I painted it first with pink paint then coated with crackling medium. Last step was to topcoat it with white paint for the cracks to show. After that, I was ready to decorate. I have this ballerina ornament for our Christmas tree and she is so dainty. I knew I needed that more for this than for our tree. I used mini-roses from prima to decorate the waist part of her skirt then outlined the bottom part of the skirt with stickles.
I felt that it needed more so I decided to have flowers hanging from it. I sewed buttons, flower and the ribbon for strength then I used glossy accents to adhere the other end to the fence. The back part of the flowers were covered with buttons too.
Francine was really excited when she saw what I did for her last night. I'm glad I used these colors because they go really well with the paint color in her room.
