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..
