Fairy Tree Ornament
Kaycee’s using our fairy tree ornament as the tree topper on her mini Christmas tree. Ella wanted one for hers so her daddy made her one. He used pom-poms for the face instead of card. Ella LOVEs it! 🙂
You will need:
- Paper or card
- String or ribbon
- A mug
- Gold or silver pen
Draw around the mug and cut out the circle
Cut the circle in half
Using one-half of the circle, cut out 2 arm shapes
Decorate the sleeves
Cut out 2 hands and glue on to the sleeves
The other half of the circle is for the fairy’s dress. Decorate it to match the sleeves.
Fold the dress semi-circle into a cone shape and stick with glue or tape
Make the head
Cut a small circle for the head then use it to draw hair on one-half of a folded piece of card. Fold the card and cut out the hair. Use this piece to draw around and cut out another shape.
Stick the face on to one of the hair pieces.
Use a folded piece of card to draw the wings on one-half next to the fold. Cut the wings out.
Cut a piece of string or ribbon that’s long enough to thread through the dress, have enough hanging at the bottom to make legs and enough at the top to attach the head too. Make a knot about 2 thirds down which will hold the dress in place and stop it sliding off.
Thread the string through the dress
To attach the head, first stick the piece of hair without the face, on to the string then stick the piece with the face, to the front of the hair, making sure the string is in the middle of the 2 pieces.
Stick the wings and arms to the dress and thread some beads onto the string for the feet
Hang on the tree or use as a tree topper like Kaycee has done on her mini Christmas tree!
On day 17 we’ll be making a hand wreath using Christmas backing papers.
