Christmas Fairies

Each year, I design a new Christmas ornament for our tree, and make a few to share with friends and family. This year, I also swapped with the very talented Audrey Pettit.

Here is my ornament:

I made the mushroom from paperclay, and then painted and glittered it once it dried.

I made the two little fairies using vintage images from my stash.

I attached the mushroom to an ornament clip base (the kind used to put candles on your tree). I gave the little fairy at the base her own little garden to tend.

And here is the ornament that Audrey made for me:

Isn’t he adorable? Audrey sews the most wonderful holiday projects, and makes all kinds of beautiful paper crafts. I was so lucky that she agreed to swap with me! I hope we’ll do it again soon.

    My mind is literally blown by your intricate, gorgeous ornament, Erica! I felt like I was holding my breath when I first unwrapped it, just staring and staring to try to absorb all the tiny amazing details! It is absolutely magical. There is no other word for it. And it’s got the star position on my tree right now! Thank you, thank you!
