Ferris Wheel Fun!!!

Hi to all of you and thanks for stopping by today! Our inspiration piece this month immediately got my creative juices flowing! Can you see why?! Look at all those fun colors and festive images!
I knew I wanted to make something big, and after a trip down the party supply aisle at my local craft store I located the perfect item to alter...a ferris wheel!!! It is meant to be a center piece for a party with a carnival theme and was originally red and white and quite plain looking! The carnival theme was perfect, but I thought it needed a little more flair to help kick it up to the next level! Now when I look at it, I think it has gone from a simple carnival theme center piece to the perfect glitz and glamour center piece that any girl who loves butterflies and bling would adore! The baskets would be perfect for holding your favorite candy or treat or maybe even a little teddy bear with matching ribbons and bling! (My DH gave me that idea!!!) What do you think?!
I started by covering all of the pieces with patterned paper using the fabulous Homespun Chic collection. I then embellished it with punched and layered butterflies, a handmade multi-layered flower and some vintage lace.

Here you can see some of the details I mentioned above...
Everything spins and moves on this ferris wheel too, which makes it even more fun!!!
I hope you all have a fabulous day!

Happy Hugs!
Juliana
