I made this tutu out of paper mache, ribbon, little flowers, and trims.
I think it turned out beautifully.
Front view
I did paint the paper mache dress part

side view
 I got this by using wired ribbon and cutting the wire part off at the top, and then flaring the pleats out that I put into the ribbon before attaching. I also added gathered tulle under the ribbon

And the back view
 I drilled holes through the dress form, and after putting on the skirt ,and bodice trim, I then threaded the seam binding through for the tie.
I am  going to make more of these. And can't wait to see how they turn out.

Got some more cork ornaments done

I just love doing these. It's also neat when you go to drill the hole through the cork you can smell the wine. Yum.

All you need is a string or chain, buttons, charms, beads and glue.
And the main item A wine cork

So I saw these Cork ornaments on Pinterest, and I thought they were gorgeous. One thing nice about them, is you get to enjoy drinking a bottle of wine to get the Cork. So I decided to try it and here is a picture of what I came up with.
I think my favorite is the one with the birds nest at the top, although the bee is pretty neat.
Okay you're wondering what you do with these besides just hanging them around. well you put them around the neck of a wine bottle, would that not  make a terrific gift, a bottle wine, and a wine cork ornament, in a wine box. Now my mind is going. And I'm going to have to figure out how to do a wine box. So I hope you like the picture. Please ignore  that little section hanging down from the bee on the right hand side . I hadn't taken the heat gun to it to get rid of all the glue webs ,but it's gone now.
