My daughter loves to collect nature treasures. It doesn’t matter what we are doing she will most likely collect something and ask to bring it home. In fact we have a jar by our front door so that she can put her new treasures there when she comes in. Sometimes we use them and other times they get put back in nature. I like the idea of using these objects she collects to make something new. For our latest project we made a fairy together that she named Moana. Follow along to see how we made Moana!
- acorn top
- magnolia seed pod
- wood bead for head
- hot glue
- craft glue
Step 1: Use craft glue to attach glitter to acorn top. This is will be the fairy’s hair.
Step 2: Attach wooden bead to acorn top with hot glue. Please note that any glue will work, we just chose hot glue for the quick drying time.
Step 3: Use hot glue to attach shells to magnolia seed pod.
Step 4: The top stem of the magnolia seed pod was pretty long so we cut part of that stem off with scissors. Next hot glue the wood bead head to the stem of the magnolia seed.
Step 5: Attach a flower on the hair for decoration.
Step 6: Draw a face on the fairy and remove any extra glue around the base of the head.
Step 7: Use wire or string to hang your new fairy!
For some more inspiration we have included Moana with a couple angels we made at Christmas using driftwood. We hope you feel inspired to create something today!
