Lavender Field Fairies
Fairies are a fluttering among the lavender fields, what inspiration those beautiful fragrant flowers are and the fairies are gathering them to keep the bad spirits away. Create these fairies from popsicle sticks and a little fairy dust! Have you guys visited a local lavender farm? I have here in New York, it was beautiful and so inspirational. I thought what a great, relaxing place for fairies to live, thus my lavender field fairies were born! They're made with various size craft sticks and a whole sachet of fairy dust!
I teamed up with Aleene's glue to bring you this fun craft to do with the kiddies. See my full tutorial for making these beauties here at Aleene's Glue! Visit Aleenes.com and learn about the best glue ever! Plus check out their awesome craft ideas and tutorials!
You'll need a few everyday art and craft materials to make these but remember to be creative and put your own twist on making a unique fairy. What's really cool about these are the the tulle treat bags for the dresses they're the kind you get at a wedding with those candied almonds in 'em haha do people still do that? Anyway, you just slice the bottom of the bag and voilà, just slide them on and use the string to tie them in place! See just how I did it in my video tutorial at Aleenes.com!
And remember to do fun things with the yarn hair, like in the video and middle photo of the gallery below!
