Re-purposing a Small Mannequin

Late last summer my daughter, Mariah and I were working on paper mache mannequins that we got from Creative Imaginations. I had a few that we painted and played with but did not finish and decided one of these would be great to re-purpose for my May Arts tutorial. This entire project took less than an hour and we re-purposed a used mannequin and created a whole new decor item.
