Charming Upcycled Ballet Slippers

I saw a pair of up-cycled ballet slippers on one of my favorite blogs  The Feathered Nest 
They were so cute I had to make a pair too! 

As luck would have it I had a pair of pink ballet shoes in my stash.I have to admit, painting them was a bit more time consuming than I had anticipated as they required several coats.
I love the way they turned out. 

These are listed in my Etsy shop.

Rustic French Decor

Inspiration can strike at any time. 

I was taking pictures of some spoons to list in my shop. 
I added roses as an accent in the pictures.  

While I was standing there I thought they look so lovely together that 
I wanted to keep them that way. 

So . . . I took a few of the spoons and wired them together, 
added some vintage lace and a handmade tag. 
And viola the spoon bouquet was created! 

The tag can be used for an inspirational word, a name, 
you could even use them on each guest's plate at a tea party 
or wedding and use the tag as a place card. 

Hmm, maybe I should make more of these . . .

You can find this one in my Etsy shop:
