The centerpiece of my son’s bull rider party was the glittery and eye-catching “Happy Birthday” PBR Logo I modified and used in the backdrop for his birthday cake.
I just love how it turned out!!!!! I spent maybe $3 or $4, my own labor of love, and 1 sleepless night to make it. I still can’t believe it.
Like I mentioned in the previous post, I really went out on my arts and crafts skills for this party.
Let me tell you how I did it.
To make a perfect star and a perfect circle inside the star, I folded the poster first into a square and folded the square horizontally, vertically, and diagonally to get the center of it. These folded lines would make it easier for me to get the star right.
Once I defined the shape of the logo, I continued to draw the bull rider and the bull inside the circle by following the dimensions on the original logo.
Once the rough sketch was finished, I cut the entire image out. I traced the silhouette of the logo onto a red poster board which would become the actual star and foundation of my logo. Next I glued a glittery silver tissue paper over the star and cut out the circle. Once the background was ready, I was able to cut out the bull rider and bull from the initial drawing on the white poster board.
Next, I defined the lines with black permanent marker and red ink. When I was satisfied with it, I glued it on top of the glittery circle. My next obstacle was completing the banner covering the bull rider.
Since I had left it so narrow, the letters P,B, and R were going to be too wide and short and were not going to look good. I decided to write “Happy Birthday” in the banner and it turned out a lot better.
Before gluing the letters, I glued a glittery red tissue paper over the banner, tracing the banner over the tissue paper and cutting it first.
And voila, here is the final result!
When the party was over, it was placed in my son’s bedroom, per his request.
Not too bad, huh?
