Pixie Pebbles


We're always trying to come up with new ways to use Pixies Dust. While beach combing one day the idea of the Pixie Pebble jumped into my head. They are so much fun to make and are a great little treasure to leave as a gift for your fairy or maybe, if you're lucky, your fairy will leave some for you!

Here's what you need:
Pixie Dust (aka glitter)
For a softer, mossier look, you can use flocking powder - see the light pink stone in the bottom of the picture.
Hot Glue Gun -I have tried many glues and hot glue gives the best results hands down.
Start by pouring a generous amount of
Pixie Dust  into a small dish.

Next grab your hot glue gun and make
a little "puddle" of glue in the center of the
 Pixie Dust. Be careful not to touch the
sides of the dish.
Wait about 10 seconds for the hot glue
to smooth out into a pebble shape. Don't worry
if you have some little strings sticking off,
they can be cut off later. Pour Pixie Dust on top of
the smooth glue and give the dish a tiny shake.
Wait about 5 minutes and then uncover your treasure!
