The Fairy Tree

Our party favors for our youngest guests....

Wool fairies from a magical tree...

The fairies are simple to create from wool roving (my tutorial here via Rhythm of the Home) and a short length of embroidery floss (since creating the tutorial, I have found that floss works better than thread!)

Our 6 and 7 year old playschool girls learned to create these fairies with such a small amount of help with securing the knots. I continue to be in awe of their abilities and confidence.

                              We're decorating together and looking forward to W's birthday celebration:)

Our favorite climbing tree at the Rose Garden down the block also became a Fairy Tree this week, with the help of a few sheets and lengths of fabric..


  1. Looks like so much fun! I love the fairy tree!

  2. Oh, how sweet! And Happy Birthday to your dear boy! :)

  3. Oh I hope that your knee feels better soon sweetie! Boy your Mum has made such pretty things for your special day! We look forward to seeing photos of the celebration!

  4. So lovely! And a very happy birthday to W!

  5. How enchanting! " awe of their abilities and confidence" - - I'm always looking for ways to return to the creative confidence of childhood!

  6. What joy and fun! Everything is looking so festive and you can see the excitement on the children's faces. Have a grand time and take care.

  7. Heavens, Rebecca I love your home. <3
    Oh preparing for a birthday! What a special thing, how lovely all the children get to help! Also, I am always floored by how utterly creative small children are when given the chance, and the right environment!


I love to hear from you! I read and appreciate all feedback.. Thanks for stopping by!
