New from Whimsy Wendy! Ballet Dress Christmas Ornaments
A Whimsy Wendy original design! I'm so excited to share with you my new Christmas ornament just in time for the holidays this year!
First I found some pretty black, sturdy wire that was strong but flexible. I created a pattern in which to bend the hangers into shape using nails pounded into a boards. I think they are darling!
Using felt, ribbon and tulle, I fashioned the ballet dresses to mini-size. The felt bodices have each been decorated individually. It almost looks as though my studio is a mini dressing room.
Trying to get all the colors right, I'll focus on purples and pinks. I was even thinking an elegant one with ecru colored tulle and black bodice.
