~Safari Crown and Simple & Sweet Friday's #108~

I wanted to share with you the crown 
I made for my friend, Linda's birthday.
Since it was a safari theme,
I found a glittered Cheetah for the centerpiece.
I used a piece of chicken wire and cut the shape of a crown,
tucking the sharp edges down.
A glittered star for the background.
Green sparkled tulle and feathers added.
I found some star ribbon for the sides 
and silver bead garland for the top.
I had my favorite model try it on.
I loved the way it turned out!
I found the prettiest sequin peacock.
We made a birthday sash with it.
Linda looked so pretty.
I found the cutest terrarium at Home Goods for her.
I painted some pea pots white and then added spanish moss.
I added violas.
It was a perfect gift,
she loves gardening.
Wrapped some pretty things special just for her.
Handmade bows.

Another Home Goods find for Easter.
I think the birthday girl loved all her gifts.
Birthdays are always so much fun with my girlfriends.

Now let's see your creative things you made this week!!
