Clothespin Flower Fairy Craft

You will love creating these cute little fairy dolls out of silk flowers and wooden clothespins.

Make this cute fairy craft with silk flowers and wooden doll clothespins.

One of my sweet readers, Twila W., sent me the idea for this craft. Thanks, Twila! They were so, so fun to make! 

These miniature flower fairies made from wooden clothespins are one of the most fun crafts I have ever done. I really enjoyed the creative process and watching each fairy's personality come to life as I added each piece. It was an easy craft that just let me have a happy, creative moment. I loved it!

To make your own flower fairies, you will need: (affiliate links)

Materials needed to make a flower fairy craft

assorted silk flowers
- silk rose petals
mini leaves
wooden doll clothespins
doll clothespin stands
fabric tape
- hot glue and glue sticks
- scissors
- q-tips
- black Sharpie marker
- pink chalk or oil pastel

Begin by separating the flowers from the stems and centers. It's easy... just pull firmly and the pieces will come apart.

Next, add slits to the center hole until it is big enough to fit around the clothespins.

Cut the center of the faux flower.

Slide the flower onto the clothespin and secure with hot glue.

Add a daisy flower skirt to a wooden doll peg

Add a "belt" of fabric tape to cover the top edges of the flower.

Add rose petal wings with hot glue.

 I found that one single hydrangea blossom made a perfect hat.

Use a Sharpie marker to add eyes. Rub the end of a q-tip on some pink chalk, then dab a bit of "blush" on the cheeks.

And that's all it takes to make these cute, cute fairies! I kind of went crazy and made a bunch. This one has leafy wings and a fuller daisy skirt:

I made the next fairy's princess hat with a rolled up flower petal and her skirt is made of layered rose petals.

 The purple fairy has a daisy sunhat and a rose leaf skirt.

The white fairy's rose petal skirt is my favorite! I folded rose petals over for her wings and added blue daisies folded around them for a little splash of color.

I just love how each fairy is different and unique and full of personality. 

I lined them all up on my craft room windowsill and just seeing them there makes me smile.

My kids also loved this craft. They were able to do the craft all by themselves with just a bit of supervision with the hot glue. If you're looking for a craft for kids, I'd say this would definitely go over well.
