Mini Fairies

I got inspired by a friend who was making something similar for her daughters. They reminded me of the Guatemalan Worry People (aka worry dolls) that were popular when I was a kid in the 80’s.  So, springboarding off of these 2 ideas I set out to make some mini fairies.

The parts are quite simple. Just pipe cleaners (silver ones for the wings), embroidery floss, and petals from artificial flowers.

I have to say that I first started on this project before Easter thinking that I could place them around the yard next to an electronic tea light and they could each have a little tiny jar of glitter aka “fairy dust”. Well, time got away from me and instead of having them ready for Spring I have just now finished all of the fairy bodies and many still need their flower clothes. Oy!
