..............................and let me tell you, it ain’t easy!
For Harper’s room, I knew I wanted to use her beautiful bedding as inspiration. I thought about maybe covering some wooden rods with ribbon and then attaching flowers to them somehow so that they hang down as if they were falling, or maybe getting a tree branch, painting it a color complimentary to the room and hanging flowers or maybe leaves from it (and maybe even attaching a cute little birdie as if it’s sitting on the branch), but I knew that balancing the hanging objects would be a challenge. So, not knowing what I really wanted, I just decided to look around with an open mind.
Then, low and behold, there it was! (The clouds parted, the sun shone down, and the angels started singing...................Aaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhh.) I so love it when that happens.
And each acrylic stone even has a shiny silver back which sparkles like crazy when the light hits it……..MORE BLING FOR YOUR BUCK! Can you see the reflections of sparkle on the ceiling and wall in the photo below?
The large package of beads included a nice assortment of colors and shapes, including lots of flowers - which was perfect for this project. I decided to make one strand of beads to hang on the tip of each metal flower pedal – 24 pedals total. I made the strands in the center of the flower longer, used shorter strands in the next row out, and even shorter strands along the outer edge, just to make it a little more interesting and cascading.
