In making the three good fairies from Sleeping Beauty, I was pretty sure what I wanted to do and I think they were pretty easy and turned out super cute. There are a lot of pictures and directions here, but they really aren't complicated, I promise!
I started with 3 long clay pots from a trip to the Springs to Michaels.
I painted the pots blue, green, and pink.
For each fairy's hat, I used cordinating color foam. I cut a square that measured 3 1/2 inches by 3 1/2 inches. Then I used the bottom of a Dollar Tree candlestick to make a circle for the hat.
I used the bottom of the paint bottle to make a circle in the center of the circle so it would sit flat on the wooden circle that I purchase for the fairy's head.
To make the hat cone, I cut another piece of fun foam in a 3 1/4 inch half circle. I used a large canning jar lid as my template. I placed glue along the straight edge and folded it into a cone shape.
To finish the fairy's hat, I cut a sheer piece of one inch ribbon in a 10 inch length. I centered it across the bottom ring and then glued the cone on top.
I used a large wooden ball and glued the ribbon to the bottom of the head and then glued the head onto the top of the clay pot.
For the fairy's cape, I cut a square that was 5 inches by 3 1/2 inches. Then I tapered the cape so the top was 4 inches and the bottom was 5 inches.
For the fairy's wings, I cut a heart shape out of a 3 1/2 inch square.
I placed a little bit of glue along the bottom of the heart (yea, so the pink fairy got more of an apple shape in her wing than a heart...what do you do?)
Then I held the bottom of the "heart" together to look like wings.
To finish the wings, I glued the center of the back of the heart to the center top of the fairy's cape.
Then I glued the 4 inch side of the cape to the top of the clay pot.
TADAH! 3 good fairies to protect the princess from the evil dragon!
