Yeah, he quoted that.
***Disclaimer: No, I didn't actually do this project while on vacation in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. I wrote this post a few days ago and just didn't get to post it until now. Enjoy!
On to the point... there is a blog called young house love that is all about home improvement and design. I read it occasionally because there is some really cool stuff and the husband and wife that write the blog are hysterical. I found this post about a ribbon chandelier that the mom made for her baby daughter's closet. So I gave it a go.
I wanted to find some ribbons that would go with my spring green theme and still coordinate with the ribbon that I used on the flip flop hangers.
So, as usual, I went to Michael's. I happened to be at my mother-in-law's house at the time of the proposed project, so she joined me for our outing to the Michael's in York, PA. We looked only in the $1 clearance ribbon basket and found these goodies:
Looks pretty good, huh? I also found a 9-inch embroidery hoop while I was there. I only used the inside piece and painted it white (on my MIL's ironing board).
After the paint dried, I strung some thin, clear bead ribbon around it from both sides.
I tried to cut the ribbon in the general length that I wanted, but still making them all different lengths.
I used glue dots and little green sparkle things and hung it in my closet so it is the first thing I see when I open the closet door.
Now, I know what some of you are thinking. I sound like a little girl, right? This was originally something that was supposed to be for a baby's room, right? Yes, yes, I thought of all of that. And I dismissed it completely. Because I smile every time I see it :-)
