I’m busy planning a Flower Fairy Party and crafting my little heart out at night. Every time I create a new DIY Party Plan, I like to share at least one of my tutorials with you, so here’s your freebie from our Flower Fairy Plan: how to make fairy dust necklaces.
- Glass vials with cork and metal loop (Bottles ‘N Things)
- Nylon craft cording
- E6000 glue (WalMart)
1 – Cut the nylon cord long enough to be a necklace and slip easily over your child’s head. For me, that was a 29″ length.
2 – Melt the ends of the cord to seal them and prevent fraying.
3 – Mix your fairy dust: 2 parts sugar to 1 part glitter. (Don’t let your children help with this project so they can believe the fairy dust is real!)
4 – Pour the fairy dust into the vials and push in corks tight.
5 – Put a dot of glue on the center of the cork.
6 – Push the loop slightly into the cork and then twist it the rest of the way in. Try to keep this centered and straight.
7 – Thread the cord through the loop.
8 – Tie off the cord.
And here are your finished fairy dust necklaces.
This is so awesome! Thanks for sharing. Aurora is talking about a fairy birthday party next year. My friends think I am crazy for starting to plan 9 months ahead.
Hey Donna – You’re not crazy! My two have already said they want a surf girl party next February and you better believe I’ll be hitting the summer sales! Our fairy party is May 20 and I hope to have the $19 party plan ready a few weeks after that. You keep planning ahead – doing a little at a time makes the whole undertaking easy!
$19 party plan?! Wow….are you going to share? I like planning ahead. I just wish my catering customers at work would plan ahead.
Big Duh, I guess I haven’t explored your website enough. Great idea to offer a plan for $19.
These are adorable! These would make any party more magical! : )
