Fairy nice job

Postby Dalboy » 11 Oct 2020, 21:19

Orders from the other half when she saw these mushroom fairy houses by Emma aka the tiny turner. Got them finished and have new boxes to pack them in. Yes you guessed it they are Christmas presents(Dam it did I just mention that time of year)

Yes they were fun. Bases from Oak ant the tops and fairies from whatever odd bits I found around the wood pile which are to small for many things that I turn, I even robbed some of the pen blanks out of my pen blank draw.

Do they have LED lights in them?

Thank you all.

As Andy stated the kit is from The Tiny Turner. Which include nearly everything you need you will need to turn the base the top and the fairy. Have a look at the video she did on making one.

They stand about 6 1/2" tall

Lovely stuff as always Derek.

I really like those and the kits lol great. Something I might buy to do with my daughter as she’s developing a real love for crafts and would love those, especially if she had a hand in making them too.
