How to Make a Movie Screen


Today I got started on some VBS props. Made this movie screen in just half an hour with help from Kyle.

For my Pinterest friends, here’s how to make this screen for under $20:


4×8 Foam Core board from Home Depot

1 Roll White Contact Paper

1 Colored Plastic Table Cloth

Foamies from the dollar store


Step 1: When heading to Home Depot, keep and eye out for these.











Step 2 & 3

Cut your tablecloth in half lengthwise and staple each half to top of the board. I bunched them a bit to look like curtains on a rod.

Embellish with your choice of foamies. Simply staple them on. I found these glitter crowns at the dollar store. curtain










We use a projector, computer speakers, and hook up a laptop or DVD player to show the videos.

Last year we just used 2 white tablecloths taped to the wall for the screen and 3 red tablecloths for curtains and valance. We covered the rest of the room in black tablecloth. We bought a roll, cut to the length of the wall and pinned it into the ceiling tiles with T-Pins. It stayed up all week! Looking forward to making new movie memories this summer with our new movie screen.
