A Fairy Party: Favors and Fairy Threads

And we’re back to the fairy party again…

Now we’re talking about little fairy costumes I made that became the favors (which I like a whole bunch more than little bags of candy or party junk that just ends up in my toddler’s mouth).

First off we had fairy wands! So easy and cheap…

I got the idea from here at the Nurture Store, and then just made it up from there.  I found driftwood (from the East China Sea again…I never get tired of saying that!) and bought copper wire for $2 at a hardware store.  I had some beads left over from years past and just wound the wire around the stick and added beads wherever I fancied. Then I wrapped the bottom in yarn and wa-la! Magic fairy wand to play with at the party and take home!

I also made fairy crowns for each little fairy.

I got the idea from looking all over Pinterest and then went to the Yen shop (Japan’s version of a Dollar Store only with MUCH better stuff) and bought fake flowers and green twist ties.

I had some pipe cleaners to form a crown and then just twist tied the flowers to it in various patterns.

My mom sent me a bunch of tulle last month, so I used that for wrapping around the whole mess and then for a flowing train in the back.  The whole process took me about 2 movies worth of time…that’s how I measure projects these days: by late night movies 🙂

Tulle tie skirts are all the rage these days.  And why not?  They are so amazingly easy!  Seriously, 15 minutes and you’re done! I only had enough tulle for little E and myself (because hey…I wanted to have one too.  Don’t look at me like that, you know you want one as well).  So here we are!

And finally, we had two little boys at this fairy party.  E’s best friend and her little brother.  So, I decided on pirate hats and that’s ALL I did for them because by this point, I had run out of creation steam!!

Got my pirate hat tutorial here at Simple Simon and Company and tweaked it a bit. But, man, did they turn out cute?! Or maybe that’s just the little pirate who’s wearing it…cutie!!

And here are just some lovely shots of my beautiful Little E from our fairy photo shoot!!  I couldn’t resist.  She’s just so photogenic! Especially in this shot:

Lovely!

OK, so the NEXT Fairy Party post will be about little E’s present – her Fairy Village! Tune in again soon!

  1. This is so cute and whimsical! I love it! My friend has a business called “Fairy Tales and Dragon Scales” – She dresses up like Rapunzel and brings her reptile, Pascal. You should look her up on Facebook! 🙂

  2. I know I already commented on this… but could we plan a date day where we make a bunch of flower crowns? I really want to do a photoshoot with some and I feel like I don’t what to pick…
