Happy Friday! Hope you have had a wonderful week!
It has been such a busy one for me with getting ready for the boutique, and I can't believe it is one week away! I am so excited, but nervous. ;) I am almost done sewing my goodies and building my display.
I finished a frame that I am proud to say I built!! I painted it with a light grey and added some chicken wire. I was worried that it wouldn't stand, since this is the first time I have ever built something, but it does!! It is not perfect, but it works! ;)
Now, it is ready to hang some sweet crocheted hangers, and other pretties.
While I had the chicken wire out, I thought it would be fun to put some on these vintage frames. I have always loved frames with chicken wire, so I am happy to finally have some!
I am going to use the red one to display some of my vintage brooches at the boutique.
And for the pretty green one, a lovely doily to hang on my wall in my living room. Do you have any frames with chicken wire that you like to display things on?
I wanted to add a little color and prettiness to the top of the grey frames, so I made this cute circle garland. I thought I would show you how I made it! I love sewing paper, and there are so many possibilities with different papers and shapes that you can do.
:: First, I used a circle punch, and cut out about 30 pieces using scrapbook paper. These sweet papers are by Crate Paper called Pretty Party.
::Then, pull about 8-10 inches of string out, so you have enough to hang up your garland.
::Next, place the circle piece underneath the foot, and start sewing a straight line down the middle.
::Line up the next circle, and continue this was until your garland is as long as you would like it to be!
::When you are done sewing, you should have a pretty garland!
::That's it! Take some floral Washi tape, and hang to add some prettiness wherever you choose!
Wishing you all a beautiful and crafty fall weekend!!
