Fairy Dancing Queen
Time: 10 minutes maximum
Difficulty: Easy Peasy
And so we begin!
A whole month of nature crafts.
Fun! I hope you’ll come and see what I’m up to, and hopefully you’ll join in too.
I would love to make a gallery of some of your creations so please take a pic when you have a go at something, and send it to me. firstname.lastname@example.org
I hope to do this each week, so long as I have some pictures to share...so please start sending your pics! Please don’t be shy.
My first project was a wee one, but cute nevertheless.
1. All I did was take this purple flower from my friend Ronnie’s garden and turn it upside down. You could use any flower you like, in your favourite colour, so long as it will sit nicely and balance, and has a stem to attach ‘arms’ and ‘head’ to.
2. I took a fine piece of stick and positioned it across the stem of the flower.
3. I then tied it to the stem using pink baker’s twine. (Oh, I love baker’s twine.) I trimmed the ends of the twine too.
4. Then I added a baby gumnut with a little bit of beeswax inside the gumnut to hold it and stick it in place.
Sweet, isn’t she? You could make 12 Dancing Queens (or Princesses) in all different colours, shapes and sizes. Now wouldn’t that be something!
