Free Craft Projects
Our little fairy gets to fly anywhere you hang her up.
Just attach a silver thread to her center ice crystal headdress and let her fly!
Crafters have been enlarging our drawings and coloring them and then printing them on Shrinky Dink.
This product is available at craft stores. Colored pencils work fine on it. The shrinking process requires an oven or toaster oven or hair dryer and should be done with adult supervision.
Fairy Door When I first saw a fairy door I had to make one out of Sculpy, although the fairies have already found many ways into our house, drawers, closets, art supplies, food and oh my, what else? If you want to make a Sculpy door or one of wood, use the drawing as a template or inspiration. Just follow the directions to use the paper door.
As I say, 'the fairies will know how to use it'.
I was thinking and dreaming about putting a tiny tree and some little fairy treats by the door, what do you think?
Christmas Box The gift box theme this year is Partridge in a Pear Tree. Sorry I couldn't get the whole song on it. Maybe you could put a little accordion pleated strip inside with the song.
Along with our three new Holiday Drawings we've enlarged three of the 'Partridge' drawings for you to color.
Elf Stocking The Gift Stocking is not strong enough for a lot of goodies but one candy cane and a gift card will give good cheer.
It would also make a fun decoration.
Elf Puppet I have several of these little elves with the fern and feather wings in my house.
They are made of felt with tiny sweet faces and crystal eyes. They pop up just about – everywhere – and make me smile. It is funny though, most visitors to our home do not 'see' them, and we wonder why more people can't see fairies! Hmmmm?
Have fun making this one.
Kim You will find two original lovely sketches for Fairy Puppets by Kim in our contributor pages. Kim is working hard to become a very good artist and we thank her for sharing her artwork with us.
Hannah Hannah has also contributed her beautiful coloring of Melody with some of her own design around it. Very Nice!
The Hole in the Sock Gang Lady Rose sent us a picture of The Hole in the Sock Gang, McGregor Iowa, actors who street perform in her town.
They also give parties for the kids and recently used some of Phee's craft projects for their Halloween Party. Thanks for letting us know Lady Rose.
Marilyn sent this version of our Gingerbread man that her Girl Guides group made for Christmas.
Marilyn enlarged the pattern and printed it on brown wrapping parcel paper.
The girls colored the features with colored pencils and cut them out.
Then they glued one side and used gently pulled apart cotton balls to fill the
center, leaving a border to glue together. A hanging ribbon was attached with
a little more glue added and then the two pieces were glued together.
It makes a great project and easy for kids to do.
Thanks Marilyn, for sharing this.
Many thanks to all of you for being a part of our creative lives. We hope that during this season, inspiration soars through your fairy door and makes your toes twinkle and the corners of your mouth twitch up in delightful and secret smiles. There is hidden beauty in everything … just look for it.
