I was bopping around on pinterest during a middle of the night wide awake time (so frustrating!) the other day. If you’ve been reading my blog lately you know, there’s a lot of fairy play happening in our house, and yard, right now… summer of fairies parts 1 and 2 found here for your entertainment.
Anyway, I knew we were expecting a playdate with another fairy dreaming little girl and I thought it would be fun to do a fairy craft! I found popsicle stick fairies here and felt pinspired (listen to me! I’m ridiculous!)
I picked up a few supplies at Walmart yesterday morning, and yesterday afternoon we made fairies- adorable fairies- in 2 ways!
Popsicle Stick Fairies (way 1)
Supplies- jumbo popsicle sticks, hot glue gun, construction paper, decorative tissue paper, twist ties, markers (not pictured- oops)
I drew on face and hair- she got braids in the back for fun!
I used some tissue paper and a twist tie to fashion a dress.
I cut 4 little wings out of construction paper and hot glue them in place.
She got a little tissue bow, and some little matching marker shoes. Then I got to sit back and watch little children flutter those sweet fairies all over the place!
Toilet Paper Roll Fairy (way 2)
Now this fairy happened while the girls were playing with their popsicle stick fairies. I just couldn’t get the idea out of my head so I crafted her up all by myself- I think she turned out super cute.
Supplies needed- toilet paper roll, yarn, construction paper hot glue gun and glue, markers, and a makeshift wand (markers and wand not pictures here… sorry)
Cut yarn and glue around the top of one side of the fairy. I gave her bangs- then I used a piece of yarn to tie her hair together into a pony tail.
I gave her a tissue paper dress with a yarn belt. She got a marker face complete with eyelashes! Then I cut construction paper legs and arm and hot glued them in place.
Her wings were glued on!
I felt she needed a wand so I used a little wire and a sparkly foam ball from my crafting “junk drawer” to make one. I glued it to her little mitten hand.
And there she is!
These fairies made for a fun and easy afternoon of crafts. Thank you for stopping by the fancy elephant! Have a beautiful day!
