What you Need

Clothespin Fairy Craft Supplies

To make this craft you need a few simple craft supplies

You can find all of these items at your local dollar store. You may already have many of them on hand.

*TIP* Michael’s craft stores offer $4 clearance grab bags from time to time. These are a great way to stock up your craft closet. I actually got these flowers in one last year.

How to Make Flower Fairies

Artificial flower without stem

Choose a flower for your fairies skirt. Pull the flower off of the plastic stem. Remove any additional plastic so it is just the fabric petals.

Artificial flower cut open

Using your scissors cut from the center of the flower petals out. This opens up the flower to allow you to glue it on your clothespin like a skirt.

Using your hot glue gun, glue the flower around your clothes pin to form the skirt. You may have to adjust a little as you go.

The next step is to create the fairies top. I chose to use ribbon, but you could pick a decorative washi tape. There are so many fun colors and patterns to choose from in both.

Obviously if you are using ribbon you need to hot glue it on. Wrap it around the clothespin directly above the flower skirt.

Finally, you can hot glue some small flower petals onto the fairies head for a cute little hat or hair. Then take your fine tip marker and draw on two eyes or any face details you want.
