My sister recently introduced me to what is now one of my favorite blogs: Kara Paslay Designs. I LOVE her style, she's very talented, and she has quite a few tutorials for you to follow!
I saw her post about her DIY busts and silhouettes, and I fell. in. love. I have loved silhouettes and busts for awhile but haven't had enough inspiration to move forward in making anything...until now! My absolute favorite is her Metal Bust. I didn't have any scrap metal, but i had a wire hanger! I knew I wouldn't be able to manipulate the hanger very well, but it was worth a try. So...here it is:
It's not quite as elegant as hers, but I'm happy with it! I can't wait to paint the base (also inspired by another of Kara Paslay's projects...), and I think it (or she) will find its home on my bathroom counter...
P.S. The fabric flower is a new style of hair clip I'm working on to add to R+J Handmade... our shop is pretty empty right now, but we have plans to change that sometime soon! :)
