NOTE TO SELF: Do NOT just throw things in the cupboard willy nilly not helpful in the long run!
I had no idea what I'm going to end up with or even what I'm going to make when I started out.
First I brought a few mini trees and door rings. I thought I could decorate these (The door rings might even force me to make a few doors to HANG them on? Or not? So once I had my items to decorate I looked at my bead boxes. A mess looked back at me so I spent a day sorting out all my beads. I then wondered if I had and Christmas flowers? So I need to look for my flowers... I found them but they were in a right mess! So I spent a day sorting them out.
I had repainted some of these Barbie plants and flowers in the past.
Left one I painted
Pot in the middle has not been painted
Above... Flowers to be painted
Below... Re-painted flowers from the Barbie Flower ShopI purchased a tin fridge with two shots glasses and some booze (not sure what to do with the booze as I don't drink and parents only drink wine give it to a friend I guess?) Below are the shots glasses filled with glass gravel from IKEA.
Below are a mixture of flowers some are Mattel and some Rement fixed into bead vases with 'blue-tack' you could also use glue dots. If you want to keep the flowers in the vases permanently then you can glue them in.
These are just a few ideas and next week I will show you how I made them and how to re-paint (Mattel) flowers and plants.
