My girls have loved fairies for a long time. It started with a healthy love of pirates mingled with Peter Pan and then the blonde little Pixie named Tinkerbell became one of their favorites. Grandma made two adorable fairy costumes so Little Sister was Tinkerbell at Disney World, in the Disney Store, and trick-or-treating. Since we are having theme weeks this summer it was important to have a great fairy craft.
Wooden Fairy Craft
After a trip to JoAnn Fabrics I purchased two packages of wood doll bodies. They were about $4.00, but a craft store coupon brought the price down to $2.40, which is much easier to swallow. Our Craft Supply closet is full of leftover flowers, chenille stems, buttons, pom-poms and more. If you do not have a bunch of craft supplies you can wander the aisles of the craft store to find some accessories for your fairies. The clearance aisle or the dollar section are good places to check!
All it took was ingenuity and we created a family of wooden fairies. I pulled out a Sharpie because I knew it would be quick and easy…but I will be the first to admit that some acrylic paint would have been a better choice for the fairy faces.
We also created Magical Fairy Houses!!! It’s amazing how you can turn a $1.00 bird house into something so super cute! We definitely had inspiration after visiting the Fairy Trail at Sawnee Mountain Preserve in Cumming, Geogia (North of Atlanta).
