 Flower Fairy Tutorial 
You will need the following materials to make ONE fairy:1
½”
wooden bead (approx. 12 mm)1 12
” thi
n pipe cleaner, skin tone of your choosing2-4 silk flower petals 2 ½ - 3
in diameter in complimentary colors (bottom row)1 silk flower, 1
½” in diameter with four petals, or one two
-petaled hydrangea segment (top row)Wire cutters or large nail clipperHot glue gun or quick drying craft glueCraft glueSmall Paint brushUltrafine glitterColored pencils, pink and black
Top row: good for bodice Bottom row: good for skirts 
 
 PART 1: MAKE THE FAIRY BODY
Use your wire cutter or nail clipper to cut one 7
segment (for the frame) and one 3
segment (for thearms) from the pipe cleaner. Bend a small loop on each end of the 3
wire to form little hand buds. Foldthe 7
wire in half (it should look somewhat like a hairpin):Now, lay the arm piece on top of the hairpin piece, about
½”
down from the top (fig. 1). Fold the topbend of the hairpin piece down over the arms (fig. 2). Wrap back up through the legs to return to thetop (fig. 3):Your fairy body has been built. Now, a few adjustments:1.
 
Pinch the
“waist” tight
to make way for the dainty skirts to follow.2.
 
Use your clippers to cut the looped
head
in two from the top. Then, remove one of the stalksby clipping close to the base. The remaining stalk is where you
ll attach the head later.

PART 2: DRESS THE FAIRY
You will now be layering the fairy
s skirt by adding the silk flowers, one at a time. Start by threading the
legs
through the hole in the center of your smallest skirt flower. Push the flower up to about
½”
fromthe arms, to create a midriff. Continue to thread flowers until you
re satisfied with the look. Use a dabof hot or craft glue under and above the
skirt
where the petal meets the pipe cleaner to help keep thefrock together.Now you
re ready for the bodice. Take your 1
½”
four petaled flower, or your two petaled hydrangeasegment and put it over the neck stem, through the hole in the center of the flower. Using your glue,fasten the front petal to the pipe cleaner frame. Do likewise with the back petal. The hydrangeasegment will give you a
sleeveless
look. For the four petaled flower, use a small dab of glue to pinchthe side petals over each of the arms to form a sleeve.
