Primary TechniqueGeneral Crafts
- Dark pink; light pink and flesh felt
- One wooden kebab skewer
- Green floral tape
- Small amount of curly blonde synthetic doll hair
- Small amount of cotton filling
- Pair of 8mm wiggle eyes
- Dark pink and black colored felt-tip pens
- 2 circles with a diameter of 6.4“ cut from soft white printed organza fabric
- 0.2” wide organza ribbon
- 3 pink skeleton leaves
- 80 mm polystyrene hand
- Acrylic paint in the following two colors: pink and pale gold
- Overlocker machine and white nylon thread
- Polystyrene glue
- Clear drying craft glue (such as Bostik Clear)
- Standard scissors
- Cut two circles with a diameter of 1.6” from the flesh felt.
- Cut 6 leaves from the dark pink felt and 6 from the light pink felt, using the pattern below.
- Glue the light pink petals around the one flesh circle, followed by the dark pink petals.
- Cut the kebab skewer to a length of 5.2” and wrap green floral tape tightly around it.
- Glue the one end of the kebab skewer to the circle with the flower petals.
- Glue a small amount of cotton filling over the circle with the flower petals.
- Glue the second flesh circle on top of the first.
- Add the hair and wiggle eyes.
- Use felt-tip pens to add the rest of the facial features.
- Use an overcast stitch to prevent the organza circles from fraying. Cut a small hole in the center of each organza circle, add a drop of glue to the skewer just below the flower and push the bottom end of the kebab skewer through the opening.
- Gather the fabric around the skewer and use the ribbon to make a bow to keep the “dress” from slipping down. Cut the ends of the bow shorter to make it neat.
- Cut one skeleton leaf in two. Glue one and a half skeleton leaf to each side at the back of the fairy to make the wings.
- Give the polystyrene hand an uneven wash with the pink paint. Allow to dry and then do the same with the pale gold paint.
- Push the bottom part of the skewer into the polystyrene hand. Add a drop of polystyrene glue and allow to dry, making sure that the fairy is standing upright.
