Episode 125: Barbie Doorscape for my Mom!

As Mother's Day is almost here, I wanted to share the doorscape I've been working on all week.  This Barbie doorscape was inspired by my Mom, Barbara.  She loves Barbie, had the original Barbies and passed on her love of Barbies to me.  So, I dedicate this door to you Mom.  Happy Mother's Day!  I love you so incredibly much!!!!

So, the design started out with a new method for me, the curly wreath method.  I consulted Trendy Tree's Tutorial for the how-to.  It took me 6 rolls of deco mesh--2 pink, 2 gray, and 2 white.  I cut my curls in 14 inch strips and wired one of each color together to make bundles made up of three curls using pipe cleaners.  I got about 25-28 curls per roll.  Invest in a self-healing mat and rotary cutter. You will be glad you did!!!

That's a big pile of deco mesh!

It took approximately 80 bundles to cover the 18 foot garland around my door.  I just twisted the pipe cleaners around the garland.  Here's what it looked like:

I had a couple of companions while I was putting up the deco mesh.

I made all the decorations you see below and embellished the ribbon as well.  I will be giving you those tutorials all throughout the week.  So hang tight and check back!

I also made the Barbie cut out.  I will have a tutorial for this as well later this week.

Check out my video:

I hope you all have a very Happy Mother's Day!!!

Thanks for stopping by!
Take time to "Prettify Your Life"!!!
