A few years ago, in the fall, our family was on a hike in the woods when we stumbled onto fairy houses, decorated with swings, gardens, tables, plates, and so much more.  The houses were there, ready for the fairy’s arrival. They were everywhere… in the hollowed-out stumps of trees, at the bottom of trees, on top of logs, along the river bank… That hike was so much fun.  That was the day our fairy house building began.

Here is a tutorial on making little flower fairies for your yard, paths, and woods!:

You’ll Need:
  • Wooden bead for the head
  • Pipe Cleaner
  • Floss for the hair – An assortment of colors
  • Sharpies – I used blue and red
  • Girl Fairy – An Artificial Flower for the skirt
  • Boy Fairy –  Artificial Leaves
  • Scissors
  • Hot Glue or Fabri-Tac glue

 

Now, Here’s What You’ll Need To Do:

  • Cut a piece of your pipe cleaner/chenille strip to use as arms – about 3 inches
  • Cut a piece of  floss – about 3 ft. to use as hair
  • Wrap the  floss around your about 4 fingers – or a round object to make a long loop of floss
  • With your long piece of pipe cleaner/chenille strip, center it and bend it over the loop of floss. Twist the pipe cleaner to secure it
  • Pull the bent piece of pipe cleaner – with hair through the wooden bead, so the hair is just above the bead. Cut in the center of the loops to let the hair flow down.
  • Wrap the small piece of pipe cleaner just under the wooden bead/face and twist to secure for arms

Girl:

  • Slide the pipe cleaner through the center of the artificial flower and glue to secure
  • Add facial features with Sharpies

Optional Wings:

  • Use a mini clothespin to clip a smaller simple flower to her back as wings

For the boy: 

  • Make the hair a little shorter than the girls, and let it stick out all over the place
  • Instead of a flower, use a leaf as clothes, and 2 leaves in the back as wings!
