Fairies
June 23rd, 2011 by Craftylocks

 

Any occasion is a good time for fairy decorations. Find any excuse you can to craft up some of these.
You will need a few assorted items for this one.

Wooden Bead

Pipe Cleaner

Wool

Crepe Paper

Paper Flower (optional)

Start by giving your fairy a head of hair. Push the pipe cleaner up through the bead and then back down so that you have a loop at one end of the bead. Pop some wool in the loop for the hair and pull the pipe cleaner down into the bead so that the wool is held snuggly at the top of the bead. If you are using a paper flower – thread it onto the pipe cleaners now and push it up close to the bead.
Push a circle of crepe paper onto the pipe cleaner too. Under the crepe paper skirt, wrap one piece of pipe cleaner around the other a few times to help hold the crepe paper in place. Then trim the longer end of pipe cleaner off.
Wrap the cut off piece of pipe cleaner around the fairy between the bead and the paper flower – these are the arms. Tie a piece of wool around the crepe paper to make a waist on the fairy. Finally draw on a face and then make a friend or 5 for her.

Hi Kim,
I got them very cheaply at a craft store. I usually do not buy pre-made materials for a craft, preferring to make them ourselves, but as these were so cheap I used them.
Thanks,
Sarah
