I added a couple of items to Aidan’s room today.
The first is this little coat hook. At the mall weekend before last, a woman and her husband had a booth set up where they were customizing and selling these coat hooks, growth charts, lap desks and door plaques. I got this one for Aidan and gave it to her for Easter. She loves seeing her name on things and I hung it low enough so she can hang up her jacket when she gets home from school.
The second addition was this hairbow holder that I made her. I bought a bare wooden plaque, some paint and a prepainted wooden shoe. I painted the plaque white, decoupaged the lettering on from my computer, glued on the shoe and then sprayed it with a clear gloss. If I could go back, I wouldn’t have decoupaged the paper on because it doesn’t look as good as it could have. I would adhere it with spray on craft adhesive and then just cover over it with the clear gloss. Then I staple-gunned the ribbons to the back and nailed a picture hanger to it and hung it up. It’s a great way for me to keep up with her growing bow collection.
