Last night at my arty ladies get together, I came along with a bin filled of my jars of natures treasures, twigs, vines, nuts, flower cones and a hot glue gun.
We spent the night making fairy furniture and accessories, something that is so satisfying and interesting to do and all made from the little bits of nature that we never usually give a second glance.
Here is what we made
A' poppy chair' fit for a king
'love seat' I made the flower shape by using a paper punch on a thin piece of bark
assorted tea cups, champange flutes and wines goblets
these wine goblets are made from field poppy heads, cut the top off, empty the inside and glue top to the bottom for a base
'wreaths' for dancing at fairy festivals
where maybe you would win the first prize 'trophy' for best flying!
a 'basinette' for a fairy baby
lined with wonderful smelling rose petals
and a dreamy headboard made from feathers from Fantails and Peacocks
we even made a little baby
all very tiny and cute
and awaiting homes
Im waiting on an email from post shop who will tell me if these can be posted overseas, I know they cannot be sent to New Zealand because of our customs rules. So once in my shop there may be restrictions on who can have them. But why not go for a walk today in your yard or park and see what you can find, its not time consuming at all, just very satisfying and fun.
Give it the try, the fairies will love you for it.
you can see my original fairy furniture here.
Hope your day is fine and dandy
