Today, I thought I would share how I dressed up my mannequin for my booth. Every girl likes to slip on something new! I guess I should back up and show you my mannequin that I did up for an event around Christmas.
I started by making a hoop skirt for her.
Then came the layers. First, I wrapped a fitted sheet around the hoop skirt. Next came wiring on different Christmas tree branches. Then wrapped my $1 red tablecloth find.
As you can tell, she isn't quite there yet. I grabbed just a tad bit of cheap green shear material to add. Cinched in the waist with a little bling. The finishing touch all ladies need pearls!
I fell in love with this. I had to display her in my bedroom during Christmas. When it was time to take down Christmas, I knew I just had to keep dressing her. As many of you know, pinterest is wonderful and dangerous. I found so many ideas. I decided I wanted to sit her on a bookshelf and make it seem as if everything was peeking out from under her skirt. This is what I was able to create.
I think it would have been a bit better if I would have been able to hoop it out to create the look I want but with limited space and time, this was what I have come up with. I wonder what I can come up with next!
Love to hear what you think!
