My Little Fairy Craft

These pretty little Fairies are a simple and easy craft for kids.  They go perfect with our companion craft project, Fairy House.  We have two different Fairies to choose from in either black and white or color.  Simply print out and color the Fairies and attach them to wooden clothespins.  Make a bunch ahead of time for a fairy party and use them as place card holders at the table.  They look adorable and kids can take them home when the party is over.  And don’t forget to try our other Kidfunideas garden activities and projects. 

 

What you'll need:

  • Wooden Spring Clothespins

  • My Little Fairy Printout – Color or black and white version

  • Crayons, color pencils or markers to decorate

  • Scissors

  • Hot glue gun

  • Laminator or Clear plastic packing tape

  • Optional : Fairy House Companion Project

 

How to make it:

  1. Print out the Kidfunideas Fairy Pattern.  If you are using the black and white version, color your Fairy.  Colored pencils or fine tip markers work best because the Fairies are small.

  2. Once you have your Fairies colored, trim them out from the paper and laminate.  Trim away the excess lamination from around the Fairy.  If you are using clear plastic packing tape, apply one strip of tape to the entire front of the trimmed out Fairy. Then apply another strip of tape to the back side of the fairy and trim away the excess tape.

  3. Once you have your laminated/taped Fairy, trim the bottom of the Fairy so that there is a straight edge. 

  4. Take one of your wooden clothespins run a bead of hot glue along one flat side (adult supervision/help is advised for this step).  Attach your Fairy to the clothespin so that the feet are flush with the edge of the clothespin at the end that doesn’t open.  Try to position your Fairy so that the clothespin is hidden behind the Fairy. 

Now your Fairy can stand up.  It can also be clipped to the Fairy house, your clothes, or even mark your place in a favorite book.
