Paper Sailboat

 Remember the bathtub I made for the Gypsy Trailer? I told you I knew what to do with it! It's a Dream Boat! I listed it in my shop.
This is what it looked like in the trailer. Well I decided to go with another tub. And I knew this one would become a sailboat.
The masts are two old paintbrushes. They are ones I used so much that there was hardly any bristles left! I always keep them because I love the worn look with all the paints . I painted the sail just like the outside of the Gypsy Trailer.
 This is the back.

A little paper clay cupcake at the top for sweet dreams! I just shaped this by hand. No molds here!

These are little fabric roses(see my rose tutorial) on crepe paper ruffles.

 I think it looks better as a sailboat then a bathtub.
