Late Night Crafting

The past couple of nights I have been up until 2am working on some fun crafts for Annabelle's room.  Now that this house thing is actually moving along, I am so excited about decorating again, and I'm all about getting things ready to move right in as soon as the rooms are done. So... all of these craft/decor ideas I've been collecting on my computer, in my idea folder, and in my head are really starting to come to life!  Here's what I've done the last 2 nights:
All of these will be displayed on the wall in Annabelle's room.  Except for the birdhouse, these items will be part of a wall collage of a variety of items that contain the theme of Belle's room.  You can get a good idea of the color scheme of her new room from these items.
Silhouettes of Annabelle at 1 year and at 2 years old.  Silhouettes are very in right now in the world of decorating so I have been trying to come up with my own spin on it, and this is it. :)  I made the outline of the silhouettes using photoshop, then cut them out using the pretty paper, and glued them to the china.  The first plate is a teacup plate and the second is a cake plate that I got at Renninger's Antique Extravaganza 4 years ago.  I plan to make another silhouette of Annabelle every year.  I'm still not sure if I am going to try to come up with a way to display the year of the silhouette or just leave it as-is. Canvas art.  These two small canvases were pretty simple to do.  I didn't really know where I was going with them when I started, but I really like how they ended up.  I made the silhouette on the first canvas by printing out art I found online and cutting it out with my xacto knife.  The other attachments are all felt stickers.
Wooden initial "D".  I already have a fabric covered "A" that I bought at Anthropologie before she was born, so now I have a "D" to go with it.  This D was painted blue, then decopaged with some fancy paper.  I finished it off with sanding down the edges to give it a worn look. 
Fancy birdhouse.  I plan to make a silhouette of a tree with birds (exact design is still tbd) on the wall in Belle's room, and this birdhouse will hang on the wall like it's hanging on the tree.
I've had so much fun coming up with and executing these projects, but I still have SOOO many more to tackle!  I can't wait to do them and I REALLY can't wait to see them all in the new rooms!

Those are all beautiful and I can't wait to see them hanging on the wall in October.

It's so funny you made silhouettes because I have been thinking about doing that with my girls. Did you take a profile picture and just make a silhouette out of it?
