Tonight I bring to you what ended up being a family project, my daughter's Evil Fairy Wand. My oldest daughter is dressing up as an Evil Fairy for Halloween this year and every fairy has to have a wand. Well since she is an Evil Fairy her wand needed to represent that too.
The scull is Styrofoam and I bought it last year on clearance at Walmart, in fact I bought 2 with no idea in mind as to what I was going to do with them. My mom found this fantastic lower arm with a hand attached to it and a bag of (plastic) bones, I believe 50% off at Savers. My oldest daughter had the gems in her craft stash. I had the tulle and ribbon in my stash.
So it went like this: my husband attached a bone from the bag of bones to the lower arm and attached the scull to the hand. He used hot glue and floral wire, then some craft paint to make it all look cohesive. Then we chose the gems for the scull and glued them into place. Lastly I made a head band for the scull with the tulle and ribbon.
Here is a close up:
Here's the back...you can see the scull resting on the hand:
It now rests by the front door until Halloween night, when my Evil Fairy can take flight.
I am entering my Evil Fairy Wand in the following challenge:
- Haunted Design House - HDH #178 - Macabre Monday - Zombies and Creeps - You are to create a dark, Gothis, or Halloween based art piece that showcases Zombies or Classic Creeps in some way. I believe this to be a Classic Creep because of the scull (skeleton)
