pompom fairy garland ... ♥

Last week my littlest little was home sick, so we pulled an all day movie marathon ...
a Tinkerbell movie marathon that is.  So after watching Frozen (a million-gazillion times) and seeing the previews for the new Tinkerbell movie, we decided to craft up some cute fairies to hang in her room in anticipation of it's release in a few weeks.

To make this garland, you'll need just a few things ...

cute yarn for pom poms - wooden peg dolls - felt - craft paint
hot glue - twine, jute or ribbon

So let's start! First get all your pieces for this craft prepared.
Paint the dolls, make lots of pom poms and cut out the wings.
My hubby used a chop saw to shorten the dolls a bit, but you can use them as is.
Just use some craft paint to paint the bodies & the hair ... 
I decided to make her look Tinkerbell-ish, 
but you could use any color paint for the hair or even some yarn.

To make the pom poms i have this handy dandy tool,  that can be found at any craft store.
To see a full tutorial on how to use the pom pom maker click over to this post.
Another way to make pom poms without the tool can be found here.

Next draw some wings onto cardstock, then trace them on the felt and cut.

Then I cut a small piece of twine, and hot glued it between the wings and the peg doll.

That's it! 
Now grab a yummy snack, put on a movie and make a bunch more!
so. much. fun.

To string them up, cut a long piece of twine 
and pull it through the loops on the back of the fairies and space them out a bit.

I had one happy little girl on my hands ... 
we love the way this turned out! Experiment with colors or even different fabrics for the wings 
... and pom poms are so simple to make even little hands can help.

Even Tinkerbell liked it.
I think.

The all-New Tinker Bell Movie, The Pirate Fairy releases April 1st
you can Own It On Blu-ray™ and Digital HD or watch the trailer & pre-order it here 

can't wait to watch it!
happy crafting!
