With this photo as her inspiration, my daughter created this...
from the flowers we used on the centerpieces at the wedding. :)
The wreath will hang horizontally, like this, above the crib. We decided we are officially calling this element a "Crib Halo". She used a grape vine wreath and hot glue to attach the flowers.
While she was making the crib halo, I was making this...
For this wreath, I wrapped an embroidery hoop (again) with a strip of neutral fabric and then created the fabric roses with all neutral fabrics. To make the roses, you fold a strip of fabric in half lengthwise and begin to roll and twist. All along securing with a low temp glue gun.
When I got done, my daughter said, "Glitter. It needs glitter." She was right! A little spray adhesive followed by a generous sprinkling of silver glitter, and it was really pretty!
Just fun. :)
You may be thinking that these sure aren't colors for a baby girl's room. Well, she's going for pretty and feminine not necessarily "baby". I think it's going to be wonderful. I hope to get to their house to take pictures of it when it's all done to show you.
Her last project for this post:
Her inspiration for these came from some shop online and they were selling the framed silhouettes for $160 each. She bought these frames at Target for $10 each then found free images online. She printed them out on just plain white paper, stapled it to black paper along the outside, then carefully cut out the silhouettes. It really only took her about 5- 10 minutes to cut each one out.
These will hang 2x2 on one of the walls in the nursery.
I love silhouettes and remember trying to draw my kids' silhouettes with a big lamp and white paper on the wall years ago. This was before all the digital abilities. I wasn't too successful. Ha!
(She was ready to leave and take the projects with her so that's why the quickly shot photos and the jammy clad 6 year old helping out.)
Thanks for stopping by!
