What fun it was to create this oceanic fairy world!
One night after getting home from a busy night at work ~ I sat down with a oodles of shells, a glass of wine, a fabulous sister on the line and proceeded to create the shell fairy family...a very therapeutic way to unwind.
For this creation supplies were simple...
seaside treasures collected over the years
a selection of shells (from any dollar store)
small wooden rounds (ditto)
a glue gun
moss (reminded me a lot of coral)
and what ever else feeds your underwater, fairy imagination!
After the shell family was created I decided they needed a home. Soooo...I cut the main body off a box and lined it with wax paper.
I filled it with river sand and rocks from my Mother's beach, snails and shells.
Then ocean fairy king and queen could move on in!
along with their water world children...
~ a world full of magic ~
~ mushrooms and mythical creatures ~
~ mini mice ~
and soaring delights!
The real beauty in this craft is in the versatile way you can let your imagination run wild! Shortly after l gifted this ~ mama created ~ fairy realm to my girls, my daughter proudly came to show me her shell inspired turtle, baby shell fairy and shared enthusiastically about her vision for her shell lion tomorrow ~ perhaps I shall add on updated photos of the creatures as they come to life!
