These Shabby Chic baubles are definitely French Cottage. I pinned this set for my younger girl who happens to adore anything remotely French or Austrian that was produced during the Victorian Era. I wrapped my Styrofoam balls with white glue and variegated, pastel colored yarns. Then I snipped and clipped my way through several vintage shawls, table cloths and dollies yellow and stained with age and wear. Most of these items came to me via an elderly aunt who hadn't the heart to throw them away. I think Hannah will be quite pleased with the end result.
