Sooo.. last weekend was a very crafty one XD We organized a surprise party for my grandma's 70 birthday and I decided to make some nice decorations on my own. I spent the week looking for inspiration and I found very nice stuff. In the end I made 3 things to decorate the room (it took me the whole morning and lukily someone helped me with the streamer chain) and this was the final effect (the photo sucks cause the light in my livingroom is terrible >__> )
The streamer chain is awesome: colorful, very stenographic and damn simple! Just cut the streamer in pieces, join the ends and pinch them together with a the stapler. Loop the next piece of paper through the first ring and do the same. This until you've reached the desired lenght!
The things hanging from the ceiling are the combination of two tutorials I found online:
Sewing Swap - Pocket Doll I swap with Swap-bot! "Follow the tutorial, or use your imagination to make your partner a lovely little pocket doll. The only requirement is the size. It must be smaller than 3 to 4 inches tall without the hat. Why? Because otherwise it won't fit in a pocket, silly!"
Yup that's snow! I took the picture in the Berlin zoo. It was February and very cold and it has been positively strange to see dromedaries and elephants under the snow.. they seemed fascinated by the white flakes too..
