So being inspired by some Brian Froud stuff I decided to whip up a small fairy using a bunch of my scrap material I had lying around.

Her hair is made of unraveled yarn and her outfit is made of scrap lace and fabric. Her body is floral wire covered in felt while her face is a hand painted wooden bead. Her wings were such a pain! They were made using craft wire and tulle and I think I'm going to use a different technique next time. She is flexible and posable though. I made her necklace from a closure and some thin jewelry wire.




What do you think? Comments/Crits welcome!! Thanks for looking!

I think she's great.  You put a lot of work into all of those little details.  How big is she?

She's 5 1/4 inches tall without her hat and about 8 inches tall with her hat Smiley

Thanks! The whole time I was making her I imagined her saying sly and sassy things to other fairies, haha!
