4 Post Fairy Bed

Create a lovely fairy bed for use as a decoration or imaginative play.
The inspiration for this piece was a posting over at The Magic Onions. http://themagiconions.blogspot.com/2009/09/how-to-make-fairys-bed.html
Items used:
  • Popsicle or craft sticks
  • Silk flowers and leaves
  • Sea shells
  • Fabric paint or glitter glue
  • Hot glue gun and glue
  • Craft scissors
  • Clear acrylic spray (optional)

To make the bed, use the craft scissors to cut one of the sticks in half. Glue down 6 sticks to each piece of the cut half.

Glue down the the flower and leaves to the top fo the bed.

Glue a shell to each corner of the bed on the bottom.

To make the posts, use two sticks and glue a small conical shell about 1/2 inch from each edge so the open side is up. Put a stick in each shell and glue the stick to shell.

Glue a conical shell to the top of each post then decorate with fabric paint or glitter glue.
Glue the posts to the bottom of the bed. Spray with clear acrylic paint for protection from elements if using for an outside decoration.
