Instructions: How to make your Autumn Fall Fairy Craft
Print out the PDF templates (free download available at the end of this blog post)
Cut out the pieces for our fairy craft from cardstock paper using the PDF templates.
For younger children and toddlers, print and cut everything before hand so they can get started straight away.
For slightly older kids, they can use this as an opportunity to work on their cutting skills. Using scissors is a great fine motor work out! Depending on your child’s level, you could have your preschooler cut out the easier shapes like the big rectangle with straight lines, and help them out with the slightly trickier ones.
Take the long rectangular paper, and fold it into accordion folds. This is another step that’s great fine motor practice for little hands.
Next, take the front hair (fringes) and glue it on the top front of the fairy’s head using the pieces that you have cut out in step 1.
Next, glue the back of the hair behind the head so that the fairy’s hair flows down behind her
Then, glue the top part of the fairy’s dress’s on top of her body.
Now you are ready to glue the accordion folded skirt on the bottom, and you can see the Autumn fairy paper craft is starting to shape up really well.
Then, you will need to glue the fairy’s hands and legs on to her body.
After that, you’re ready to join the fairy’s wings on to her back using glue. A simple glue stick like pritt-stick will work great for this craft, or if you prefer you can use a white glue like PVA glue, and a glue spreader.
Once, you’ve added the fairy wings, glue on the eyes and use marker pens to draw the face on the fairy. Kids can use their creativity to make her pretty face exactly how they would like it. Add a nice smile, and some rosy cheeks.
Next, take the leaf crown and start glueing each of the leaves on to the crown strip.
Finish glueing all the leaves to complete your fairy craft.
Isn’t she cute? This fairy is perfect to fly around the woodlands during Autumn, or to attend the fairy kingdom Harvest festival party. The limit is your child’s imagination.
You could make a few different fairies together, adding details like glitter or sequins to make each one different. Or use our black and white template to change up the colours and patterns for your fairy outfits.
Colours like green, yellow, plum, and gold also work really well for a fall fairy vibe.
Make a few of the fall fairies and string them together to create a garland decoration. Sometimes we need a little extra something to dress up our homes and make them feel festive for the season.
This is especially true at the end of summer, when we’re all ready for fall and looking to welcome it with open arms. The best way to do this? With cute crafts, of course! And paper crafts are one of the easiest and most convenient craft ideas to make with the kids.
