Once in place and dry i painted it all black.
The bust was then covered in wild orchid flowers and leaves for decoration. I just adore this flower range and have so many of them in my collection.
The finished item can be used as an ornament to add decoration to your dressing table in your bedroom or any room depending on the colour scheme used.
This one is a fairy door.
A very simple project as i bought a fairy door blank from ebay (3" tall) and i painted it two colours of brown then gave the wood a grainy effect. Next i added some liquid lead liner for the small window and then made a little hole in it to place in its door handle. To decorate i added a ladybug, butterfly and little gold stars.
A fairy door can be put against your skirting boards in your home so that fairies can move freely from room to room in your home without being detected ! Ihave these in my house and in my garden.
Now for my last project. I bet you are wondering what on earth this ball with feathers is ???
Well its a fairy nest.
A fairy nest is a little home for the fairies that live in your home. It can be hung somewhere so the light will shine on the glitter as fairies are attracted to the glitter, feathers and beads and you will soon find that one will be living in your nest. I have several of these hanging up in my house and sold heaps at fayres as they are so novel.
This is how i made it.
Its a rafia ball that i had in a bag of pot pourri and ribbons, feathers, beads and 2 little chipboard creatures.
I sprayed the ball in silver glitter spray then attached ribbons to the top for hanging it up and tied it off in a bow.
I then attached lots of ribbons to the bottom and threaded on assorted beads.
The feathers are then poked up inside the beads and a little glue added to hold them in place.
I then added the little chipboard butterfly, glittered, to the ball and a glittered dragonfly to the feathers.
