Little Garden Fairy

A few weeks ago, I started seeing a certain little fairy in our garden. She comes out every few days to help me water and to make sure everything is growing as it should. She loves her fairy wings.

These were actually pretty easy to make. All you need are two metal hangers (they actually still sell these at walmart), two packages of girls tights (I used the largest size in girls to make sure I would have enough), yarn or twine to wrap around the wings, 3 yards of ribbon, glitter, and good ol' elmer's glue. You also need to watch this video that will guide you through everything you need to do. These wings were so much fun to make. I formed the hangers and put the wings together and Blake helped me to the glitter (outside of course...she did go a little glitter crazy).

I hope to see this little fairy in my garden all summer long!
