I am thankful to be blog friends with Patti over at Pandora's Box.She actually lives close to MacKenzie Childs farm and has even worked in their store this past year! Oh what a dream! Patti shared with me the actual tree that they had decorated in the store last year...
I think it is just 2-die-4 wonderful and whimsical. So this year I thought I would work even harder to replicate it than I did last year. I don't have even one thing that is an actual MC piece but have made plenty replicas of their items.
I found black and white harlequin cloth at Hobby Lobby
Using acrylic paints and textile medium, I painted the fabric to look more like MacKenzie Childs Courtly Check.
Here is the result after adding a red gross-grain ribbon to the border...
Then all I had to do was decorated much like I did last year, however this year I added my version of their teapot to the top of my tree...You can also go back and see my post on the teapot I painted HERE.
It's all so fun and whimsical and I adore the contrast between the back and white with pops of red, don't you?
You can look back at my tutorial on how I made these MC look ball ornaments from last year HERE.
