We thought it would be fun to share some tips and fairy tricks (wink-wink) on building a “fairy” fun display. Our motto is “any space can be a fairy place.” Start with a space in a cupboard, a shelf on a wall, a fireplace mantel or even an outdoor setting to stage your fairy display. Any place that you would like to dedicate to your fairies will surely make a perfect display area and were sure with the help of the Whispering Willow Fairies it will soon become a magical place!
Try starting your display creation with risers that can be used to place your collection at different heights to create variety and interest. Risers can be the typical plastic type (covered with moss or floral vines,etc.) or you can use “found” object risers which is our favorite solution. Here are a few ideas for “found object” risers; flower pots turned upside down, old tins or boxes, garden stoneware in the shapes of flowers, mushrooms, or other fun forest motifs. (Check out our Forest Friend Accents for some fun fairy display pieces.) We’re sure once you start you will have so many ideas the possibilities will be endless!
Below is a little display vignette that we created with Trixy Tussle and Huckleberry Hijinx. We playfully posed them on top of an old metal picnic basket (our riser) than added a few other “found” objects to give the setting fun fairy flair (piece of a fish net, cookie cutters, and plastic fruit). “Poof” magic. . . the perfect setting for two of our favorite mischievous Hodekens!
Here’s another idea for displaying your fairies in a favorite outdoor setting. (Note the riser is the rock.) You can even bring the outdoors in by taking this idea and moving it inside to a table top, shelf, mantel, etc. Start by placing a little floral moss for your ground, add silk or real plants, a stone or two and “poof”…magic again! And because the Whispering Willow Fairies are posable they can be placed interactively within the setting. (Holding the leaf of a plant, peeking out from around the branch, etc.) Simple, easy and so much Fairy Fun!
If you would like to share . . . we’d love to see your “Fairy Fun” displays and ways that you have welcomed the Whispering Willow Fairies into your home. Hope to hear from you soon. Best Fairy Wishes!
