DIY Fairy Doll Tutorial Body Instructions
You’ll start out by making your fairy dolls body and it’s simpler than you think! The hair will be made first, then tied onto a pipe cleaner.
You’ll then add a bead for the head and begin wrapping it up.
DIY Fairy Doll Wings & Dress Instructions
Next, wrap some lovely lace around your doll for a shirt. You can also use some pretty craft petals for the skirt and add some wings.
Then, all that’s left to do is paint on the face. You can add some pretty decorative touches such as the roses above.
Here’s the finished result. You will have a collection of gorgeous fairy dolls that will bring a smile to your face every time you see them.
You can make them in so many ways too. They make lovely gifts for family and friends and they look beautiful in a child’s room too.
Traditionally, these Waldorf-style dolls have either no face or a very simple one. You can add in some extra features, or go all out with painting. It’s up to you!
