How to Catch a Fairy
These simple steps will help you catch a fairy. Holding this arcane knowledge is a gift. You must be sure to follow the steps exactly as I give them, or it will not work or worse, you could end up with something unintended. Don’t forget that fairies are very vigilant little beings that are known to be hotspurs and they will bite if threatened. They will try to outsmart you but they do have weaknesses. They cannot tell a lie and they are weakened by lemon juice. Fairies have all kinds of magical powers and once you catch one; it belongs to you and so does its magic.
1.) Find a small transparent green bottle (fairies love the color green.) Make sure the top of the bottle remains open and be sure that it’s a bottle that the fairies will like.
2.) After you find the perfect bottle fill it with the following ingredients:
- 1 teaspoon of 1st mornings dew
- ½ teaspoon of green glitter
- 2 puny prism crystals
- 1 tablespoon of sugar
- 1 teaspoon of brown sugar
- ½ teaspoon of powered sugar
- 1 tablespoon of grenadine
- 3 drops of lemon juice
Do not use the following until instructed to do so:
- 1 Dandelion
- 1 small iron bar cage (Iron is extremely poisonous to fairies they won’t touch it.)
- 1 pair of thick gloves
3.) Wipe lemon juice all around the outside of the bottle; then tie a piece of small green ribbon around the bottle in the shape of a bow. Find an area with big oak trees (Oak is their favorite tree), or find a garden with plenty of daisies, honeysuckles, or fairy-flax. Fairies love these flowers the most.
4.) There must be running water nearby whether it’s a stream or a garden pond with a fountain. Fairies love the sound of running water. It’s almost irresistible to them.
Once you have followed the previous steps it is very important that you wait until either dawn or dusk to recite the following words. This is where you will need the dandelion. Blow the pieces into the air then say out loud the following words:
Fairies I call upon to open this door,
Magical little beings and so much more.
I’ve brought you a gift, a treasure.
Please accept this delight with pleasure.
