Creative Torso

What do you get for the person that doesn't need anything but you want to get her something because she is very special? She is always there for you and helping out with whatever you need.

A torso of course!! This is for my great friend Mary. She did love it when I gave it to her this week.
I found this idea on a blog and at the moment I can't remember which one to give them credit. But the lady did a great job decorating hers and gave the source for these torsos. Stand is separate and they are hollow and do not have a back. But they are fun to decorate and the ideas are endless of what you can do with them. Company is called  Barr Design . They are not expensive and so unusual as a gift.

I used some jewelry pieces from Michaels from Art-i-Cake to decorate the neckline. The whole thing is covered in dictionary paper. I circled some words that reminded me of Mary.

The bottom has crepe paper ruffle, tulle fringe, lace and rhinestone chain on it.
