This is a gift set I did for a baby shower present. I made this adorable monkey hair bow holder, and you will see below, I also created some (ribbon works) monkey hair clips for baby Taylor too! So its a cute matching set! :)
I started out (as usual) by sketching out my idea.
Then took a wood plaque and painted it white.
To help me with the name, I used some foam letter stickers.
And arranged them on the plaque how I wanted them:
Then I sketched out the cute little monkey. I ended up switching the side the tail was one, because there was more room on that side. :)
Then started painting the background pink!
once I did a few coats, and it was dry, I peeled off the foam letters.. you can see its not perfect. Thats fine though, because it will be easy to clean up.
I just continued on and painted in the monkey.
I used a q-tip to do the polka dots. :) I used white, to fix up the letters a bit then started outlining them in brown.
And here it is after I added the ribbon.

I again used velcro on the loop, making it easy to hold those baby bands or elastic headbands!
And here it is completely bare. It turned out soo cute, if I do say so myself! :)
I'll be showing of my work through these great linky parties. Be sure to check them out for other fabulous creative ideas!! :)
