I mentioned a few times that I have been slowly (but happily) collecting items for Hadley soon-to-be big girl room. I wanted to make something whimsical for her and asked what her favorite animal was - her answer "unicorn"! That sounded good to me so I began searching Pinterest for inspiration and as well as a not too complicated tutorial when I came across this post - that had a both! I made a few tweaks here and there - my horn isn't as cone shaped and I choose to cover my unicorn in a layer of pretty tissue paper (in colors that coordinate with Hadley's room) instead of torn book pages.
Here's the end result!!
Cute right? I was pretty proud of myself after this guy turned out so well so I asked Layla if there was an animal she would like for her room. "Flamingo"! Of course. For this one I had to come up with my own design.
|I used a cardboard tube, that our outdoor rug came rolled on, and some painter's tape to get the shape I wanted.|
|Then I followed the same steps I used for the unicorn and covered the form in gluey paper towels.|
|After it was all dry is was time to pick out paint colors!|
|Some, pink, gold and a pair of washi tape eyes.|
I will take more pictures once these are both hung in the girls' rooms!
