Fairy Christmas Tree~

Our local fair is starting next week on October the 7th. I was choosen to decorate a Christmas tree to show at the fair. Wonderful huh? I got notified this past Monday... that I have to decorate it on Saturday~ *gasp* I had plans of doing this all along, but because I hadn't heard from them for so long, I thought I wouldn't get to do it. It was (and still is) my intention to decorate the tree with all the fairy ornaments I've been making that I'm going to be selling in November. Always a method to my madness~
Here are some blocks that I've painted white and distressed and added some sitting fairies.I glued flowers and fairies to these woven pine cones...These vintage Christmas ornaments were revamped with glued on bits and pieces and tiny fairies....Bazillions of snowflakes... These vintage birds all got glittered party hats~I added vintage book pages to these painted and distressed frames for more filler for the Christmas tree.
These 3 glittered teardrop shaped ornaments~
I also bought a $5 dollar vintage ruffly skirt that I'm going to use as the trees "skirt".... all this along with all the other things with fairies on them is getting stuck on that tree :-) then its up for sale~

I think your decorations you did are just great. Be sure to take a finished picture of the Tree and post it, looking forward to seeing all these great Fairies on the Tree.

Hi Cheryl,

Thanks for stopping by my blog (http://www.imagimeris.blogspot.com) and commenting. You don't have an email contact, so I'm answering you here on your blog.

You asked me what kind of clay I use....it's Paperclay, which can be found at most any craft or art store. It's an awesome medium and can be used in so many different ways. I hope you pick some up and start playing with it.

Hugs,
Meri

Wow! I love all of your ornaments! Sounds like you have been really busy! The fairies are just the cutest, and I especially love the cute little birdies with the hats! And the frames with the book pages are so neat,too! I just may have to borrow some of your ideas!
