I don't post on here a lot, I need to change that. I'm STILL not up to 10 posts yet! Alas, it's still links for me  Sad

So a few years ago, I got this old dress form from my grandma. Sadly, upon closer inspection, it was revealed to be broken and shedding dry-rotted foam. Yuck. So I proceeded to set it in my hallway where it remained as an eyesore and hat rack for a couple of years. Today I was rummaging through some old stuff and found my green Christmas lights and wondered what on Earth I could do with them. Then I got this idea...

Broken, so sad. I'm stripping off the old, nasty fabric.


Halfway there! All duct taped together.


Final product!


You can't really tell from the picture, but the lights are very bright. And contrast with the orange dress in a fabulously tacky way.  Smiley
