I'm so excited with what I have to share with you today! It's a huge project that's been consuming my life for the last couple of weeks. Do you remember when I made that bird canopy for Ellie's bed last year?
Well, Lu's been reminding me that her bed's overdue for a makeover too. If you know anything about this kid, you know that she always thinks BIG. So I knew I wasn't just going to get away with a canopy this time.
There were requests for fish, and sea stars, and huge jellyfish that would make a bloom above her bed. Seriously crazy stuff, right? But then I got caught up making them with her and we actually had a lot of fun. I'm going to be sharing the projects a little bit at a time over the next couple of weeks as they are all going to take a while to write up. I'm going to show you a sneak peak of all the projects in the room today though, as well as a really simple look into how we make our sea star garland which is so simple...and looks pretty awesome I think too!
Before I get into the tutorial though let me give you a little tour of the room. First, meet Mr. Pufferfish:
And those giant jelly fish I was talking about? Yeah, they might be my favorite. I love them! I also love that I didn't spend a single dollar on fabric because my scrap bin had lots of cool fancy fabrics left over from all of the dresses that the girls have begged me to make over the years.
Like I said before, I've got lots to share with you! Today though I thought I'd focus on giving you a little peak at how to make this sea star garland that I made out of salt dough. It was so simple it's almost not really a tutorial...but hey, that's good right? Wouldn't this look so fun in a beach house too?
Let's get started!
