So today's part of the Inspiration to Creation series is 'The Projects' - better known around LCW as homemade. There are two projects in particular that I wanted to do for you today. The first one being the fabric chandeliers. Remember, the inspiration...
Alrighty - here is what you need to recreate them:
- Embroidery Hoops - always an odd number
- White Spray Paint - optional
- Variety of different fabrics in sheer and lightweight materials
- Glue gun
- Needle and Thread - optional
Second: When the paint is dry, working with one hoop at a time, take a piece of fabric and wrap it around one hoop. Mark the spot on the fabric where it should be cut, then cut the fabric to size. Do this for all the remaining hoops and fabric.
Third: Once all hoops and fabrics are measured, run the glue gun around a portion of the inside of the hoop. Working quickly so the glue doesn't dry, place the end of the fabric onto the glue from the outside of the hoop! Remember - you want the outer portion of the hoop covered, so you MUST start from the outer side of the hoop and fold the fabric over to the glue on the inside. Continue this process until all the fabric is glued to the inside of the hoop.
Fifth: If you want you can stitch up the ends on the hoop so the fabric is attached together and doesn't hang open you can do so. Just keep in mind you don't want to pull the thread too hard as you stitch otherwise it will pull the fabric and it will hang funny. This is optional...you could always take a short cut and add a drop of glue or even a glue dot (I heart glue dots and this was my quick and easy way) in a couple spots to keep the fabric together. But really, it's your choice loves :-)
And here is your finished product...minus the thread/string to hang...oopsies forgot about that when I took the picture...
The second project is recreating the gold glasses...
Tomorrow I am showing you two more projects to make in order to recreate this table...and then Friday I will be putting it all together for you! I'm off to eat now...see you tomorrow with more goodness ;-)
