Annie's Party Planning...Kid's Craft




    I FINALLY finished my sample of the craft the girls will make at the party...Fairy Glitter Globes!  I call them snowglobes but Annie has corrected me...glitter globes they are!  I learned a lot making this one.  This one still needs a prettier ribbon but I am sooooo glad I tried it ahead of time!   Perfect for a garden tea party!

The kids can't keep their hands off it!

Bo has grabbed it & made a run for it quite a few times :)


Salsa Jar (painted  lid)
Glitter
Beads
Fairy
Plastic Juice Cap (to raise fairy up)
Hot Glue Gun (to seal jar)
Floral Bond (fasten fairy)
Glycerin (just a few drops)
& a good shake

love you all!

OK...you have totally out done yourself...Way too cute for words, but you know me, I'll always find a few. Oh, I miss the days of "wee squeals of excited bliss". So excuse me, while I live vicariously through your charming family...

Still smiling Rosie

Adorable! This is the kind of thing my little girl would have LOVED! Too bad she's 13 now. Sniff. My days of princess and fairy parties are over. Sigh.

Enjoy every fairy dust-covered moment, Libbie. ;0) Because just like the floating glitter, one minute they'll be there and the next those moments will be gone. ;0)

You're a good mommy for making her memories so special.
