Fairy Princess Wings: Make Your Own Doll Accessories

Who doesn't love fairy princess wings? I have a son. That means my home has a serious lack of pretty princess and fanciful fairies floating around. That said, I miss these “girly” playthings. I know, I know – not every girl loves princesses and fairies, but as a former little girly girl, I sort of wish that I got the chance to recreate my youth as an adult. So, in the spirit of girliness I decided to try out a fairy wing art activity.

Kids' art

This is how it goes: Your child’s (girl or boy – as boys can play with dolls too) favorite doll is in need of an imaginative makeover. Instead of dressing her up in hot pants or a faux fur coat, help your child to create her own pair of fairy wings for the doll to wear. This project started as a simple coffee filter art exploration and then moved on from there.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

·         A coffee filter

·         Food coloring

·         Water

·         A pipe cleaner

·         Optional: Craft feathers or flowers

Here’s What to Do:

1.      Drop a few drips of food coloring onto the center of a coffee filter. When your child adds a few splashes of water the color will spread like magic. Let the filter dry completely.

2.      Help your child to fold the filter accordion style. This is a great way to build her fine motor skills. Pinch the filter in the center for her.

3.      Hold the filer in its center and let you child wrap the end of a pipe cleaner around it. Leave some extra slack at the ends for later.

4.      Insert a few craft feathers (I’m somewhat obsessed with ultra-colorful craft feathers) into the back- securing them with the pipe cleaner. Your child doesn’t have to do this step, or she can create a nature fairy by adding in flowers or leaves that she collects outside.

5.      Have your child fold the extra slack at the ends of the pipe cleaner over to make arm holders. Think of this as like making backpack straps. Secure the ends underneath.

6.      Fluff the coffee filter to spread out the fairy wings.

7.      Insert the doll’s arms (you’ll need a small-sized doll) through the pipe cleaner straps. Like I said, I live in a boy house. I didn’t have a “doll” to suit up, so my son’s Lego guy (who for some reason is wearing a dinosaur suit) is now ready to take flight!
