Altered Dress Form - Zeus and Zoe


Hi!  I'm sharing a paper mache dress form that I altered with supplies from my Zeus and Zoe Kit. The mix of vintage charms, jewelry and lace that came in my kit is fabulous and I highlighted some of those special pieces on the front of my form.


One of my favorite pieces from my kit is this stitched butterfly.  Someone spent a lot of time creating this beauty! I love the intricate design and pop of color it adds to my piece.


Here is the back of my form. I separated the petals of a Manor House Creations flower and used them to make the wings. I used the fun flower center to top the bow that I tied with some pretty May Arts ribbon. Awhile back I won a Craft-Dee BowZ Tool from Craft-Dee BowZ. I used the tool to tie my bow here. You may not be able to tell from the photo, but it's a triple bow! I can't even begin to tell you how much of a help this tool is in tying perfect bows, the first time, with no waste!


I added the subtle shimmery color to my form with Lindy Stamp Gang Starburst Color Shots in Cape Cod Coral and Clam Bake Beige.
