Wall Flowers

Happy Monday, and welcome to {The Paisley Cupcake!}

If you have read my posts the last few weeks, you might not know that there is a little girl living in my house... but she threw a tiny tantrum and told me if I don't take a break from the {icky} boy posts, she'll pack up and move to grandma's house. And since I kinda like her: 

Here's a {girly} post!

I got these coat pegs at a yard sale for {50} cents! 


I popped off all the layers, (they were glued on and came off with {minimal} damage...}

Then sanded and spray-primed these ladies.

A little {mod-podge}, scrapbook paper, and acrylic paint later...

These are going to be {adorable} in my baby girl's bedroom! 

-AND- since Herr Handsome has a jigsaw he loves to play with, I think I will use this as a template for Christmas gifts for my nieces... and for my nephews... rocket ships? choo-choo trains? dinosaurs?
