Quite some time ago, I was at a garden show and noticed the most beautiful mannequin dressed in florals. She was actually quite captivating and drew an audience. I was hooked. Every year I take some time and design a new mannequin.
The entire process from designing the mannequin, to the gathering materials, to the finishing it off is quite relaxing.
This year I decided to create both a Christmas Mannequin and a New Year’s Mannequin. My Christmas Mannequin is on display in one of our local shops, The Nest Collective and was given the name Mrs. Christmas. I was very excited to learn that Mrs. Clause had won first prize in the tree decorating contest.
Below is a tutorial on how I put together my Christmas mannequin. I hope you find the time to make one too! And if you do make a Christmas mannequin, send me the pictures as I would love to share with everyone.
