Well, it's not quite "extreme" but it is a toy makeover...
(side note: I wonder how many of my posts I start with "well" or "so"? I bet a lot. I feel like I need to write as if we're already in the middle of a conversation. Not sure if that's weird or not, but it feels natural so I'l go with it.)
I bought this admittedly cheesy toy castle for a whopping $1.41 at thrift shop. I saw much potential.
Really I know how short lived the love of certain toys can be and Aurora has been wanting some of the little My Little Ponies, so I figured this would make a cute home. I could revamp it a bit and since I didn't add another big heap of plastic to the world, not feel bad when she's over it in 6 months.
I used ribbon, scrapbook paper, mod podge, and some fancy felt stickers. I wasn't going for longevity and it's already lost a few sparkles, but I don't mind at all...
