DIY Crafting Video :: Fairy Babies

Oh my gosh… I’ve been having so much fun!

I stepped out of my comfort zone and into a place that I NEVER thought I’d venture into… YouTube.  Eeeek!

 

My 12 year old daughter encouraged me. ‘It’s all in YouTube these day’s Mom’, she said.

 

She critiqued my video and had a lot of suggestions of improvement but gave me the go-ahead to put it up.

 

So, here it is ::  The Magic Onions YouTube channel. Pop on over, have a look around and subscribe.

 

If you’d prefer to watch on here, I’ve added this video tutorial on how to make the sweetest fairy babies (you might have to put the volume up a little as I haven’t quite worked out how to set the right volume on the video yet)…

 

 

I’ve also recorded this same tutorial in photographs if that’s more your style. You can find it here.

Always Believe in Fairies

Do you believe in fairies?

I do.

To me, believing in fairies means more than just believing in little creatures with wings.

It means believing in magic and miracles.

It means opening your heart to the possibility that anything and everything is possible.

It means perceiving that there is so much we don’t yet know and will never understand… and that’s JUST FINE.

In fact, it’s more than fine because within this realization, lies life’s magic.

We aren’t meant to know and understand everything. We aren’t meant to know all the answers… or even half of them.

If you wait until you know all the answers, you will be waiting all your life.

Sometimes life is meant to be lived on a whim.

Sometimes we can act on instinct and make decisions on hope and optimism.

We can follow our dreams and let faith guide us.

We can open our heart to receive the Earth’s blessings and let her fill our actions with joy.

We can walk in the knowledge that love will guide us to the right place.

 

Always believe in Fairies

Believing in fairies can set us free from the limiting constraint that seeing is believing.

It can allow us to cast off the unrealistic notion that we have to know the answer before we take action.

It can open us to a world magical world possibilities.

Do you believe in fairies?

Blessings and magic,

Donni

Make BEAUTIFUL Felt Flowers

There are so many beautiful ways to craft with felt.

Felt brings such an earthy rich texture into your home. I recommend crafting with the the best quality felt, always. There is such a huge difference with using the best felt. You are spending time and effort in your crafting and using the best possible materials will make your crafting experience that much more enjoyable.  Plus, the results of your crafting efforts will be all the more beautiful when you use better mateirals.

I get my felt from the most delightful shop called A Child’s Dream. They have a huge selection of the prettiest colors. Choose the naturally dyed wool felt if you want to use extra special felt in your projects. It’s simply gorgeous to work with.

Kitty and I have just made such lovely felt blossoms that we glued onto a few twigs and have put in a vase on the mantel.

Best of all, you won’t believe how simple these felt flowers are to make and I’m sharing the quick and easy tutorials with you today.

TUTORIAL : FELT BLOSSOMS

 

1.  Use scissors to cut the felt into a scalloped spiral about 6 inches in diameter. My favorite felt-cutting scissors are small and sharp and I turn the felt as I cut instead of the scissors.

2.  Roll the scalloped spiral of felt into a flower.  Start with the outside of the spiral. Roll it up on itself, keeping the petals even on top.

3.  You can let the center (bottom) of the flower span outward a little. And even pull the petals a little to widen your flower into an open shape.

4.  When you come to the round center of the spiral at the end, put a little glue onto the underside of the felt and stick it over the bottom to hide the messy rolled up felt.

5. Choose pretty twigs from the garden and glue the felt flowers onto the twigs.

Put your pretty felt blossoms into a vase in a pretty place in your home to brighten your days.

I love the soft and gentle colors that Kitty chose with the brighter POP colors of the mustard and the bright pink. I would never have grouped these colors together but they are utterly perfect and I’m glad I trusted her intuition.
