Special Moment Jar Fairies!
Sometimes you are looking for that one last gift that really is special, when you can't find it, why not make it, create a special gift with a theme. The above Jar Fairy was made into a little vignette for my Mom's birthday a few years agot.
The inside base of the jar was filled with a mix of light green reindeer moss, and light green excelsior, then I used a real egg which was drained, cut in half, bleached and painted with acrylics, glued ontop of the moss.
Next I created a 3-D fairy/pixie complete with rounded pixie hat, wings and wand, glued to the inside of the egg, followed with a sprinkle of glitter, followed by more embellishments on the outside of the jar with rub ons, glitter, lettering, ribbons and an altered art tag made from paint chip sample.
Finally cover the metal lid with wood glue, let dry, paint with acrylic paint,, let dry, coat with glue and glitter, let dry!
This jar has been a hit with customers, I've made several others similar to this, such as this jar fairy below for Rosanna:
Also try altering the lids of your jars with images and papers!
