a while ago while thumbing through Instagram I saw that Jenn from
Delightfully Noted was having a mystery craft challenge on
Curious me hopped over to see, and before I knew it had
signed up as one of the participants. :)
She sent all (13 gals) the same wooden laser cut frame with a cute filigree edge.
I failed to get a picture of it before I started using it so I took this from her blog.
The winner of this challenge will receive all kind of
The very day my package arrived in the mail I had picked up a small wooden slice at a thrift shop for $.75 cents.
Immediately the thought of creating a 'fall forest' popped
into my head.
I got busy creating because I knew I was going to be gone on a vacation to CA for a week.
I sewed a little wool skirt, painted the center of the wooden frame black, drilled a hole in the wood slice and added a branch, moss, and some paper flowers, and made some sculpey clay pumpkins.
After baking I painted the pumpkins and gave them wire twining's and bead leaves. Last of all I gave them a sparkle of glitter. My take of 'frost on the pumpkins'.
A couple of bleached, dyed, and glittered bottle brush trees and my 'fall forest' was complete and ready to be added to the base.
But it needed a little babe to wander in it. (wink)
Yes, that's who the skirt was for. A few days after I made my forest I found this sweet (naked) cupie doll at another thrift. I knew she was the perfect addition to my 'fall forest'.
I dressed her and made her a fall banner to celebrate the season. A flower garland graces her head. I didn't want to hide that cute hair with a hat.
I sat the little scene on a plate and placed it on top of a black cake stand. An estate sale treasure.
Oh it's just a silly little whimsical thing, but I had fun creating it and it makes me smile. Now I am asking you , (my friends) to hop over to Delightfully Noted and vote for me. That is if you like what I came up with. Yup, that's how the winner of this challenge is chosen. The voting begins on Thursday.
I'd love it if you would throw a vote my way!
And a big thanks to Jenn for putting this together!!
