Christmas Costume 2014

Saturday, December 27, 2014

One of my friends always complains about how she has way too much blank wall space in her bedroom and no idea how to fill it.  I happen to have the opposite problem, but more on that later.  I thought a good Christmas present for her would be a monogrammed 16x20 in canvas that matches the colors of her bedspread.  I do everything freehand, but I was definitely inspired by some art on Pinterest for the flower wreath.  For that and the pink background, I used acryllic paint.  I was going to paint the monogram, but I knew I wouldn't be able to be as precise as I would be able to with a Sharpie.  Whenever I draw someone's monogram, I usually just google "monogram fonts" and go from there.  Again, I prefer to freehand.  
For our final chapter meeting of the year for our sorority, this same friend and I went out of our way to make the theme "Christmas" and encourage other people to dress up.  I don't like to miss opportunities to be festive.  3 layers of green tulle sewn to ribbon (to tie), about 12 small ornaments, and a $1 tree topper from Target attached to a headband, we were decked out as Christmas trees!  It was a pretty cheap outfit overall, I think it costed us $10 each.  And it led to a pretty entertaining/over-the-top outcome ;)
