Birthday Fairy Peat Pot and Anything Goes Challenge


Today I’m sharing a sweet little project I made for my BFF Heather for her birthday. It’s not actually until the 6th of January. Guess I’m early for once : )

IMG_0333I covered the little pot with torn strips of book page then inked it heavily and stamped a dot border at the bottom.

IMG_0336The little girl is a vintage image from Graphic’s Fairy. I trimmed off her top hat and gave her a party hat complete with glitter and a pom pom top.  wings for her back make her a proper fairy. The super simple banner is just trimmed paper…inked and stamped and glittered of course. It’s held up with silver wire. I used a chenille stem as the “handle”

IMG_0337-001I made half of a paper rosette to help hold in the paper filler in the pot. for the rim I knew I wanted to add real vintage buttons so I layered them onto this super beautiful trim from Really Reasonable Ribbon . I also added a few little tags…one craft brown and one with a “6” for her birthdate.


I added lot’s of paper filler to hide the foam insert…reminds me of a little nest : ) There are two generous sized bows there on the left that I created using Ivory Wrinkle Ribbon also from RRR. I secured it to the foam with 2 pretty star topped pins.

Not to worry about spoiling the surprise…I was too excited and gave it to her already. Tee Hee.

I’m also sharing this project with the “Anything Goes Challenge” over at Really Reasonable Ribbon’s Ramblings. Have you got an anything goes kind of project you want to share???

  3. What a sweet birthday gift…I love all these things people are doing with peat pots. I finally bought a bunch, but so far, they’re still peat pots.. this gives me inspiration to get going. Thanks.

  4. I just made this as an invitation for my twin grand kids. Thank you so much. I used a take-out paper soup cup and other changes but I think it turned out great – thank you so much for the inspiration. If you would like to take a peek at mine here is the link to my family blog:

    I first saw this post on Facebook and was captivated. I’m going to attempt to make a similar little pot for Halloween. I’ll post that when I’m done. Until then, enjoy Polly’s post and follow her if you’re inclined toward paper crafts. She has some adorable ideas on her blog.
