Fairy Doors on Etsy

Fairy doors on Etsy

Source for all photos can be HERE.

While strolling through our wooded yard, I catch movement out of the corner of my eye. My head tells me a chipmunk scurried past, but my heart whispers "fairy". In the distance I can hear a high pitched tinkle. My head tells me a neighbor's wind chime is blowing in a gentle breeze, but my heart hears a fairy's giggle. I smell earth and moss and flowers. My head tells me I'm in my yard, but my heart tells me I'm in a magical world.

Today I'm sharing an assortment of Fairy Doors found on Etsy. Oh, the goings on that must occur behind each of these doors and the stories they conjure!

The next time you are in your yard, I hope your heart whispers "fairy"!

Sock Bunnies

The last project I needed to finish up, for the updated Spring Bs homeschool unit, were these super easy to make sock bunnies. I completed them two different ways for different age/skill levels.

The tall blue bunny was completed without any sewing, whereas the smaller polk-a-dot bunny does require a needle and thread. No matter which style you complete, they both turned out adorable for an easy to make spring craft.

 

Materials

  • Clean Sock (mid-calf to knee high length)
  • Batting
  • Rubber Bands for no-sew bunny OR
  • Needle and matching thread for sewn bunny
  • Felt scraps, buttons, or beads for face
  • Craft glue for no sew bunny
  • Optional: Pom-pom for tail
  • Scissors

 


No-Sew Sock Bunny

I will walk you through the steps to a make a no-sew sock bunny first. Start with a clean sock (great way to re-use mismatched socks). For this bunny I used an adult sized knee sock.

Stuff the batting until just below the heel.

Use a rubber band (preferably in a matching color) to tie of the end of the sock. 

Stuff the...Read more

Ball of Yarn Coloring Page

 

I have a confession to make... I love balls of yarn. I know yarn is often wound in skeins so you can stick your finger in the center and pull out an end, making the process of pulling the yarn easy and it stops yarn from rolling around your floor. Also, you can buy hanks of yarn that you must wind yourself and many people use ball-winders which creates a cylinder shape with a flat top and bottom. This also has a center pull.

I'm old fashioned, I suppose, but I love to simply roll the yarn into a ball and I get a certain amount of satisfaction watching it scoot across the floor when I give a big pull. I don't have cats but my dogs have been known to pick up a ball and take off running. Someone might find that annoying... I find it amusing. I've also been eyeing beautiful pottery bowls meant to contain rogue balls of yarn. And I love, love, love the feel of winding yarn. Although I often stick my hank of yarn on a willing subject's hands, I've been know to plop the yarn on...Read more
