Magical paper cone Fairies
I’m back again with yet another fun paper cone craft! If you think i’m running out of these then you’re wrong, We’ve come up with enough designs today to go on for a week. I wanted to share these magical paper cone fairies tonight though as this is the very first fairy craft i have ever uploaded! I must say, i think they are pretty cute too. The main reason that i love making these paper cone crafts so much is because the only material you really need is thick paper or some card – which is perfect for keeping little ones entertained when crafting resources are running low!
You will need
- Coloured thick craft paper or card
- Sticker eyes (optional)
To make the dress
Take a coloured piece of A4 paper and fold it in half to make a card shape. Then, take a pencil and draw a gradual curve starting from just above the centre of your fold line to the bottom right corner (you’ll need to make sure the curve isn’t too sharp or it won’t match up when folded). Cut out your shape.
Fold your shape in half and trim off any excess to make sure both sides are even.
Open up your shape to reveal your 4 sections Cover one of your end sections in glue..
and then pull it round and stick it down on the back of your other end section to create a triangular cone.
To make the head, wings and arms.
To make the wings chose a colour paper and fold it in half. Using the fold as the centre cut out a wing shape and then open it back up to give you two wings as you can see above. Glue them centrally across one of your triangles, this will be her back.
Now to make the head! Cut out a round circle for the face and a slightly wider arch to make the hair. Glue the face down onto the hair. Cut out a section from the hair to make the neck and then trim the hair into your chosen shape.
Give your fairy a mouth and two eyes. We used eye stickers but you can simply draw them on or cut out two white eyes and draw the details on to them before gluing them down.
To make the arms cut out two rounded strips
. To make your wand, cut out a small strip of card for the handle and a magic star to go on top. Glue the two pieces together. Then, take one end of one of your arms and fold it inwards, glue your wand in place on this folded section like you can see in the picture above.
Use a dab of glue and pinch the top of the cone so that its flat to attach the head to the body. Glue an arm on the triangle either side of the head and your magical fairy is finished! Don’t they look fab!
