How To Make A Fairy Garland
This fairy garland is a lot of fun to make! If you are missing an item, no problem, just improvise. Craft paper could make lovely wings or fabric as a dress. Half the fun is being creative.
Starting with a popsicle stick draw on the legs with a sharpie pen. At the bottom add some washi tape feet and remark with the sharpie.
Twist a pipe cleaner around the center of the popsicle stick and bend wings into shape.
Draw on face and neck above the wings but leaving space at the top of the popsicle stick. A circle, two eyes, and a smile and hair if desired.
Glue on a craft butterfly or other decoration above the face.
Carefully cut a silt in the center of the cupcake case. Insert the craft stick feet first and bring up to the pipe cleaner wings/ body.
Tie a length of yarn onto each of the fairies. We tied it about the pipe cleaner, knotted at the back and threaded through the wings.
