Cut the stem off of one of the fake flowers. Remove the green plastic piece at the base of the flower holding the petals together.
Cut an “X” into the center of the flower piece to that it can slip onto the clothes pin.
Add several flower petals to make the fairy’s skirt and keep adding until the skirt is as full as you would like it.
Wrap washi tape around the clothes pin above the flower petals to make the fairy’s top.
Cut two or four leaves and glue them to the clothes pin to give the fairy wings.
Take a piece of the flower petal and glue it to the top of the clothes pin to make the fairy a hat.
