Congratulations Latanya!  I sent an email- please reply within 48 hours or I'll have to choose a new winner!

Now, on to today's project.

We moved my baby out of his crib, which means he's not really a baby anymore!  Sniff....  So, that means my boys are sharing a room, and my daughter gets her own room!  Makeover!

My daughter, who is almost seven, decided on a ballet theme for her room.  I'm not one for characters and themes in bedding- I prefer to choose a color scheme and use the accessories to create the theme.  So, here is my first project for her room:  Ballerina Vinyl Wall Art.


I cut these shapes from adhesive vinyl with my Silhouette Cameo.  After adhering them to the wall, I thought- wouldn't it be fun if I gave them little tutus?  So, I cut up some tulle from one of my daughter's old tutus, then scrunched it up and hot-glued it to the ballerinas.  I don't know if I should have used hot glue, but I did and it worked great!  I love the three-dimensional look!


I finished it off with a quote appropriate for the room.


Simple, fun, and best of all- free!  (Well, kind of.  I had everything on hand.)

Sharing at some of my favorite link parties this week:  I hope you'll join in and party with me!  Have a great week.

  8. Very sweet! I have a fondness for Ballet. My mother is a classically trained ballerina. I never saw her dance on pointe. How sad.

    Lovely redo, and love that you used some of your daughter's tutu to add dimension to the pieces :)
