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.
Or deliver with one of our unconventional Fairy Letters or Tooth Fairy Letters from the Super Cool gang of five Fairies, or our Christmas Letters!

What a fabulous idea! This is perfect for an extra birthday gift for my daughter who is 5 at the end of the month. Only have small jars and it’ll need a few dandelions to fill it but I’m half way there with 3 seed heads! Would like to find a way of separating the dandelion clocks a bit as they’re currently tightly gripped together…..might have to get the tweezers out.

Hi Sarah – oh fab and yes, tweezers are the way to go! I’d love to hear what she thinks of her magical bottle :). P.S. do you need one of Elfie’s Birthday Letters? x
