I thought I might forget the doors I've been mumbling about for now and try and decorate a few Christmas items.
NOTE TO SELF: Make sure you have everything to hand BEFORE you start!
NOTE TO SELF: Do NOT just throw things in the cupboard willy nilly not helpful in the long run!
I had no idea what I'm going to end up with or even what I'm going to make when I started out.
First I brought a few mini trees and door rings. I thought I could decorate these (The door rings might even force me to make a few doors to HANG them on? Or not? So once I had my items to decorate I looked at my bead boxes. A mess looked back at me so I spent a day sorting out all my beads. I then wondered if I had and Christmas flowers? So I need to look for my flowers... I found them but they were in a right mess! So I spent a day sorting them out.
I had repainted some of these Barbie plants and flowers in the past.
Left one I painted
Above... Flowers to be painted
Below... Re-painted flowers from the Barbie Flower Shop
I purchased a tin fridge with two shots glasses and some booze (not sure what to do with the booze as I don't drink and parents only drink wine... give it to a friend I guess?) Below are the shots glasses filled with glass gravel from IKEA.
Below are a mixture of flowers some are Mattel and some Rement fixed into bead vases with 'blue-tack' you could also use glue dots. If you want to keep the flowers in the vases permanently then you can glue them in.
Sorry if you have already seen all this but I hope you can get a few ideas?
These are just a few ideas and next week I will show you how I made them and how to re-paint (Mattel) flowers and plants.
