Creating a candy wonderland

To say my daughter has a mild obsession with all things sweets is a huge understatement. It’s even gone so far as invading her room.

Months ago, she announced that her room theme was “boring” and didn’t really match her personality/interests. So we set out to create her own little candy wonderland, complete with…

 

 

And, giant lollipops to adorn her bed. These were super easy to make and were created with a flat disk of styrofoam, paint, dowel rod, cellophane and ribbon.

Using the same cellophane and ribbon, we wrapped plastic dessert plates to create a wall full of individual hard candies.

And her pièce de résistance…

 

 

Who knew that a $5 mirror from Target could look so good?

Love this. THe gummi mirror reminds me of the lamp in iCarly. It was so cute and her room is awesome.

Love the collage at the top. Did you guys make that yourselves?

Krystyn said...

Wait? She painted that..with the shading and all?

That's some serious talent. The room looks great.

I love that she knows what she wants and executes it. We've lived in our house for almost 4 years and our room is still the same nasty color the previous owners made it with a really old and nasty bed spread to boot.

Maybe I'll send pictures and ask for help.

That custom artwork was OUT OF THIS WORLD. WOW, just WOW! I am thoroughly impressed. And suddenly hungry for a Snickers :)
