Let's revisit the 1970 McCall's Annual, and take a stroll through its Forest Fantasy.
This scene combines a few of my favorite things: Bright, pop-py colors, pompoms, and mod, semi-abstract shapes. It also includes one of my craft nemeses, Styrofoam balls. Unfortunately, sometimes there's no good substitute for a foamed blob of polystyrene.
Note the spool and the golf tees being utilized here. Clever!
Here are the directions, if you want to make a Forest Fantasy for your very own dresser top. There's also some handy information on embarking on a thrilling career as a doll hospital operator.
Happy retro crafting! xo
