I’ve been hunting for a wooden spool forever ! I paid 20.00 for 2. Here’s what I did with it.
My Fairies have gone camping. Who says Fairies don’t play corn hole ? I made a little campfire with a tealight candle and glued some wood together. I created marshmallows out of old pencil erasers. I painted them with glow in the dark paint. They are so cute ! The skewers are made from paper clips. The corn hole boards were scrap wood that I painted & I made the bean bags out of tape.The birds nest is an acorn. The lampost is a dowel rod and a white knob that I painted with glow in the dark paint. It lights up pretty well, but impossible to get a decent picture ! I had these little porcelain round thingys I painted red & did white polka dots and glued a little base on for the table. The stools are little wooden knobs I painted. Perfect table for fairies. The clothes line is just wire and plant markers. The Tutu’s are ribbon. I really like the tiny clothes pins. I made a grill from an idea I seen on pinterest from Dollarstorecrafts from a plastic gumball machine. I planted a miniature hosta for now.
The pictures don’t do her justice ! It is so pretty at night with the lights flickering. I used moss in the bottom of the jar and painted the inside of it with glitter. It just sparkles. It’s impossible to get a good photo of it at night. Not to mention I am a terrible photographer. I used transfer on stickers on the bottom of the jar. The lights are fairy lights from hobby lobby. I didn’t want the ugly wire to show so I wrapped it in silver & gold ribbon. I feel guilty looking at her in the jar I want to set her free !
Fairy Circus Garden I only bought one thing for this whole project. I paid 7.00 for the Ferris Wheel on ebay. Everything else I already had or made. I couldn’t believe the train track I had fit perfectly. I used red tape to make the stripes on the container. My fairy Doll is made from little spools. I already had it but , I added a flower petal skirt and wings and clown nose of course.
My swing ride that I made. I wanted something that would actually spin. I used a cd holder and painted it and used the plastic clear cd as the top I covered the top in paper and modge podge with beads. . It spins !! The little swings flip out like a real ride. I was so proud. I made the little swings from foam. It took some tinkering. I added the gold knob on top to make it easier to spin.
