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

Faeries love to have fun especially on Halloween.

Allow me to present Countess Belle Fré of Bat-On-Rouge.

Countess Belle Fré, a vampire bat faerie, decked out in antique silk and lace, is ready to attend the Halloween Ball with her husband Count Fangela.

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

Body: Wood Clothespin

Dress: antique silk covered with antique lace and finished off with a pearl from a broken necklace

Wings: leftover leaf appliqués from another project, sprinkled with glitter glue

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.

Countess Belle Fré’s Measurements:

Approximate Height (w/base): 4 inches

Approximate Height (w/o base): 3 inches

Wingspan: 4.0 inches

Enjoy!
