Pumpkin Patch Fairies

I worked all day in my jammies to make chicken stock, start beans and make these seven fairies. I can't believe it took so long. They're pipe cleaners, googlie eyes, feathers, poof balls (these are technical terms, natch), and assorted odds and ends. One has ribbon, another pieces of seed pod, another cotton, another felted wool, another petals, another bead strands, and the last dyed alpaca fur. Didn't have to buy a dang thing because all that was in my craft box. We should really do more crafting.
Aleks meanwhile made all sorts of interesting puffs. One is a snitch and one a sorcerer's stone, but those are the only ones I remember.

Those are awesome! Basic question here, but what kind of glue did you use? I can never get anything to stick to poof balls :p

We tried tacky Glue at first, but ended up relying on hot glue. I did use the tacky glue for the eys, which worked okay.
