Phew!!! After weeks of neglecting my wifely and motherly duties it's finally done!!! So, Here it is...


Here it is half-wired with 20-gauge floral wire and 30-gauge electrical wire...


...and wired with 120 3mm led's that run off of 3.6 volts...


...and then paper-mached with newspaper and mod-podge...


...and, after several coats of paint, hanging in my living room from the bottom of an old lamp, painted white and flipped upside-down, with some silk flowers, a few birds, and some butterflies...


...and here are a few of the details...





I hope you like!!!

Wow. That looks great! the birds and butterflies kind of take away from how awesome the flowers and stems look. I love it though. I so want it.
