Fairy Chair

Make miniature furniture from twigs, flowers, and leaves.
Getting Started

Once you start making fairy
furniture...

This miniature furniture adds a charming country look to any place it is displayed.

What You Need:

...you might find it difficult...

  • 12 reasonably straight twigs (under 1 foot long) of varying widths to form the seat frame and legs
  • Curling or twisted twigs for decorating a chair back
  • Small dried flowers, such as pansies, hydrangeas, or creeping zinnias
  • Lichen, dried
  • Tweezers
  • Bypass clippers
  • Hot-glue gun and hot-glue sticks

Tips:

...to stop!

  • Twigs should be dry.
  • Don't use green wood; it shrinks and the bark comes loose, which will cause your furniture to collapse.
  • Look for wood with notches; other branches and flowers will fit naturally in the grooves.
  • The thicker the twigs, the easier it will be to make the chair.
  • Use sharp clippers for accurate cutting and to prevent wood from crushing.
  • Always make sure glue has dried before moving on to the next step.
