I found some new display pieces at the Goodwill to give it a bit more verticality to my table and think they worked really well.
I like the wiry building for the earring display the most. It is kind of wonky and fun, just like my creations. I did well for the show given the weather conditions and the smaller crowd. I also had great table neighbors, that makes all the difference when the sales are slow and you have four hours to kill!
I just loved this display at the entrance with the Mums and the pumpkin!
We are having another event at work and prize ribbons were required. This one is a pumpkin decorating contest and they asked for the one and a two and a three!
The black is crepe paper that I gathered, the paper layer is a page from a vintage Greek text Bible. The number part is a covered pog to which I attached a sticker with the number. I was looking for an eerie font and chose Chiller! The ribbons are orange wired ribbon that I glued some scraps of Spooky Boo ribbon to. I got that ribbon a couple years ago on a package of candies and saved it for that special project!
I love them and hope the wining recipients do, too!
So have you been wondering what happened with these faces? They got bodies and a bit of sassiness.
And then they got a bit smaller…
Now they have bails on the back and they are pendants. And I must admit the idea was not original. I was inspired by this lady’s design.
We had a special event at work last week and it was fun to get my craft on! I made 15 prize rosette ribbons for an event we held. I gathered the crepe paper, then glued down the circles of scrapbook paper on the front and back, added a bit of glitter. I finished it off with some ric rac, silver ribbon, and satin blanket binding that I tore into strips to add some rustic charm.
They were well received and I enjoyed watching the participants proudly wear them.
I also had to make a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd prize ribbon for the game we played.
It is always fun to get a ribbon!
