    Autumn Fairy Throne & FLASH Sale on Lights

    Filed under Art Projects, Back in Stock, Collage Sheets, Fairy Garden, Giveaways, Miniatures, Sale, Shannon Cooper

    Note: most of the links on this post no longer work, as we moved to a new Web site in 2018. However, you can see the supply list items from Shannon’s project that are still available on the new site.

    ALL LEDs & Lights on sale for 20%; ends FRIDAY night, November 4th!

    Maybe it’s in honor of Daylight Savings Time ending this weekend (note: it ended last weekend in the UK… makes my BBC schedule off a bit this week)… or maybe it’s because of the 3 new little lights being announced today…

    Note: a few items in that section are on clearance, so they are marked 50% off!

    See the LEDs & Lights section.
     


    Ah… Oohh… Look at that beautiful Autumn Throne for a Fairy by Design Team Member Shannon Cooper!

    It has so much charm and cleverness packed into a tiny space (see that little photo of me holding the new chair).

    (Note: there’s a bigger version of this new chair, too… although “bigger” is only 5″ tall.)

    I love the aged wood appearance, the tiny oak leaves above the top of the chair, the bowls made of acorn caps with berries…

    And those little dots of Liquid Pearls… they catch the light and almost look like tiny lights or jewels set into the sides of the chair.

    AND… the scepter! Shannon provides a mini tutorial and it’s such a clever bit: it’s made from one of the Miniature Rustic Brooms! A broomstick is used as the scepter handle — and the bristles are cleverly used to form the twiggy back of the throne! Plus it’s so pretty capped off with another Copper Acorn Charm and a Pumpkin Pod.

    See more photos are learn about her 5 minute scepter tutorial in Shannon’s blog post. And be sure to come back to enter today’s Giveaway — that includes EVERYTHING in Shannon’s supply list!)

    1. Joy Purcell says:

      If I win, I will use the supplies to decorate a mirror that I just bought specifically to decorate with fall items!

    2. I like it as a fairy throne. I would use it as that.

    3. Susan S says:

      Oh so cute! Very imaginative.

    4. Kathlene Ford-Walters says:

      The fairy throne is awesome. I think I would decorate it as a throne for an Alice in Wonderland theme.

    5. barb macaskill says:

      I would make a Fairy Throne fit for the Ultimate Grand Fairy of the World! She is the most powerful fairy in all the lands and her throne was taken by some nasty trolls! She has decided that she is going to have a throne made to her specifications, one of which will be that any troll trying to take it will be turned into a mosquito that has endless life. He will forever be swatted at and have to relive it constantly!

    6. Nancy E says:

      The fairy throne is lovely. I would create a special throne for Santa to rest his weary bones!

    7. Sharon says:

      This would become a beautiful fairy throne! I have the perfect fairy to sit on this throne, with tiny birds and animals to sit at her feet. It would be decorated with flowers and vines. I’d use jewels and the pearls. I’d love the opportunity to do this project. Thank you!

    8. Carla says:

      I love the fall theme, but I think I would make a throne for A mall Santa

    9. Cynthia Currie says:

      Very clever! I will make a set of four; one for each season.

    10. Connie L. says:

      I would decorate a throne for Danerys.

    11. Nadine says:

      More great stuff!

    12. Traci says:

      Not a clue what I’d make but the colors are gorgeous. I love the fall colors so pretty. >^..^<

    13. Evelyn Dawson says:

      Lots of my favorite things – miniature, chairs, fairies – and all in a gorgeous throne.
      I really hope I win but even if I don’t I will have to get everything to make at least one for myself (and one for a gift!). I have a larger bell jar display that I will fill with a canopy to frame the chair and a string of those tiny led lights on wire.

    14. I LOVE this chair I would dress it up Steampunk style!!

    15. Nancy Olsen says:

      Not sure what I’d make – maybe a comfortable chair for visiting spirits to relax in.

    16. Linda Hebbs says:

      I am in the process of making a Fairie diorama for my sister. The Fairie Throne would work perfectly in the setting !

    17. Jan Korzenaskie says:

      Love this kit! I would make a throne for Marie Antoinette.

    18. Karen says:

      Great giveaway and my fairies will have the best seat in the house!

    19. itsmebarbj says:

      If I win this I will add it to my Halloween theme that sits on my buffet in the dining room. I have houses and pumpkins and a wagon carrying pumpkins with ghosts hanging from some of the trees, and much more that really sets these pieces into the main scheme of things

    20. MAry mac says:

      Love the this idea

    21. Michelle says:

      If I win this I would use it in the alice in wonderland shadowbox I am working on.

    22. Kat Cashwell says:

      Love this chair and I would make chair for Father Autumn!

    23. Jen R says:

      A fairy throne but I think I will theme it spring instead.

    24. LeAnn says:

      I love the fairy throne idea. I would either do that or make a throne that is Alice in Wonderland themed.

    25. Emily D says:

      I’d make a throne for a vampire.

    26. Jo says:

      Love the throne! I would make it part of my miniature haunted house!
      Or maybe a fairy or mouse throne!

    27. Laural says:

      I would have to make a fairy throne similar to this one. I love the idea

    28. Leah Fein says:

      Santa’s sleigh

    29. Marcella says:

      It is very creative! Today, I have no idea what I would make with the supplies but something very fairy like.

    30. Lou Anne says:

      I love the fairy throne-maybe make a spring fairy throne, though autumn is my favorite season.

    31. Jennie Ingram says:

      Well done Shannon! I would use the set to make a tiny fairy Thanksgiving table. 🙂

      A throne fit for a Fairy King!

    33. Dona Mandell says:

      I would love to win the liquid pearls fall colors paint to experiment with numerous faux foods and plants. The colors looks rich and lucious and I can see them bringing a new flavor to many small leaves and fruits.

    34. Cheryl Lee says:

      This is so cute, Autumn is my favorite season so I would do an Autumn chair. Love fall colors! Congrats to Charlene for winning last time, lucky girl!

    35. Jean Marmo says:

      Just delightful! I would make it for my mom for her faerie garden!

    36. Karen Mallory says:

      I would love to make a winter fairy chair dripping with icicles!

    37. M. C. Sparks says:

      Thinking a elf throne from The Hobbit

    38. Tana says:

      Maybe a witches throne. I do love the fairy throne though.

    39. Jessica says:

      I’ll make a pathway to winter’s throne

    40. Evelyn Reyes says:

      It would be a great addition to my dollhouse garden!!

    41. Margaret D says:

      I would make a goblin throne I think bc goblins are so autumnal. I love it all!!!! And I am going to make a scepter for sure. Actually I should make a scepter wand and potion booth!

    42. I will make Fairy tale sceans, if I win! Fairies are my favorite things to do!

    43. I would make a fairy throne but for my summer Fairy Garden! I love this!
