and plant your signs.
