Nature Fairy

for Alter It Monthly's July theme, Dolls, i created a garden fairy!

The body is a broken Barbie torso. I used leftover petals from my wedding to cover it.
in each flower i placed a small glass bead. The wings are a metal butterfly I found at a thrift store. I held that together with a screw.

It is hung with an eye hook at the top. There is also an eye hook at the bottom for the shiny glass beads. I love the way the sunlight catches in it.
