An Early Spring for My Princess

I know for a lot of you out there Spring can’t come soon enough. For us out here in the desert, it seems like it’s been here for a week now.  After surviving our first summer in Arizona, panic as begun to set it.  With the cold weather disappearing, that means unbearable heat will be here soon.  Still, I can bring a ‘lil spring time to my Alie’s room for her.  I know the pretty flowers and colors of spring will make her smile. 
Alie got this Sleeping Beauty poster from her Auntie Julie’s Mom.  Instead of it being rolled up, it was flat with a piece of cardboard behind it.  If you remember my messy room post, then you may remember reading about my odd obsession with saving pieces of cardboard.  I mean really, isn’t there ALWAYS something you can do with it!  So, I have this nice big piece of cardboard and some turquoise paint.  My sister Kari bought me a few different vinyl wall art sets.  One of them was perfect for Alie’s room and PERFECT for what I decided to do with the cardboard.

Because I am a bit of a klutz, I lined my kitchen with plastic.
Then I painted the cardboard.
Then I added the vinyl stickers and made some faux grass from tissue paper.
To make the grass I cut up tissue paper into squares.
Then, I folded the squares like so.
And glued them onto the board.
This is what it looks like up on her wall.  It’s kinda cute isn’t it?  She LOVES it!!
Thanks for stopping by!

  6. How funny! I can totally relate to the need to collect good, flat pieces of cardboard. You never know when a kid will need to use it for a school project. Your flower poster is so beautiful. You are very creative. Thanks for sharing your creativity with us.
