Hats and Crowns!
Hope you are having a great week!
I am trying to function as normal even with a YUCKY cold! Blah!
I wanted to show you a few things I have been working on. The St. Patty's Party hat! I have been decorating my house with the few St. Patrick's Day decorations. I made this party hat last year. I try to do a little decorating for each holiday.
The crown with the stars all around it, is a new one that I have wanted to try for sometime now. It's made of rain gutter screen. I had seen something like it awhile ago on Carol's blog. I immediately wanted to try one for myself, but I had a hard time finding the right screen. I finally found some. I really like working with it, it's quite flexible, and easier than the chicken wire. It seems I have been into neutrals lately, so I used linen and seam binding, after painting the screen with a rusty color. The other two crowns, have a mermaid theme. I was asked if I could do something with mermaids. So far this is what I have come up with. Of course I had to find some vintage looking mermaids. No modern mermaids here!
Well I'm off to take some cold meds, and get back to glittering.
Chat again soon.
