|From frou-frou to streamlined.|
I've had this little beauty since I was a teenager and never really knew what to do with it. It sat on a shelf, collecting dust for years (decades). I've noticed recently that miniature mannequins seem to be popping up again. (Were they ever really in to begin with?) I decided to give my frilly mannequin a bit of a makeunder to fit in with my decor.
- Outdated mini mannequin
- Acrylic paint
- Paint brush
- Mod Podge
- Hot glue gun & glue stick
I mixed a charcoal grey paint and gave the mannequin two good coats of it. I let that dry and then sealed it with Mod Podge.
After that dried, I hot glued a strip of black ribbon around the neck of the piece to cover up some old glue that I couldn't remove. And that's it.

Easy enough, right? By the way, that necklace is my Carnelian and Wood Necklace if you're interested in learning how to make it.
