These are really fun to make and the result is especially effective. We have called these cute little things "Fairy Mushrooms" as the fairy toys and gnomes in our house seem to really enjoy playing with them. They're very good for miniature tea parties, dancing and singing. Make lots of them and create your very own Fairy Ring - you never know what magic may await.

Little children will love playing with these, but the painting part itself is a bit fiddly and probably better left for older children. You can buy wooden door knobs in any hardware store and the paint, glitter and varnish can be found in any discount variety store. I think these would make an excellent children's birthday present or an ideal addition to any Fairy Party.
