I wanted to make something for the people who can to the ceremony and the after party to say thank you it being a fall graduation it is very hard to find anything for graduation in any of the stores. I wanted to make something for the people who came to the ceremony and the after party to say thank you for being there for us these last 5 years. So being December I made snow men. I wrote the year and my husbands name on the hats but it really doesn't show up well. if I had more time and money I would have added arms and a small diploma rolled up in there hands.

Here you see a fairy door. It is not like any of the ones I have seen for sale. It was only $3 in parts. The parts came from the craft store Micheal's. it is a wooded Frame a Heart wood cut and a hinge.
I sanded everything before painting. I then planed what direction I would do the Triskel. I penciled the triskel then whittled it with my Boy-Scout Whittling knife. After carving I stained the wood using a red mahogany for the heart and a oak on the frame. I then decided which side would be up and husband helped me decide it could look like a leaf.
I free handed the vine work.The challenge with this project was restraint. I had the desire to turn it into a bright colorful silly thing. I had to be reminded that It could look more like a Magpies nest then a fairy door, & that a fairy would keep their house a little more concealed so they don't get captured. I tried but couldn't find a good photo to put inside the frame I wanted a photo like looking into a hobbit hole but couldn't find one. So I went with the Idea that it is a magical door into another realm the realm of the Fae.
