If you’re a crafter like me or simply looking for a weekend activity to occupy your kids, these vintage inspired fairy ornaments are the perfect Holiday DIY project.
This craft is intended for older children. I thought it would be a great idea to do with my 3 and 1 year old. Let’s just say it did not turn out well. But hey, they had fun making a mess and being creative so that’s all that matters!
To make things simple, I bought everything besides the clothes pins from Hobby Lobby.
I found the clothes pins on amazon here.
Paint hair - I chose to keep it simple and make the hair kind of blockish (whatever color you want). I think this gives them an antique look.
Paint eyes and mouth - do not stress about it being perfect. I also made rosie cheeks.
Paint a shirt - I rounded the edges trying to create shoulders.
Let dry for 10 mins
Cut out the wings using felt - I made a heart and cut around that, then flipped them over so you don’t see the black lines. I then glued the wings to the fairy’s back.
Cut tips off feathers - this makes gluing them easier and glue feathers creating a waist on your fairy.
