I finally finished my dress form project, here it is! I love fairies and dress forms, so why not combine both and I did. This was a paper mache dress form that I had purchased from my local scrapbook store. All the beautiful floral embellishments I used are from I Am Roses. To start off, I painted the entire dress form with a pink acrylic paint. After that I coated it with a crackle medium. I let that dry then I used white acrylic paint as the top coat. I love the end results.
I covered the the middle part of the dress form with Gardenia Curly Petals to mimic the skirt. I added some mini rhinestones and pearls randomly on the petals. I placed some lace trim and Natural Skeleton Leaves on the bust. To add more interest to the neckline, I added some mini pearl flat back pearl trim and a rhinestone button.
On the base of the dress form, I wrapped a White Paper Flowers Spray and randomly placed some Pink Paper Roses, Pink 2 Tone Semi Open Rose Buds, White Paper Roses and more Skeleton Leaves.
My favorite part is the wings. I used more of the skeleton leaves to form the wings, three on each side. They look very delicate and whimsical. I tied some lace trim into a bow and used this beautiful large crystal flower from KARLAS001 Etsy.
To add a little more detail, I place some mini flat back pearl trim down the lace to mimic buttons. So there is my Fairy Dress Form for you guys this Friday. I hope you have enjoyed it as much as I did making it. For a more detailed look, you can view my video here. Have a great weekend everyone!
