It’s Christmas at the fairy bistro and this year they’ve decided to go for a very natural, rustic look. It’s all the rage at the moment according to the trend setters in the fairy world 😉
It looks like they’ve been spending time on Pinterest and made themselves a driftwood Christmas tree. I asked the owner of the bistro how she did it. She’s such a sweetie pie, she gave me the full tutorial to share with you all. Apparently she found some twigs and used her
glue gun magic wand to stack them together, starting with the longest, biggest twig at the bottom and working up towards the smallest twig at the top.
The fairies added a small bell at the very top and stuck the tree on to a lid, that they covered with tin foil and pretty paper. They flocked the Christmas tree with a little bit of
milk powder fairy dust.
In my opinion there’s nothing as beautiful and nostalgic as a well-flocked Christmas tree 😉Tweet Me
I complimented her on her bistro table and chairs. And wouldn’t you know it, she had a tutorial for that too and she let me in on a secret. Those little fairies have been borrowing our silicone muffin trays to kit out their bistro. I had a sneaky suspicion that someone’s been using them, but I never would have guessed it was the fairies. To create the gorgeous in lay on top of the table the fairies placed a flat bead in the bottom of the tray and then poured a thin layer of Plaster of Paris over the bead.
The chairs were made in the same way using smaller silicone muffin cups. While the Plaster of Paris was still wet they stuck some skewers inside for the legs. According to the “muffin borrowing fairy”, the table and chairs were ready within minutes and they just popped out of those molds. And I’ve been wondering why our muffins always taste so gritty.
The inlay looks so pretty and adds a touch of class to bistro tables.
Gritty muffins aside, I think the table and chairs look lovely and fit the decor perfectly. They also borrowed some graphics from The Graphics Fairy to make the sign at the back. They just added a frame made from skewers.
The whole vibe at the fairy bistro is very relaxed and natural; borrowed bits and all.
The little fairy invited me to stay for a while and savor some of her delicious dishes. Unfortunately I had a blog post to write, but I did promise that I’d come back sometime soon. Do you want to join me? Entrance is free and all she asks in return is that you share her craftiness 😉
Wishing everyone a very merry and safe festive season. Sending love and fairy kisses as always
