I'm still hanging on to the coziness of winter, but my mind does begin to wander a wee bit now and again to thoughts of June's fresh, new growth. This bouquet of straw toppers came together as quickly as a stroll to my summertime cutting garden. Snip around the edges, punch a hole, insert a straw. That easy. I put one in Dick's green smoothie this morning. Show your love.
Oh, and a fairy. In amongst the blossoms, there's always a fairy. Move slowly and gently so as not to startle her. You'll see her.
The blossom straw toppers, fairy cupcake toppers, plus additional sweetness can be found in my daughter Heather's fairy blossoms party play kit. The paper straws are available in my daughter Jessie's online fort and field shop. Jess sells purple/white and green/white striped straws that would be oh-so-pretty with these blossoms, too. Sub plastic straws? Uh... no.
I also used a blossom and leaf from Heather's fairy blossoms party play kit in this cupcake liner garland. I made three garlands and hung them vertically at varying lengths in my window where the sunlight adds to the happiness.
To make the garland, thread yarn into a large-eyed needle to connect varying sizes of cupcake liners, paper doilies, blossoms, and leaves. Cut a paper straw into segments and insert one into a hole punched into a blossom and one into a leaf. The straw acts as a spacer to vary the span between various materials used in your garland. Nestle one cupcake liner inside another, turn some upside down... have fun with it.
