Woodland Fall Sprites in the Making

This little Fall Sprite is in the making. I am not sure if I have been in the garden too long or my imagination is getting the best of me but, I have this urge lately to make woodland creatures and their woodland homes. I started this little guy this morning and I am sure that it will end up on Etsy- my outlet for all the things that I dream up in my head.

The wings are pine cone "petals" that I plucked from a rather large pine cone. I will soon paint them and make them oh so pretty.

Her "crown" is made from an acorn top and is adorned with chamomile flowers and glitter.

Her "bottom" is created from a tip of a bottle brush. She soon will resemble a moth.

I need to make her arms out of clay or something. I haven't decided yet.

Fun Little Creations Inspired by Nature

I found this shell tea set from the sixties at the thrift store and was inspired to make these pin cushions with faux and real moss, batting, and woodland shell straight pins. I love the way they turned out. The tea pot is my favorite! The shell straight pins turned out better than I had hoped. The "match book" holders are made out of felt made from recycled plastic and paper.
