I had a busy December and ended up not being able to finish some projects I had hoped to give as Christmas presents. One of those presents was for my grand-daughter Charlotte.
Some of you might recall I made my grand-daughter Brynn a puppet theater last August for her birthday. Well that's what I was to make Charlotte for Christmas.
|The idea behind the puppet theater was it would be used in a doorway.|
The rods are adjustable spring curtain rods purchased from Walmart.
|Puppet theater ready for the birthday girl.|
|Grandpa Bill (my hubby) decided to create a handy wood frame to |
make the theater a little more versatile, in case there was not a handy doorway.
|Brynn's puppet theater in their doorway.|
|So the new improved puppet theater still is designed to work in doorways.|
But notice you no longer can see through the theater.
|So this design uses 3 rods, first holds the top ruffle and back ground of puppet theater and has|
two ties that ties the second level curtain rod to it helps secure the two rods together.
|This photo hopefully shows the ties from top rod that slips through |
slots or openings from blue theater curtains to secure the rods together.
|This photo shows the top rod is front ruffle with back piece to hide puppeteers.|
The lower rod is solid piece of fabric that acts as lower part of puppet theater.
|This photo shows the bottom rod is just a short piece |
of fabric that has tube sewn at top to slide onto the curtain rod.
|The advantage of these puppet theaters: they are easy to rubber band |
the rods together then roll the fabric up and under a bed they can go for storage.
Sure glad to have this Christmas present finally delivered.
