I'd been wanting to make one of those dollar store, mini skeleton dead fairies ever since I found some dismembered fairy wings in the Goodwill bins a few years ago.  Either I lost those wings or they were packed in the wrong box when we moved and I haven't found them.  Shoot.  Well, I went to the dollar store last November looking for a mini skeleton anyway and instead found one that is 2-3 times the size I was planning on.  I bought it anyway and just recently, finally made my version:

A mummified fairy, trapped in the cage in which it had been held captive by some nefarious being.  That old classic.  Tongue



I took oodles of in-progress shots and wrote a detailed tutorial on my blog.  There are also many more finished project shots including more close-ups and the details on how I only spent $1 to make this!

There's a house upon the hilltop
We will not go inside
For that is where the witches live,
Where ghosts and goblins hide.
