On the corner of Chive Ave and Daisy Lane, where the chives do not blossom, and the daisies do not dance, there’s an old street light that tells the tale of the wayward bunny witch. This story, and the projects that go with it, will be continued. In Part 1, I go over how to make a miniature lantern. and in part 2 I cover how to make the stand.
Put them together and you’ll have your own kinda creepy-weird, all-be-it working, miniature street light. Cons: you will have a kinda creepy-weird miniature street light. Pros: you will have a kinda creepy-weird miniature street light. Since the pro-con scale is about equal you might as well get going and make the thing. This is what you’ll need…
Have you always dreamed of someday learning miniature basket weaving? Do you often think (and sometimes mention out loud),
“I hope to be just like all the other miniature basket weavers I know, for they are strong of heart, and sound of mind”. Have you had sleepless nights because you don’t know the basics of how to make a basket for a doll? Well, it’s time to end all this needless envy and worry right now and learn this important life skill.
I laughed at that thought the other day as my fingers whirled around 2 inch cake paste wire with looping hemp cord (don’t ask me how cake paste wire is actually suppose to be used) and my mind was entirely engrossed in my strange miniature obsession. We mini makers are quite the unique bunch, aren’t we? 🙂
Just a list of supplies for the mini pumpkin soup scene. I usually annotate these lists with my experiences using the products, but I wanted to get this one out to you as fast as possible, so here you go! 🙂
I almost stepped on a fairy in the forest today. Shh… secret here… I actually sculpted her out of polymer clay, and it was great fun. I show you exactly how to sculpt the head of this fairy, and I’ve listed my tools here, so you can try it for yourself.
If you’ve ever found a dead cicada on a nature walk, and wondered what to do with it, I’ve got the answer for you. Make fairy wings of course! (I have a feeling you knew I was going to say that). But you don’t need a dead insect. For those who are squeamish, or if you just don’t have a dead cicada or dragonfly, use transparency print out of insect wings.
I’m going to quickly list each supply for you to copy and paste into Notepad, and then I’ll expound upon the wonders of each supply & link to each supply so you can get a good idea of what I’m talking about. Alternatively, you can print the entire post by clicking the printer icon below.
I haven’t tried buying plants online yet, but I thought I’d provide these sources because some of you might not have easy access to fairy garden plants. Before buying online, I’d suggest calling a few local garden centers first. You might be pleasantly surprised to find a local source for these lovely plants.
Of all the trees in the enchanted field, there was one that was more magical than most. Have you ever wanted to make a fairy door for a tree in the garden? This video tutorial explains how to make a fairy door with natural materials and polymer clay. Enjoy!
