As of late, my daughter always comes from her bedroom in the morning wearing something entirely different than that which she wore to bed. Apparently, upon waking up, she marches over to her cupboard and selects 3-7 articles of clothes (generally dresses and skirts) and two-14 accessories to don during her entry into our bedroom, using a stuffed animal and comforter in tow. It is an amusing and beautiful item but also begins the day with a serious wreck.
I have been looking for a means to maintain her accessories clean (yet still available for a three-foot person), without including more cabinets or boxes into the space and without the probability of a tiny hand unintentionally pulling a hook from the wall…
During a late night Amazon arrangement I saw these cute flamingo lawn decorations that I had “saved for later” only waiting for the perfect excuse to purchase them, and sew! What 3-year-old would not adore a bedazzled flamingo in their area?
The long necked bird is ideal for bracelets, bracelets, headbands, and crowns, and provides a lively disposition to any room.
- Gold spray paint
- Flamingo lawn decoration (this is actually the only one I used)*
- Large flower pot (at least eight″ large)
- Paint or trimming (I utilized three yards of 3″ broad trimming)
- Glue gun (if utilizing cloth trimming)
- 1 styrofoam disk to match in the base of the kettle (6)″x1″)
- 1 styrofoam half ring to the centre of the kettle (8″)
- Scarves, boa, or cloth
- Little magnet or fat (optional)
*In case you are expecting to include a sizable quantity or thicker items, I would splurge on the largest flamingo you can locate. I have discovered that these men hold about two pounds before getting top-heavy.
- Spray paint the flamingo body and let dry.
- Decorate your bud as you desire. If using trimming, I found it useful to set the pot upside down and start gluing in the bottom. Together with my particular cut I glued the top and underside of the bottom row.
For the top and middle rows I just glued the top of this trimming and let it drop down openly, overlapping the last row. Begin every row straight on the seam of the prior row. This is going to be the rear of the kettle.

- When flamingo has dried, attach the legs.
- Put the little styrofoam disk at the bottom of the kettle to anchor the flamingo “ft” and then the half ring styrofoam to anchor the thighs. You want the toes to be as wide apart as possible for maximum balance.
Stick the legs via both pieces of styrofoam. I coated it with a few of my daughter’s scarves — it is possible to utilize a boa or cloth cutting of selection. If you discover the flamingo for a little top heavy, glue a small magnet to the bottom plate.
