Magical Miniatures

If you love all things magical and miniature you are in the right place.

About me and my blog

I am a mother of three and work on a market stall. In my free time I love to make magical miniatures. It all started with my gran who spent hours when I was a child teaching me how to make do. This entailed mending and fixing and making things from scratch. My dolls house consisted of cardboard boxes with windows cut out, beautifully decorated and all furniture hand made. We sat for hours making clothes and accessories for my dolls to the envy of my friends that all had the same generic stuff. So thanks gran for the inspiration. I hope you enjoy my art and my blog. Thanks for visiting.

A witchy Christmas tree topper

I have made a start on the witchy christmas tree decoration set. So far I have made the witch to top the tree with.
Her head is polystyrene and i've used bullion for her hair. Her hat is card covered over with lace. The body made from wire then woven over with wool stops just below the waist where she slots into a cardboard cone so that she sits over the top branch of the tree. I have covered this in black and red feathers creating the skirt.
The top of her gown is ribbon and her broom is wood and string.
I intend to do some 1 inch miniature witches in cages for baubles to match.
