The first is a little topiary that I created by hot gluing little empty ribbon spools together. I covered the spools with the papers from the Lullaby line, then added a few tiny photos with twine. The top is 3 ribbon spools that were from K&Co. I left a bit of the ribbon on those and painted the tops and bottoms white. Added a few butterfly buttons by Making Memories also with the hot glue gun and a "baby girl" rub on by Melissa Frances.
(Pics are of my sweet Kati when she was born. The bottom one is Taylor holding her after we came home from her being in ICU for 3 days. Kati was born with a heart condition, it was such a scary time!)Next is a wire holder that I found at AC Moore in the wedding section. It had many branches that you add to it all around the base pole to hang wedding favors on. I decided to just use 2 of the branches. I found a wooden love sign and a chipboard house that I covered with the Forever Family papers by Kelly Shults of Dream Street. Added some photos of my hubby and I and my girls, and then I felt like it needed more pattern to it, so I decided to add some little paper curls to it also. The home rub on is by Melissa Frances. The little rose was created by twisting ric rac around in a circle and stitching it together at the bottom. I hung the love sign with twine from the swirls on the tree and made sure to hot glue everything together really well.
Thanks for looking! I'm off to paint some more! We are changing all of our trim to white in our house (as you can see in my love project photos) and I'm really loving the clean, crisp feel. Working on our hallway, then will move onto the living room next...hopefully after the weekend. It's such a lot of work! Have a great weekend,
