One of our friends came over with pinecones in her pocket…
thinking they would inspire a little "something or other"…and they did!
Pinecone love fairies…just in time for Valentines Day!
To make your own you will need:
pinecones, any size will do
paint and paint brush
wool felt in red & pink
glue gun and glue
To start, paint some faces on your wooden beads.
Someone suggested to me to use a toothpick for doing the little eyes and mouths…
it actually works!
Let them dry.
While your faces are drying, cut out some little heart shaped wings…
cut out small red hearts first, then glue them onto your pink felt
and cut around them…
size your hearts according to your pinecone…
bigger pinecone=bigger heart "wings"
Now using your glue gun, glue the wings onto the back of your pinecone.
Thread a piece of yarn through your wooden bead "head" and glue into place.
Glue this onto the top of your pinecone.
Embellish to your hearts delight…we added a little pink crown and a heart on her belly!
After all she IS a little LOVE fairy!
I always like to add a bit of pink on the cheeks as well…I use a beeswax crayon for this.
And here's the end result…
a sweet little LOVE fairy who is sure to spread LOVE where ever she may be!
Happy Love day Crafting!!!!
