I'm breaking up the birthday party into a few posts to make it a little more user friendly. Check out the whole party HERE.
For the longest time, I've had all of my pointe shoes sitting in a pile in my hope chest. I've always wanted to decorate with them some how. So I decided to incorporate them into the decor. I used two pairs of my shoes to drape over the wreaths that I made. I think these wreaths will look really cute in my girls bedroom!
The first wreath was quite simple. Just spray paint a twig wreath, then add sprigs of silver!
I covered a straw wreath in pink ribbon.
Then I cut strips of tulle, about 16 inches long. They were from a spool, so I didn't need to measure the width. I tied them into a double knot around the wreath. I did 10 pink pieces, then 5 white pieces all the way around.
Ta-Da! I LOVE how it resembles a tutu. Then I wrapped my old point shoes around the top.
