old dolls find new life as fairy flower dolls

Materials and Tools:

porcelain doll parts (head, arms and legs)
1 foam ball (proportioned to the doll parts)
small, medium and large silk flowers
foam glue or low-temp hot glue
silk leaves
plastic cup
glass pebbles
extra embellishments: ribbons, rhinestones and small fairy wings

Steps:

1. Attach the doll head and arms to the foam ball. Once they are in the correct position, hot-glue in place.

2. Break apart the silk flowers. Hot-glue the petals over the ball, filling in all spaces. At this point it's time to get creative, adding extra details around the doll’s head and hands. Add petals to make shoes, hats, sleeves, etc.

3. Hot-glue silk leaves around the plastic cup, overlapping the leaves until the cup surface is completely covered. Fill the cup with glass pebbles (for weight) and hot-glue the decorated ball onto the top of the cup.

4. Tie a ribbon around the cup. Glue wings, rhinestones and ribbons to the flower fairy for added embellishment.
