Vampire Bat “Count Fangela” Faerie Clothespin Doll

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This was a fun project for me for my Faerie Folk collection. 🙂

Faeries love to have fun especially on Halloween.

Allow me to present Count Fangela of Batagonia.

Count Fangela, a vampire bat faerie, decked out in a silken cape, is ready for the Halloween Ball.

Body:  Wood clothespin

As always, various recycled materials were used from my craft box

Cape: piece from an old silk shirt

Tie: piece of leftover red felt

Wings: leftover leaf appliqués from another project

Hair: feathers from an old boa

Ears: carved from wine cork stopper

The grassy rock-like base was purchased. It is covered styrofoam. I take a flat bamboo toothpick and stick it into the base for a stand.

Count Fangela’s Measurements
Approximate Height (w/base):  4 inches

Approximate Height (w/o base):  3 inches

Wingspan:  3.25 inches

P.S. Next post you will be meeting Count Fangela’s wife Countess Belle Fré of Bat-On-Rouge. 😉
