Introduction: Fairy in a Bottle

My daughter wanted me to make her some new jewelry today, and I decided to treat myself with a five-dollar healing fairy from Legend of Zelda. This took less than half an hour, and I am pleased with the little conversation piece.

(The jewelry my daughter loves so much, by the way, is from https://www.instructables.com/id/A-Simple-Wire-Ring/ and https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-make-Bangles/ .)

Step 1: Step 1: Thread That Bead and Start Bending


Step 2: Fill Your Bottle

No pictures of this step, since there wasn't much to show. Fill your bottle with something thick and clear. I used glycerin, but something thicker to suspend the charm would be more ideal. Resin, maybe?

Step 3: Chalk Break.

The three year old in your life may decide it's time for chalk robots at this point. Leave your fairy to settle.

Step 4: In Case of Death, Break Glass.

Insert the charm, aaaaand done.

    lol chalk break. Really nice though, I am going to try this.

    What kind of wire did you use?

    This is awesome, thanks for sharing! Where did you buy the bottle and the glycerin?

    You can get glycerin at just about any supermarket or drugstore. The bottle was at Hobby Lobby
