Girls love pretending to be Fairys. They can pretend to be Fairys on any day of the year, but they especially love dressing up as a Fairy on Halloween. Well, a fairy just can’t truly be a fairy without their Fairy Crown. In this post I will show you how to make a Fairy Crown for Halloween. Add this to your Fairy Skirt and Fairy Mask to have the most perfect Fairy Costume this Halloween. Or, use the Fairy Costume to play dress-up all year long. Let’s get started with the craft. NOTE: you will need a little bit of help from an adult for this tutorial.

Laura from Dacian Moon Handmade will show you, step by step, how to make this.
– 2 pieces of tulle: green and cream colored
– red beads
– needle and thread
– a piece of brown cord
– lighter and pliers or tweezers (with Adult help)
Draw 5 circles on cream tulle.
Cut them out.
Do the same with green tulle but make those circles smaller.
This is the step where you need help. Fold a circle in quarter
… hold it with pliers and burn it a very little on the edges…. enough to wrinkle a bit. (Must Have Adult Help.) It is a very quick move with the lighter.
Do the same for all the circles. If you skip this step, the circles will remain flat.
Set the pattern and make a mark where you should have the first circle (flower).
Using needle and thread sew the end of the ribbon…
… twist the ribbon…
… and sew it loose.
It will look like this.
When you reach the marker, put a white circle on the needle…
… then a red bead …
and sew it to the spot.
Continue twisting the ribbon and sewing it loose, then add a green circle with a red bead… and so on.
Take the brown cord and put it through the tube of ribbon, under the first stitch.
Let enough cord free and make a knot.
This will keep the cord in place.
Begin to wrap loosely around the necklace…
… along with flowers, like this.
When you reach the other end pass the cord through the ribbon tube again.
The crown will be tied at the back…
… and it is ready to complete your Fairy costume.
