I got a call from my niece this morning.
Her little three year old decided it was time
for the fairies to come and collect her dummy and...
could I please make a Fairy ?!
I had to make her in a few hours.
Drying time included.
Pinterest came to my rescue!
I started off with bendable wire and some paper napkins.
I peeled off the back of the napkins and tore it in to strips.
I then used gel medium and a paint brush to
'mummify' the wire shape.
You really put the strips on like bandages.
Now I have skipped a few steps, but this is the final
product, with a little crown, two layers of
petticoats and a top layer of the original paper napkin.
For the story to hold water with a three year old....
the baby fairies now needs the dummy and
that's why it will never come back.
