Kokeshi Dolls Sake Tea Party - Fairy Garden Style

This week, I created Kokeshi Sake Tea Party Cups, for the fairies.

Kokeshi Dolls Saki Tea Party - Fairy Garden Style
The Process:

How to:

Find used, vintage Japenese Kokeshi Birthday Candle holders. Fill in the candle holes with polymer clay. Repaint hair and caps to blend, revive color with a coat of polyurethane. (Discard any broken or damaged holders).

Create tiny Sake Cups and Sake Vases using polymer clay. Then, paint them using tweezers and acrylic paint. Note: I used air dry clay because I wanted a rougher finish than baked clay.

Find cute Sake tea cups and some cherry blossoms. Fill the cups with foam.

Add moss and a tiny card stock tray. Arrange the items just the way you want them.

Hint: using a heat gun, you can carefully heat plastic stems to make them bend and hold the curve where you want them. Work quick and a little at a time, or you'll melt the whole thing. Trust me.

Add a little sign and invite the fairies to a Sake Party!
