Pink Satin Ruffle Tree

~~~~~~~~~~~~~ New & improved!!~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I was teaching a class on my student Bailey suggested that I
put bling on the tree.
What a great idea!
It is so cute and just what it needed!
Thanks Bailey!!

These cute little "blings" are stickers.
You just peel and stick!

I am gearing up for Christmas and wanted a unique Christmas



tree in my studio.




I had this Styrofoam cone in my craft supplies and some pink satin ruffle




that I bought for something else and never used.




I just used small straight pins to attach the ruffle to the styrofoam.



Pin the ruffle as you wrap it around the styrofoam.



Keep wrapping it around the cone



until you get to the top.









Take the ruffle and fold under the raw edge








and then pin some more to really secure it.
I used alot of pins to make sure it wouldn't come undone.








I added some pink feather boa to the top to hide the pins.









Super cute and easy!!





Now I am ready for Christmas.



(I wish it was that easy!!)

From Drop Cloth to Painted Rug

I had a wheelchair ramp built going into my house for my 6 yr old who is in a wheelchair. I have loved having it. He is getting so big that it was getting difficult to get him in & out of the house. This is so much easier!   Here's the problem:  It's ugly and my welcome mat/entry rug doesn't fit! No bueno!!   I looked for a rug that would fit but didn't want to spend a lot of money on it. So...I decided to make my own.   I got a canvas drop cloth from Lowe's for just under $10.00.    I gave it a good ironing to get the creases out.   I had some white house paint from another project and painted the drop cloth. (Tip: Even though this is a drop cloth the paint soaked through to the backside. I put a plastic drop cloth under it to protect my table.)   Then I stenciled it.  I was going to do a different pattern and transfer it on to the drop cloth but I already had the stencil and let's face it...
