That pretty much did me in. I'm finished with selling for the time being, at least emotionally! So, in my mind, I'm invested and it's time to begin a few changes and improvements. One big one is Grace's room. We recently took down the crib-turned toddler bed, that was sharing space with a full sized bed and just made the jump to full size bed. We reorganized some things and moved some toys into her room. It looks sooo cute. Pictures are a coming.
I also wanted to redo her bedroom wall with her name and decorate with some empty frames. Can you get a vision for this project? Maybe not until you see it. I bought a bunch of
If you wanted to do something similiar, I thought I'd do a quick tutorial. You'll need:
half of a yard of satin or polyster satin-ish material.
A package of brads of your choice
A green foam wreath
Old picture frame
Paint of choice
an open flame
I choose a green material, because that's what we are doing in G's room. I then cut out two different sizes of circles using measuring cups on the material. Isabelle even helped me cut with her saftey scissors.
This is the part that takes it to wow...I run the edges of each circle through a candle flame. This seals the edge and makes the edges curl in a flower type fashion.
I then doubled up the circles and put a star brad through the center and stuck the brad straight into the flower foam wreath. Repeat about fifty times for this small wreath.
I used ribbon to suspend it from the empty frame. It looks so cool and will look even better on Grace's bedroom wall!
