Make Your Own Halloween Skeleton Fairies

diy skeleton fairy

Here’s a tutorial for creating a Halloween decoration that’s really different and unique! Better yet, the materials are super cheap.  The skeleton is from the Dollar Tree (and comes in a pack of 4!), and the butterfly wings are from a craft store.   The only other materials you need are things you probably already have: some black paint (for aging the bones a little and darkening the eye sockets), scissors, and a hot glue gun.   I’m thinking I might need an army of these little guys . . . .

Christmas Tree of DOOM!!!

I’ve seen Christmas trees decorated in so many different themes, Jack Skeleton, Star Wars, Star Trek, Harry Potter but I do believe that this particular tree takes the prize for Most Unique!

Geyser of Awesome has shared a wonderful Cthulhu tree that is way beyond AWESOME! Using a Cthulhu stuffie as a tree topper and some finger tentacles (we all have those around the house, right?), they’ve created the ultimate in Christmas Tree DOOM!

Unicorn Roundup

The amazing Team Unicorn proclaims: “Geek Girls: Like unicorns, we’re not supposed to exist!” In honor of their awesomeness, this Roundup is featuring the best Unicorn Crafts around the web. Buy or craft some Unicorn gear for yourself, or treat your favourite geeky lady to some Unicorn gifts.  Once you’re done here, check out their video for more proof of how Team Unicorn Rocks!

*****************************************

10.  Unicorn Bookmark

The perfect way to hold your place in your favorite book.  It is simple and elegant, but the colorful jewels lead to the little unicorn trinket.  A discrete way to boast geek girl pride.

9.  Unicorn Clay Necklace

Hang your Unicorn pride around your neck with this clay necklace.  This delicate piece captures the grace of the mythical beast, and the sparkling eye will capture attention.

8.  Embroidered Unicorn

This adorable unicorn is embroidered in bold colors on a heart fabric background.  This little guy has some major personality with his spiky hair, flaring nostrils, and flower collar.

7.  Luna the Unicorn Amigurumi

Everyone could use a cuddle Unicorn.  This pattern for Luna will help you make a Unicorn army to take over the world with… or at least to snuggle with.  Make one for every geeky girl you know and spread the Unicorn word.

6.  Valentine Unicorn

This little Valentine Unicorn was sculpted from Polymer Clay.  Her big eyes and swirly pink hair might be a cuteness overload for some, but shouldn’t everyone make an exception for cuteness on Valentines day?

5.  Where Rainbows Come From

We interrupt all of the previous cuteness with a revelation on the origins of rainbows.  This 4×4 print says it all.  Position it above your computer so the Unicorn appears to pour rainbow geekiness into your monitor.

4.  My Other Ride is a Unicorn

This shirt makes me want to visit my mom’s ranch and wear it while horseback riding.  Either that, or wear it while beating my friends in some Mario Cart.

3.  Unicorn Hat

This hat is perfect if you want to tell the world about your Unicorn/Geek status.  However, it might make it a little awkward if your friend is wearing the shirt featured in #4!

2.  Mounted Unicorn

Some people appreciate a good trophy.  This crochet Unicorn’s name is Matthew, and he perhaps got bested by a geek girl who then decided to show him off.  Matthew is sure to make visitors do a double take.

1.  The Last Unicorn

The last in this roundup is an icon for many geek girls.  The Last Unicorn is a book and movie that many grew up loving.  This little plushie made from microplush, faux fur, and faux suede also has a wire skeleton that makes her poseable.  The crafter artist did a great job of bringing to life our favorite Unicorn.
