If you came to the Land of Tarte this Saturday, you know what I am talking about. Every thing was shining and beautiful, put together with a flare that no one I know except the Queen herself can accomplish.
There were lots of familiar faces.
It was fun to be free of my own commitments so I could hang out and lend a hand. Nothing worse when your friends are having a get together and you have something else keeping you from the party.
I have been going to make some crowns for a while, and nothing gets you motivated like seeing a beautiful show come together. The great ideas that aren’t made before the week of a show, are going to have to be left for another time, there are just too many other details to be done. I’m determined to use my time between shows getting some projects ready.
I started with this one, the base is chicken wire,
I covered it with lace and then wallpaper, next I filled in with vintage millenary flowers and jewelry.
This crown would definitely be for a spring gala of some sort, or maybe while gardening to give the flowers some motivation???
This one was made much the same way, except I used white burlap over the chicken wire.
This picture makes it look more like a royal cake than a crown, but you get the idea.
This crown would go with anything, something you could wear for any occasion…
I also decided to make some wire bird nests. So I did and then I thought why cant I just make this wire into a crown??
Well that was fun, so then I made this one.
Can you see the flowers?
The good news, I have lots of wire, I can make lots of nests and crowns.
The bad news… the rust gets all over my hands when I am working with it…
