|my new shelf before my "update"|
|From the front|
I had an accident while putting this thing together and lets just say, the back was no longer usable after it had to be removed so that I could fix my mistake. My husband was kind enough to help me fix the mistake but it was pretty wobbly with out a back. A trip or two to Lowe's and I put the new back on, which is great because if I want to turn the thing (really hard to do because without my additions it's 250 lbs!) it still looks nice.
|I made a couple of patterns on printer paper, cut them, traced them, and cut out four copies |
(you could use more and it would be super full and cute too!)
|I folded each piece in half and glued two that were folded in half to one that I had smoothed flat.|
|glue the last one on like that|
|The word "family" came off of one of those collage pieces of paper that I tend to pass over. |
Thought it was cute here.
|Made a bow out of wire and rafia, the wire just let me make a different shape.|
|I inserted a wire all the way through a long piece of rafia to make it stiff|
enough to hold the curl after I wound it around a pencil
|Sam deal with the big one, I used a sharpie to "stitch" the patch on.|
Can you see the metal pumpkin? It's a place holder I found at michaels, I love it!
|Thought that you could see some details better this way.|
