Wax Paper Backdrop

With Relish Wax Cover

I spotted these cute ones shaped like little proteas at my mother-in-law-to-be’s house and I decided I could totally make them myself, and add in some sparkly speckles, of course! So Claire and I spent the morning getting our hands dirty while our other halves got their hands dirty on the golf course.
