VBS 2013 - Kingdom Rock

Hello everyone and thanks for stopping by Nonna's Craft Corner!
We just wrapped up another awesome VBS at Westgate Church of Christ and I thought I would share a few pictures with you.  My husband, myself and a very good friend worked on the set for about 2 months before VBS actually started.  We had some major ups and downs with this one (like a screen falling on it and crushing part of it), but we managed to pull it together...

*The castle walls are made of 2 inch foam insulation sheets that are 4 X 8 feet.  We cut, painted, glued, nailed and duct taped the sections together to form our walls.

* The "torches" were ordered from Group and run on batteries.  They have a tiny little fan that blows the "fire" and the kids loved them.

* A wonderful friend let us borrow several of the props we used this year.  The throne and this table added so much to our set - thank you Susan!

* We filled paint buckets with cement and inserted PVC pipe into the cement to help support each column.  The PVC runs up the back of each column.  At the top we added a T joint and a small piece of PVC to jut out in front of the set.  We used these to drape our purple fabric over the front of the set.

* It was a wonderful blessing to have 2 of my 4 grands attend this year's VBS!
Emma and Blake and had a great time!

I know this isn't my "usual" type of project to share with you, but it's been a major part of my life for the last few months and I just had to show you!  Thanks so much for stopping by and I'll be seeing you (with a more "typical" project to share) soon.....

Until next time,
