Fairy Carousel-Creative Embellishments June 2020 Challenge

Hey, all! I got to feeling rather ambitious this month and decided that I wanted to make myself a Fairy Carousel using the carousel from the Carousel Ride SVG Kit by SVGCuts. The original carousel is a cupcake holder, but I didn’t need to hold cupcakes, I just needed a place for my Fairies from Creative Embellishments to go for a ride!

With all the shine from the epoxy and embossing powder, I just had to add a string of lights! Check out the video below the Creative Embellishments Challenge image.

After I followed the assembly instructions on SVGCuts, I coated everything in epoxy (in stages!), attached my fairies, added the filigree, ran the lights, and added the flatbacks! Most of the time spent on this project was waiting for the epoxy to dry and the carousel assembly.

Here are some close-ups:
