Making Shower Decorations

shower decorations - dresses

I have something a little different today… this week I was busy making a few shower decorations. These cute little paper dresses just filled my heart with joy. So today I thought I would mix things up with a little crafty post.

Happy Sunday, friends! πŸ’š

I wanted to make a wedding dress banner after seeing a few of them on Pinterest.

I played around and sketched a simple dress outline. Then I made a template of the shape using some heavy paper.

For the final paper dresses I used a bright white scrapbook paper that had a little weight and texture.

Ah, pretty iridescent fabric and white tulle for the skirt…

I cut a small square of each material and then hand stitched the top edges together so that it would gather at the waist area of the skirt.

I also glued down some pretty ribbon at the bottom of the skirt which worked well.

To secure the skirt in place, I glued it down and then hand sewed it to the paper dress. After that just a small piece of shiny trim was glued down to finish it off and add a little bling. πŸ˜„

Now that they are finished, I am not sure if I will make a banner or use them to decorate a few tables. The shower is still months away so I have time to decide. I need to start working on the shower invitation next. More to come on that.Β 

Hope you enjoyed seeing my pretty dresses and the reason for my happy dance this week.

Until next time, share a smile and be well.

  1. I love your art and ideas! I am a novice art journalist and after seeing this post, I tried a version of it with the chiffon that was wrapped around the flowers my hubbie got me. I don’t know how to post a pic in the comment or I’d show you. It was so fun to create. Thank you and keep your ideas coming! Marla
