The Fairies Series
Making a deck & painting a ladybug

The fairies series continues and this week we are making a deck and small decorations for our fairyhouse.

We started by making the deck with simple materials like bamboo skewers and a kitchen roll.

You will need:

Acrylic Paint
Kitchen Roll
Small Paint Brush
Bamboo Skewers
Plastic film
Glue Gun
Acrylic Coating
Wiggle Eyes

Here's how we started. We took a kitchen roll and cut it in half and then we started to glue our bamboo skewers on top of them.

This is how the deck looked completed. 

However after I finished this I realised that our fairy house is placed outdoors in our garden so in order to waterproof this I glued some plastic film on the paper side of our deck.

To make our cute ladybug 

We took a stone and draw a line with a marker.

Then painted a line and a few black dots and our ladybug was almost ready. We glued the eyes and then we finished with some acrylic coating to seal the color.

The rest of the stones were decorated with the simple technique of color dots!!

Here's our beautiful deck and ladybug for our fairy house. Made with love and magic.
