Dress Up Sign

>> Friday, January 21, 2011

My girls (and son- we've got dinosaur & superhero costumes!) love to play dress up. I rigged up this little dressing area for them in our play room, but the spot we have it in has this unsightly plug right above it. I wanted to make something to cover it up.

I grabbed this little unfinished sign I found at the Dollar Tree recently...
and covered it in some paper from the Domestic Bliss line.
I then ran a strip of adhesive around the back edge of the sign and roughly pleated some crepe paper around it.
So far, so good.
I wrapped baker's twine all around it, by snipping little areas in the crepe paper.
I then finished it off with a few flowers from Bella Blvd. from my stash, and chipboard embellishments & die cuts from the Domestic Bliss line. I fussy cut out the fancy girl from one of the papers for the final touch.
