These were purchased as a resin fairy with these funky metal wings. I bought them and ripped off her wings and added these real laminated butterfly wings. They are securely attached and I added a vintage "gem" on the back. .They are about 5" tall and the wings are between 2" and 3". They are butterflies that I FOUND, I did not kill them to make these fairies. I have bought some butterflies on line and they say they are humanly harvested, I hope they are being truthfully because I would not want to be a part of the killing of these beautiful creatures. I once found a butterfly hurt in a parking lot of the grocery store and took it home, placing it on a plant that I lightly sprayed with some water so let it die in peace. Yea...I'm one of those people!
I live in the Midwest and have a obsession for re-purposing items in
crafts. There will be a large variety of things posted on here, if I like them I
usually list them on Etsy to see if they raise any interest in someone's
Many of the items I make for my friends because
they just don't have the time or craftiness...is that a word?... it should
be! So I will post my creations and probably post some of my flops,
because let's be honest, we crafters have many of those too.
Drop me a line if you feel the need to say howdy!
