Change is Good

I love change. Not big life-changing change,
but the kind that makes you smile....like
getting new furniture, or painting
old furniture.....you know, fun change.

Well, I was bored today, so I made a little change.

I decided to give my wall hanging dress form a makeover.

Now, maybe I took the long way around the block,
but that's usually the way I do things, and I was having fun.

I started out by decoupaging the whole thing with newsprint.

Then, I added a layer of cotton batting. I love this stuff!!

And finally, I covered the whole thing in muslin,
and added some vintage lace pieces and some bling.


And look at this gorgeous soldered charm necklace
made by the talented Jill at Gypsy Brocante.

It was the perfect finishing touch!

Hi Debi~
I love the look of the dress form. I think I need to make one like this..it looks so much classier than just the wire form. I collect them so I have a few to play with. Thanks for sharing this idea.
