First, I used several of the left over decorations from my daughter’s Carnival Birthday Party. Next, I made our very own “Now Showing Sign”. This was super easy…
I purchased a frame from Hobby Lobby (used a 40% coupon) so it cost me just a tad over $5.00, used a piece of scrapbook paper I had in my stash, cut out “Now Showing” with my Silhouette placed it on the glass and used a dry erase marker to write the name of the movie we watched… The Sandlot (one of my favorites from my childhood!). I love that we can use it over and over.
While on my hunt to recreate the perfect summer movie night I ran across a new product… The 3M Pocket Projector at Target and had to have it. Let me just say this projector is awesome! It hooks up to the iPhone or iPad (we used the iPad) and projects the movies. All I could imagine was the fun my daughter, neices, and nephews would have (while creating great memories for them).
So, I decided to show you today how to set up everything for your very own backyard movie night! I don’t know about you but I am not very tech savvy and thankfully with this, I didn’t need to be.
Let me introduce you to the 3M Pocket Projector!!!
For the mount, we used a camera tripod and it worked perfectly.
