DIY Flower Fairy Patio Set

Recently I discovered a delicious organic alcohol free apple cider and it even has a champagne cork! So finally I could make a lovely fairy chair like the ones I had seen on Pinterest. After that I became inspired and designed a matching patio table with a flower parasol.

Here is my simplified version of the chair, 
all you need is a wire cage from a champagne or cider bottle and a wire cutter;

1 - Cut the loop from the lower wire of the cage.
2 - Remove the wire completely from the cage leaving it in one piece.
3 - Shape a chair back by bending the wire.
4 - Twist the chair back onto the legs and trim excessive wire.
5 - Bow the end of the legs slightly.

Optional; you can remove the chair seat before you attach the chair back and replace it later.

For the patio table you will need:

- a wire cage 
- sharp scissors/knife
- wire cutters
- plastic or glass cap to use as a tiny vase
- a screw cap of 4 to 5 cm
- hot glue gun
- a flower with a long stem and water

 1- Cut the loop from the lower wire of the cage and remove the wire completely from the cage leaving it in one piece.
2 - Remove the seat from the wire cage. 
Prick a hole in the screw cap using scissors.
3 - Glue the wire cage to the bottom of the screw cap with a hot glue gun.
Glue the plastic cap in the center of the wire cage onto the screw cap, 
with the open side below the hole.
4 - Fill the plastic cap with water trough the hole in the screw cap.
Bow the end of the legs slightly and place a flower in the patio table vase.

 This makes such a lovely summer table decoration!
I hope you enjoy it and I wish you a lovely weekend.
