This weekend I decided to do some crafting. I started with making crowns for me and my two DDs. We bought some WIDE crochet trim and we cut it to size and stitched it together on the sewing machine. Next we used fabric stiffener and placed the crowns on a round laminated poster so that they would dry and stay shaped. Once the front was dry enough I pealed them off and let stand to dry the inside (the backside would not dry well while sitting on laminate). The next day we each picked our paint out and we painted them with a brush. I used regular Folk Art paint and had no problems with it at all, they came out fabulous. We then picked our glitter color and we added glitter. Then we went through all my crafting supplies and picked out the things we loved to go on our crowns. I hot glued our decorations to our crowns and we were done. They came out really cute. These are great for parties, pretend play and or decoration.
Here is our resident model showing off each crown.
On to something special for me.
DIY Bracelet Stand
from Store Bought Stand
I love how this turned out it goes perfectly with my decor.
This is truly my aesthetic.
From crating to cleaning our closets and moving furniture to relaxing in the bathtub.
I was able to get so much done today because my hubby cooked dinner for us today. He made enchiladas and Spanish rice. It was the best dinner ever.
My tip for today. Do you have a beautiful vintage tea pot that you love?
Put your bath salts in it and then pour through spout for a nice long bath.
It makes a lovely display and is quite useful!
The Tea Pot is a vintage Sadler pot. It has sweet pink roses in it.
The problem was I needed a container for my bath salt.
We are cleaning out all our closets and rearranging some furniture and stuff.
This usually leads to me rethinking how I use things in our home.
Add all this together and you get bath salt in a tea pot.
Also in this picture Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic Candle Holders.
I got them from Target years ago. Each one opens with one side being a door that latches.
I tried to capture the flicker of the candles for you.
The table is actually a vintage typing table (metal) that I painted and then hand painted pink roses on it. I love it so much I was never able to sell it. In the sugar shaker is my powder and the glass apothecary has my epsom salt.
It was hard to capture an image for you of the bath salt coming out of the spout while holding the camera and all but at least you can get the idea.
From all the Princesses here at Tea Cottage Pretties -
have a great week and we will see ya soon.
