Today I finally put my thoughts into action. For this project, I spent $2.97 to buy some glittered star shaped stickers from Walmart. Everything else I already had. So, this project was cheap.
|The size of the Disney Fairies.|
|Fishing line to attach them to the ceiling.|
|These were $2.97 at Walmart|
|I would position my fingers in all the star grooves when lowering the second star down in order to help them line up evenly with no overhang. If overhang occurs, you can just trim it off.|
|Both sides now closed over the fishing line|
|Clip off any additional fishing line hanging out the bottom.|
|If you kept the long end towards a point of the star, it should hang like this.|
Now for the fairies. I turned them over and just played with the fishing line until I got it in a position around the wings that would allow the fairy to hang like it was flying, and not like it was free falling. This fishing line tied really easily and did not slip at all.
|Tinker Bell prepped and ready for flight.|
|All the stars in the pack have been sealed onto fishing line.|
Now comes the hard part. Figuring out how to attach them to the ceiling. I didn't want to use push pins or thumb tacks because they would show too much. I knew scotch tape would work fine for the stars because they are light as feathers. But the fairies would definitely need something with a better hold. I got the idea to try and superglue the line to the ceiling. I put on some surgical gloves because if ANYONE is going to accidentally glue themselves to something as stupid as a ceiling...it's going to be me. After several failed attempts to glue the fishing line directly to the ceiling, I decided to give it the assistance of the scotch tape. Here are the pictures of what I did.
|Place the fishing line over the tape|
|Add a dab of super glue to the tape where the line rests on it. Can you see it?|
So here are a couple picture of the finished project. All together there are eight fairies and 22 dangle stars.
