The Fairy Spider and her SpiderWeb Door

A work in Progress

I had a small wood circle and thought it might lend a touch of whimsy to a Fairy's Door so I went about creating a little Fairy/Hobbit Door. The shape of it reminds me more of a Hobbit's door to their home but being such a tiny door I thought it was meant more for a Fairy, actually a Fairy Spider would suit it best : )


Materials Used

Wood Circle

E 6ooo Glue

French Vintage Glass Button

Art Deco ? Earrings

Upholstery Tack

Inks

Silver Leaf

Wood Burning Tool

Sorry but when I wrote this post it was early morning and I was half asleep so I forgot to say that the spider web , spider and flowers were first sketched in followed by wood burning and then the silver leaf was applied.


I started with a light sketch of the web and Fairy Spider and then applied the silver leaf to the Fairy Spider and her web. I then went over the web threads with a metal tool to give a thinner touch to the Spider Fairy's web threads. The silver leaf is wonderful in mimicking the glittery gossamer silken threads created by the Fairy Spider. After that was done, I worked in the colours with inks. I also thought it be great to have the Spider Fairy know at all times who comes knocking at her door by enclosing a Peep Hole at her door.So I drilled a hold in the centre of the wood circle and added the glass button, when the Fairy Spider Door is placed in front of a light source a light shines through…..magical. 




I will now need to attach the Fairy Spider Door to the burled wood base 











and then I think I will add this Spider Fairy Door to my Etsy shop, I just can't keep holding on to everything : )

So until next time signing off and don't forget to visit everyone at PPF!

I love the spider web. . .I take pictures of them. We have 'crab' spiders that make webs from one end of our world to another 2-car lengths across.. . .they get going and don't stop. Thanks for telling me the way you created it. Blessings, Janet PPF
