This scene was inspired by the two chairs which were originally candle holders that I purchased for under a dollar at a garage sale. That same day I also found the polka dot fabric at a garage sale down the lane and there the vision was born. This project is a compilation of re-purposed elements and found objects. Learn how to make a Kleenex box with an eraser, a curling iron and blow dryer from pen parts and more!
This is a box covered in sparkly pink paper – the counter top is a bracelet box lid and the upright is a the lid to an old music box embellished with jewels from the dollar store for bling. The mirror is an old coaster.
A piece of eraser with tissue glued on top
This is a piece of a baby blanket – folded and wrapped in a ribbon
Large Bottle is made with beads – the two smaller ones were finds at a garage sale
This is made from pieces from various pens – black electric tape for the handle and string for the cord. I used the rubber plug from a pen as a holder.
This is made with pieces of pens and two buttons and string. I glued two pink small buttons together with a black string in between and found a small silver hoop from a pen lid to add on the side. The nozzle is also make from pen parts. The stand is a pen plug flipped upside down.
The chairs as I mentioned were candle holders – I covered a small piece of foam in fabric and glued it in place of the tea-lite. I also glued on a few jewels for a bit of bling
A shampoo lid flipped upside down embellished with jewels. The table top has a piece of sparkly paper and a vase made from a pen lid. The floral arrangement is from an old floral display.
A great find at the recycle center!!

Scrap book paper and trim is foam board.
Hint – Keep old pens, and odd and ends from packaging or other things you typically would throw out in a baggy so you have lots of different little pieces to use when you create Barbie accessories.
