Decorating Your Snack Rotation

Snacks at a volcano? That’s right. But don’t worry, this volcano won’t spew. It’s the Paricutin Volcano in Mexico, and it’s one of the natural wonders of the world.

Try these decorating tips to get your lava flowing.

Tip #1: The Decorating Made Easy with Clip Art CD contains clip art of church ruins that you can use to enhance your snack area. Simply use an overhead projector to trace the clip art onto insulation foam. Remember to draw out the lines on top of the plastic sheathing, then cut the foam, then remove the plastic sheathing before painting. Put a base coat of paint on the foam and don’t use spray paint on the foam.

Tip #2: Use two-inch insulation foam to create the volcano. Create ridges in the foam with a hacksaw or heat knife. Paint the foam and hold it together with T-pins and duct tape. No hammer or nails needed!

Tip #3: Go the extra mile for the “wow” factor. Adding a smoke machine behind your volcano really makes it come to life!

Tip #4: Protect your tables with the VBS 2012 Tablecloths.

Tip #5: Other accessories that will make your snack area fun include the VBS 2012 String Flags, VBS 2012 Whirleys, VBS 2012 Quick Scene™ Visual Pack, VBS 2012 Inflatable Airplane, and the VBS 2012 Quick Scene™ Super Duper Sized Backdrop.

Hi everyone! I’m back from the beach and it’s been busy here at LifeWay! This week on Foto Friday, I’ve decided to show you all some more photos from our marketing video/photo shoot. As soon as I get a hold of some of the finished shots, I’ll post them. :)


Here’s a shot of the Parícutin volcano. If you haven’t read about how Parícutin was formed, check it out! Pretty interesting!

Is that Jeremy hiding behind some silhouette trees? These trees are for the Northern Lights set.

Here I am hanging some Christmas tree lights behind the “Northern Lights”.

Here are my 2 sets that I built. . .err, still building! (in this photo at least!) lol!
