Les Belles Fleurs Chandelier

My third workshop at the Artistic Affaire was with Kristen Robinson. We were given this fluffy tulle "kit" to work with!It contained ribbons and papers and vintage images and pearl buttons and rhinestone brads and even rosarie chain with crystal beads.
It contained a metal wreath form to be used as the "base" for the chandelier. The first step was creating little tulle flowers - by gathering up long strips with a needle and thread. Then we created little blue centers for the flowers with shiny blue elastic ribbon and pearl buttons.
We created flowers with cupcake papers and attahced them to banner triangles and hung them with ribbon from the wreath. We made more flowers with printed blue paper and copies of script writing - copied double sided - what a cool idea!
Here is the chandelier hanging in my guest bathroom. The cream and blue works perfectly with the tile and wall colours. (i need new towels!) I added my vintage plant stand to the counter - and filled it with all the goodies i swapped and purchased at the artistic affaire. Topping the stand is the bird box i received from Mariasela. Thanks Kristen for a great workshop. Check out her blog for some more how-to's.
