Darling Pincushion Bed

I started with a basic ready made paper mache box which has a nice curved top perfect for this project. Simply pried off the tiny clasps on the front.

Sorry there are no step by step pictures of the process. Although it turned out good and it was fun, this project had a lot of revisions. This was one of those tasks that, let's say, took a bit of patience.

Paper mache box – ready made
Scrapbook paper
Basic school glue
Hot glue gun
Pillow stuffing

First I wrapped and glued the scrapbook paper to the lower portion of the box.

Then glued the black and white fabric onto the top.

Line and glue ribbon, this hides all the ugly edges.

And I hot glued the ruffle trim around the whole box, which I think pulls it all together.

For the pillow.
I simply used iron on adhesive to make the pillow form and filled with stuffing and then hot glued on to the bed fabric.
