Baby Circle Skirts

Here are a couple circle skirts I found the pattern for on danamadeit.com.  I'm not a sewer so it took longer than 5 min to make for me!  I found pink elastic at Michaels for one of them.  I also made matching head bows for the outfit.  They turned out super cute, but I have no idea how to sew a circle hem without having it bunch up on me....so I've got to do some research on that! 
Enjoy your weekend!  Happy Mothers Day to all moms out there!

Here's the pokadot curtains I'm working on.  I'll post a pic of them hanging up!  I just used a paper towel cardboard for the stencil of circles and then fabric medium & acrylic paint to fill in the dots.  It's taking a long time to do though!

Girls room decor

Ok so it's been a while since I've posted anything soooo here you go.  I did a few things for Bella's room and den area.  Enjoy!

I got the idea on pinterest for this.  I spray painted the "I" and hand painted the aqua wood board with acrylic paint.  FYI The letter is cardboard so when you insert the light bulbs it's pretty flimsy, so I needed to anchor it on a board.  Just put gorilla glue around the I and sealed it to the board.

Bought ruffle ribbon at Hobby Lobby and just hot glued it around the lamp shade. 

Most everything is from Hobby Lobby here.  I painted with acrylic paint all the frames; the LOVE is carboard letters I wrapped with yarn and the Be-You-tiful I just painted a cardboard cutout with acrylic paint and traced the lettering with chalk pen.

Cut wood and stained.  Used wire from a frame hanging kit and put clips to hang her art

Chalkboard spray paint (3 layers) and a oil drip pan from Walmart made a great chalk art area for Bella!  I hung a roll of IKEA paper with a rope to! 

Bought the Sesame Street table at a garage sale and sanded, primed and painted it!


Next I will post curtains I hand painted for her room.  They are soooo tedious though but I'm almost done.  Til then enjoy your spring/summer!
