The making of a Fairy Crown

I finally finished my daughter's fairy crown. She was quite happy with how it turned out, and that makes me happy!

It was very easy to make. I just used some floral/berry garland, some willow and floral sticks, several butterflies, brown floral tape, and glitter paint. I was able to find everything at Michael's craft store.

Today I will start working on the wings and altering the dress that we found for $3.00 at the thrift store. I can't see buying a pre-made costume when there is so much you can create on your own with just a little inspiration from others on the web. We have two weeks to go before the play and so far we are on track.

Craftbox Agency: fairy princess

 My oldest daughter got the part as a fairy in a play, so we are currently working on making a costume for her. Here is my inspiration for a crown: Craftbox Agency: fairy princess: hand-made fairy crown. I am so hoping that she will go along with it, thirteen-year-olds seem to have ideas of their own you know. As soon as I can get everything put together, I will post some pictures.
