Shabby Chic Hat Box

As you can see from the project I've been working on, I've been in touch with my feminine side! This is a plain, paper mache box that has been spray painted, lightly sanded, then embellished with patterned papers, ink, self-adhesive pearls, gorgeous Prima flowers, leaves, lace and ribbon. It wasn't difficult to do and was very, very satisfying to the lady within.

P.S. Have a close look at the bow tied with ribbon... see that hat pin? It collects dust no more! Heh heh...


  1. Wowee absolutely stunning love the colours.
