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.
