Kaisley's Kraft

SPOILER ALERT! Michelle. . .DO NOT LOOK AT THE PICTURE!!! xoxo

My good friend Michelle is just weeks away from giving birth to her second child, but first girl, Kaisley! We are all so excited to meet her. So excited in fact, we are throwing her a shower next week, along with another one of our friends that is expecting a week before. (Jazmin. . if you could decide on a name, you and your little bit might just get a special crafty item, too!) I saw something similar to this at a boutique (for about $75) a few months back and thought "I could totally do that!" It is a purely decorative ballet costume made from buckram (kind of like canvas), tulle, paint, and glaze with a pretty silk flower and ribbons on a nice wooden hanger.  It was so easy to do if you have a little creativity and even less time.  I thought it would make a cute decoration instead of the traditional baby wreath that could be hung at the hospital and at home in the nursery.  It made me feel super accomplished to finish a craft (seeing as I have no less than 30 projects for myself on my "waiting list". . .waiting to get some free time).
