My girls are all about the fairies, so we have a very random collection of different fairies around the house, but when we wanted some for our fairy gardens in the allotment, I didn’t want to use any of the beautiful fairy statues in case they
go walkabout fly off in the middle of the night.
Fortunately the theme for April’s Bostik Bloggers was “wings” or “flying”, so a bag of fun coloured feathers seemed a perfect way to bring some fairies into our garden.
For this project, each fairy will require:
- A lollipop stick
- A mini cupcake case
- A pompop
- Two feathers
You can be as decorative with these garden fairies as you like, and could incorporate pipe cleaners for arms, but we didn’t find that necessary this time round.
To start, glue the feathers half way down the lollipop stick. Turn the stick around and add a dollop of glue where the head would go and pop a pompom in place.
Make a small cut in top of the cupcake case. Slide the lollipop stick through the case to two thirds down. (You can use a glue dot to fix it in place if it is too big or loose.)
Leave it all to dry, then find a spot in the garden!
Introduce your fairies to their new home, and enjoy how pretty it – and simple – it is.
