Note: I have had a few people ask why I post these as dollar store crafts and then provide affiliate links to Amazon. If you can make it to a dollar store and buy the supplies there, I absolutely suggest you do that. However, some people want or need to order these items online so I provide the links just in case you need them.
Gather all supplies. Paint the jumbo craft sticks in a variety of skin tone colored acrylic craft paints of your choice with a paintbrush.
Paint on hair styles in a variety of colors of acrylic craft paints of your choice. To finish the hair styles, add pompoms in coordinating colors to the craft sticks with a glue gun and glue sticks.
Using a paintbrush, add shoes and a bodice in pastel-colored acrylic craft paints in colors that coordinate with the silk flowers and butterflies.
Draw two eyes on the fairies’ faces, and a line to create the legs. Dip a new pencil eraser into light pink acrylic craft paint and dot on rosy cheeks.
Remove the silk butterfly and one flower from the bunch. Remove the stem and center from the flower petals. Carefully cut a slit in the center of the flower petals and slide onto the fairy body to create the skirt. Repeat with the second set of petals. Secure with a small dab of glue from a glue gun.
Cut the plastic body and antennae off the silk butterfly and attach to the back of the fairy with a glue gun and glue sticks. These become the fairies’ wings. Repeat with additional jumbo craft sticks and flowers to make as may fairies as you would like.
