There’s something about fairies that just absolutely captivates the imagination. Maybe it’s the promise of magic or the notion of pocket-sized winged creatures flitting about sprinkling pixie dust as they go. Whatever it is, I remember loving everything about fairies when I was little and I love them just as much now. So I thought, shouldn’t we all indulge in a little fairy love now and again? I’m talking fairy wings, fairy doors leading to the unknown, pretty little fairy slippers and magical fairy dust. Why, yes. We should all channel our inner fairy. These ideas would be perfect for Halloween, of course, but I love them even more for playing dress-up on rainy afternoons. Ready for a little magic? Here are 10 pretty fairy crafts you and the little ones will love!
