I saw THESE Rainbow Fairies and fell in love with them and knew we would have to make some.
If your kids want to make some here is our DIY with a few minor changes to the above mentioned tutorial.
1) First gather your supplies:
-An assortment of pinecones and acorn caps
-Medium and large wood beads for the heads
-White satin leaves for the wings
-Paint, water and small brush
-Wooden disc (real wood or store bought coins)
You will also need a hot glue gun not shown.
2) Start by painting your pine cones. It was such a beautiful Spring day we took our art outside today.
(FYI These long pine cones were very sappy and not a great choice but Aayla really wanted to use them so we made do. Other varieties of pine cones have a lot less sap, if any at all, and work much better)
