This is what I call a cheap and cheerful craft.
Everything you need may be laying about..
it takes about 5 minutes to make these cuties
and 5 bucks will probably make you 20 of them...
which would look so cute in a flock...
What you need:
white pom poms in 2 or 3 sizes
black seed beads
the tiniest amount of orange fimo or sculpey
thread and beading needle
First make the tiniest carrots you can imagine, out of your polymer clay of choice. Bake according to directions, but maybe for less time, because these are TINY..
Next, sew the 3 pom poms together.. trim if you need to to get the shape right... but don't cut off the thread.
Then stich back through the poms and come out where you would like an eye. Thread on a bead and stitch in place.
Now push the needle out where you would like a button.. add on bead.. then back up for a second eye.. back down for a second button.. When all your beads are applied stich through the whole snowman a couple of times to secure. If you are hanging your fairy, come out of the back of the middle pom pom and leave the thread long.
Glue your arms in place with a bit of white glue. Mine are a piece of broom straw. It is hard to find a real stick small enough, they tend to look like logs.) Apply to the stick, not the pom pom itself, to keep it from getting stiff. Do the same with the carrot nose: dip in glue, glue on face.
Next, make the wings by trimming a feather to about 1 inch long...
Pull off any excess fuzzy..
and glue in place behind the sticks..
Have fun. Leave a link on comments if you make any.. I would love to see.
