Over the next few weeks I am going to be doing a few tutorials on punk's nursery. His room is bright and colorful with a lot of different shapes and sizes accenting everything from his crib to his dresser. Hunk thinks that it is girly, I think he is wrong. Sooo, we agree to disagree.
Anywho, this garland/bunting (I am not quite sure what to call it) hangs in his room. I got the idea for the bunting from a picture on Dear Lizzy..I fell in love right away. I am sorry to say that I don't have a step-by-step tutorial for you to follow, but it is really EASY, I promise!
Supplies you will need:
1. Cut out your fabric and paper. You will have the main body (green fabric and cardstock), four circles for the eyes, a triangle for the nose, and a tummy.
2. Sew the tummy to the main body.
3. Then sew the main body and cardstock together, remember to leave a small opening, though, so you can stuff it with you batting.
4. Use the fabric glue to attach the nose, circles, and the buttons.
5. Let dry.
6. Once you have made all you owls you will then overlap them over one another and sew them together.
This is what the garland should look like from the back, you will see that I used a zig-zag stitch to give it a little more character
I sewed each owl at a bit of a different angle so it wasn't perfectly even.
O.K now I can be honest with you. I actually wasn't going to start the nursery tutorials until after Halloween, but the tutorial I did last night was a disaster. Really. I am not lying.
Fact: candy corn and pumpkins do not mix.
Last night at FHE, Hunk and I were arguing over who could carve the best pumpkin. I got this bright idea that instead of carving out the inside of the pumpkin I would just drill holes in a pumpkin....with all the junk still in it. Then I decided I would stick candy corn in the holes to make it look spooky, scary, I am really not sure what look I was going for. Hunk did a bat on his pumpkin.
Well this morning, this is what the pumpkin looked like. All the candy corn had melted and was running like the Nile River across my porch.
