Lily Fairy 2016

By Starr Durrant

I started creating flower fairies last year for my daughter’s lily pots and they are always so much fun to make! I love the idea of up-cycling silk flowers and little dolls I rescue from the thrift shops. Each celebration dinner, I create a unique fairy using a flower that represents the season and this Easter I used the Starburst Lily.

There are no rules here – just deconstruct the flowers and play around until you come up with something you like.

Fairy Supplies

With this fairy – I removed her head and clipped off the base of one lily – I placed it upside down over her neck, added a smaller white daisy for a collar and then replaced her head. Using the glue gun, I added some wings and glitter and little silk flower for a hat.

Simple and Elegant Fall Arrangement

By Starr Durrant

Well it’s that time of year again and fall leaves abound so here’s an example of an easy fall arrangements that brings autumn beauty indoors. Fill a vase or glass container with some leaves then add a few twigs and you have yourself an elegant addition to your fall home decor!

Gather up the kids and go for walk on a treasure hunt collecting up your favorite fall leaves and branches or… take a time out and  just go for a relaxing walk on your own or with a friend.

You can use red, yellow, red or brown leaves or a combination of them all. If you want to add more texture and color, consider adding a few crab apples or berries if that’s your preference. I went with an earthy monotone that highlights the branches and love the simplicity but you can make it your  own.

I encourage you to head outdoors and see what you can find, then bring some of those beautiful fall elements inside and get creative. This is a great activity for kids to do as well.
