Welcome to Fairyland

We have houseguests this week! Which is why it's been so long since my last post, and probably a little slow to get another one up after this. I've been busy getting the house ready - guest room cleaned, craft room "in order," and everything put away that shouldn't be out in the first place.

I did give myself some time to make this hanging for the guest room door. (I apologize for the terrible photos - we finally got rain here in TX and I waited until then to take photos!)

I used a piece of recycled chipboard for the base and covered this with a piece of Prima "blooming happiness" paper and a layer of peachy pink tulle. I added stitching around the border of the paper.

I printed out the vintage image, which I had altered by adding "Welcome," and then centered it on the background. I added some Stickles here and there to make the fairies sparkle. Then I added a ribbon border and started layering on the flowers - some vintage and some new. Here's a closeup of the "bouquet":

I added a hand-dyed crinkled seam binding hanger and tied on more vintage trims to complete the piece. Then I made a nighttime dash to Walmart to find those little sticky hooks so I could hang this on their door.

I love having house guests - it's one SURE way to get me to clean my house (grin). That's such a sweet door hanger! Enjoy your company and the holiday weekend ahead!
