Following from my first lolly stick ballerina, this is my second attempt, turning the ballerina into a fairy.
I think I may have gone a little over the top with her embellishment, but I doubt if a certain little madam will notice!I have used three pink cake cases for her skirt, and added an self adhesive strip of iridescent gems for the extra bling factor.
I made a small slit using a craft knife in the centre of the cake cases to put the fairy’s body through.
I wrapped wool round the top for hair, wool and also used it to wooden beads onto for arms and hands, plus a feather butterfly for her wings, (Home Bargains – 6 assorted colours for 99p, and excellent quality), with added gems to match her dress.
When the butterfly was glued onto the back of the stick it hid and safely secured the arms. If I was being really anal, it wouldn’t take much to hid the slightly ugly centre of the butterfly with a scrap of matching paper etc.
