Make flower fairy dolls using wooden clothespins and artificial flowers. So easy but so fun! And your kids will love playing with the fairies after they make them.
How to Make Flower Fairy Dolls
- Wood clothespins
- Sharpie marker
- Artificial flowers
- Hot glue gun
- Fabric tape (optional)
- Air dry clay (optional)
- Give your fairy a face and hair
Draw a face and hair on your clothespin with a marker.
- Add a skirt
Cut a hole in the center of an artificial flower, so that you can slip it over the doll as a skirt.
Artificial flowers are great for this because they have structure to hold their shape. And because the edges are finished and won’t fray. No need to sew.
Add a ring of hot glue at the waist then slip the skirt up (or down) so the “waistband” connects with the glue.
You can add additional flower petal layers, either the entire flower petals or cut off individual petals or parts of petals, to design your flower fairy clothes as you like.
- Add a bodice
Then add a bodice to your flower fairy’s dress. You can do this with a flower petal (or section of a flower petal) wrapped around the torso and secured with hot glue or with fabric tape.
- Add wings to your fairy
Glue flower petals wings on to the back of the flower fairies.
- Add details
If you’d like, you can add a flower headdress, crown, hat, or hair by gluing small flowers to the head. Or beads, sequins, stamens from your artificial flowers, etc.
- Optional: make a stand for your fairy
If you want your flower fairies to stand up, you can make stands for them with air dry clay. Simply roll a one-inch ball of air dry clay, smush it slightly, and press the fairies feet firmly into the clay. Let dry for a day or two.
Now you’re ready to play with your new flower fairy dolls!
