Christmas Decorating at the Fairy Bistro

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 HomeTalk 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. She used some twigs that she found in the garden and used her 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 snowy fairy dust.
For the bistro tables and chairs she used silicone muffin trays and Plaster of Paris.
While the Plaster of Paris was still wet they stuck some skewers inside for the legs. According to the 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.
They even added an inlay to the table top for a little Christmas sparkle.
The little fairy invited me to stay for a while and savor some of her delicious dishes. Unfortunately I had a 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. 😉
For loads more fairy crafts come join the fairies on the blog. They're really friendly and love sharing.

    Very cute! Where did you purchase the inlay for the table? I really like it.

    I like the "driftwood tree" idea. I already make a lot of fairy furniture but never thought of making a tree that way. I'll add some beads as ornaments I think. I have saved twigs, but I also have dried daylily stems that work as well.

    Now I'll be sneaking around the neighborhood looking for branches and twigs. Thanks,
