Dainty's candy delights

Welcome to the new look blog everyone.

Hope you like the new look, I wanted to give it a freshen up and make the page look more professional. 

So today I’m sharing a fun upcycle job that I done this week. 

This was probably the most fun and creative upcycle as I could use lots of fun colour and I got to practise making bunting too. 

This candy cart is going to be used at a communion party this weekend, I went with a stripe candy roof in mint green and as it was for a child I wanted to keep it fun and bright. 

In my last sewing class I learnt how to make bunting, so this was my first attempt at making a two metre string bunting. 

As I didn’t have enough fabric left from the roof I used some hessian material for the bunting too. 

For the roof I measured out one and a half metres of fabric and sewed a hem all around.

I sewed on little strings so it would tie to the middle wood panel. 

I got some of this netting/tulle material from hickeys and was only €2 a metre. 

I wrapped it around the pillars and them made little bows from the left over stripe material and stuck on with a pin. 

I have the whole cart a quick lick of paint in white gloss just to freshen it up so it would be sparkly clean.

However the cart was not safe from blondie who as always, done a little quality control on the ribbons. 

Let me know what you think of the new blog look.
