Shabby Chicalicious Baby Shower Part II

Our next project included the metal chargers, fishing line, bling, and tulle. We created our own simplified chandeliers. Here is Enchantress #3 froofing the tulle. I love that stuff!
We hung two of them at the center of the main room.
They hovered over Sarah's signature diaper cake.
Command hooks work great to temporarily hang decorations!
After making these I totally want to redecorate my girls' room centered around them!
These homemade chandeliers can be made with any type of frame you desire and you can hang anything you want from it. Sarah, being the genius she is, suggested they would also make gorgeous baby mobiles to hang above a crib! How cute would that be?

Next I had to show you a.) how Sarah uses scrap paper to hide water bottle labels, and b.) these ADORABLE lids she found for regular ol' mason jars to make for some fun sippin'!

These oh-so-cute daisy lids can be found here.
We can't forget the cakes. Another friend Stephanie made these and they were not only beautiful but delicious!




Then...Sarah was inspired by this site ,(which also has a great tutorial) so we searched out our houses as well as antique and goodwill stores to find cute handkerchiefs. We simply used rubber bands and ribbon to hold them on both small and large mason jars.


We added hanging wire and flora. These were so simple and really added that shabby feel to go with all of our bling.


Last but certainly not least...the candy buffet!
I had way too much fun collecting pink and yellow candy for the past 2 months.

A candy buffet not only makes your colors pop, but provides a chicalicious take home favor that the guests can enjoy helping themselves too.



Thus ends the Shabby Chicalicious baby shower. Hope you have been inspired!

We are linking up with our friend Kimba for her weekly DIY party.

What amazing projects you three angels create! You've inspired this old grandmother to recreate herself somewhat. I now explore Hobby Lobby's mark down areas and venture in to second hand stores. I've gotten rid of my junk and am taking on junk from others. What fun!

*Brenna, my 3-year-old granddaughter's is named Brenna. She, and her brother, are the loves of my life.

I love it. Can you tell me where you got you crystals for the chandelier thing?

Beth said...

How much fun! I love it! The mason jars with scarfs is so clever and cute. Nicely done.

Enchantresses Three said...

Most of the colored jewels were found at Michaels craft store. The smaller beads were actually from my little girls' broken bracelets. The longer "crystals" I found at a Mervyns closeout sale. The department store had been using them as present toppers and were selling them in bags of 20 for $8.00. I originally got them to put on my Christmas tree... Hmmm, maybe a few will still make it to the tree this year. :) We will see.

Stopped in from Kimba's blog...Love the baby shower ideas! I am giving a baby shower in September, and we are expecting over 40 women. I am LOVING the water bottle/mason jar lid idea, and the candy bar. I just may need to try and duplicate a couple of these ideas! Thanks for the inspiration!
