Simple things such as this little bottle of magical DIY Fairy or Christmas wishes, are often the most magical for children. And being a huge fan of nature and crafts myself, making something like this also ticks all my boxes!
These little bottles of magical wonder, could be a gift from your child’s Tooth Fairy, from a ‘normal’ fairy through your fairy door, or be popped into a Christmas Stocking as a bottle of Christmas Wishes from the North Pole. Whichever way, this little bottle full of happiness and love wishes, makes a beautiful keepsake.
These cute little cork-stoppered glass bottles are very easy to find on eBay, and dandelion clocks are all over the place at the moment! If you think you might like to do this, grab a dandelion clock now, and pop it in a small plastic bag to stop the seeds from flying off everywhere, until you’ve managed to find a little bottle!
To recreate this, all you do is very gently hold one of the ‘stems’ (or filamentous achenes) if you want to be official and totally unmagical) with a pair of tweezers, and snip the seed off with a pair of scissors. You can of course leave the seed attached, but what you’ll have at the end is … instead of a bottle of magical DIY Tooth Fairy or Christmas wishes, you’ll have what will look like a bottle of rat droppings with surrounded by fluffy bits. Each to their own of course.
If you do decide to make them into Christmas Wishes to pop into a Christmas Stocking on Christmas Eve, these hand-stamped Natural Linen Bags are perfect to put them in.
