After Halloween

"You should put them on your Christmas tree." was the recommendation from my friend Dawn.

Hum, I like that idea, I think I will :)

Here are the skeleton faeries that hung over the snack table on the patio for the party. They are too cool, I could not take them fact if they don't make it on the tree, they are going to be permanent fixtures on the patio. I think they go nicely with the skull candle holders :D

See, I had this idea to make skeleton faeries and next thing I know, my friends Dawn and Elyssa made them for me. They are those cheap skeletons on a string from the Dollar Tree with wings made of transparency film colored with glitter.

The logic on why the wings are dull but still colorful and sparkly on dead faeries is because that is where all the magic in the faeries resides. Clever, that works for me. :D

I have the best friends!


  1. Well how cool is THAT?!? I love them! You going to show them to us on the tree?! :D

  2. LOL cute idea! I have to post a picture, I put holly and ponsetta's all over my friend I won from you.... why put him away for christmas? He's made a home, and while I'm not sure he likes being decorated... hay, he's a skull, not much in the way of language skills! GIGGLE

  3. Reason #343 why I like you...dead fairies for Christmas.

  4. I just like the juxtaposition of the skeleton and the cutesy glitter, combined with his expression. It's like he's saying "Yeah, I'm a fairy. Want to make something of it?"

  5. I was wondering the other day what your Christmas tree would look like. I think I love it!

  6. I am glad they are such a hit...Lys and I had a blast making them and coming up with unique designs for each set of wings.
    Some if the wing designs were inspired by the beautiful and powerful women in our circle!!!
