I am afraid this is one those “inspiration” posts today, as these seriously wonderful CRAFT STICK Fairy Doors, do not come with instructions. But I HAD to share them with you, as I think they are simply the most wonderful thing EVER and I so want to make a set for our garden. I know that when my kids see these, they will be digging out the craft sticks and will be making their very own craft stick fairy doors. My daughter, would delight in also placing these fairy doors in the park for people to find! Read more and see more Ana The Mum!

This Rapunzel looking art and craft is another one that uses spoons, and how great is that,
since it’s a material we’ve all had in our house at some time or another. It’s a great way to
reuse old plastic and Easy Crafts For Kids has all the instructions on how to make this cute

Flower Petal Fairies
Check out these adorable little Flower Fairies. These are honestly the sweetest Flower Girl Fairies we’ve seen, and really such a lovely thing to do – wouldn’t this be such a lovely party idea too – Fairies and Pixies made from foliage – we’re smitten 🙂 Aren’t they adorable? These would make wonderful greeting cards or wall art. More info over at Artful Adventures
We love crafting and working with pressed flowers (read some great tips of pressing flowers here) at the best of times and are always on the look out for great ideas and I think these “dress up” fairies are just such an example. We are loving fairy crafts actually, and have found a little pine cone craft you’ll like too – click here for that one.
Fairy Luminaries DIY
At this time of year, there are many WONDERFUL DIY Luminary ideas going around. There are luminaries and lanterns to suit every taste and home and background. Winter Luminaries, Doily Luminaries, child made luminaries… I thought I had seen (and shared) them all. But oh no!!!! Just take a look at this simply DARLING Fairy Luminary DIY! Aren’t they simply too precious? Actually, they make me want to reach out, open the top and let the fairies escape. Clearly these Fairy Lanterns are strictly “no touch” for the kids! How very very magical. This Fairy Crafty would be **adorable* at a Fairy Party or a Garden Party in the summer too. But are simply perfect at this time of year, when we need to brighten up the gloomy winter days! Visit Nicola Battilana for the full details!
Pinecone Rainbow Fairies
Turn pine cones into a set of rainbow fairies! Aren’t they totally adorable? Pine Cone Rainbow Fairy Crafts for the win! We love pine cones in our house, there is something irresistibly quirky and tactile about them and yet they are always a little awkward to craft with. So I am always on the look out for new and wonderful pine cone crafts! I love how pretty and colourful these pine cone fairies are (I find all rainbow things gorgeous…).
Collecting pine cones on a country stroll can make even the most reluctant walker excited about the prospect – we call it ‘going on an adventure’ – makes it much more fun! Get out there in the countryside – you will ALL feel better about yourselves, and oh, perfect for collecting FREE craft materials too! But even if you were only to make one of these (and left the pine cone plain), I think these little fairies are darling!
POP UP Fairy Dolls
Here we have princesses in their castles – wouldn’t this be fun to turn them into a Rapunzel Craft, in fact – a perfect Pop Up Toy right: Princess Castles? And whenever there are shouts for “Let down your long hair”… you can pop your Rapunzel up? Or just make your princess in her castle and make up your very own fairy stories. This is a super child friendly Pop Up Toys craft too – let your child lead with the decorations and details. So sweet. So fun.
I think this would be a fantastic party craft idea too! Check out the fabulos instructions over at ikat Bag!
