Tutorial: How to make a miniature fairy tale axe
Sometimes, it is nice to give a gnome a little tool he can work with, for instance, an axe to gather firewood.
Here’s a very simple tutorial on how to make a miniature axe for your fairy tale scene or seasons table. This one was made for the grumpy gnome in Snow White and Rose Red.
Here’s what you will need:
(1) a twig
(2) a tiny piece of corrugated cardboard
(3) aluminum foil. I happen to have some Nashua silver aluminum foil tape from Home Depot!
The Very Simple Tutorial!
(1) Snap twig to preferred size
(3) place cardboard/twig onto aluminum foil. Wrap. Trim off excess foil.
I like using that hardware store Nashua tape because it is sticky and sturdy.
Here are some men with axes…
