How to make an autumn leaf fairy
🍁First, download and print the template. The shape is in two sizes, so cut the one that suits you best. Draw the template on the color cardboard and cut out again.
🍁Then prepare the leaf for the hair. It should be a little bigger than the head. Sketch the shape of the fringe at the top of the leaf and gently cut or puncture it with a pencil.
🍁Now, insert the fairy’s head into the leaf gap so that the fringe of the leaf slides over the forehead. This is also a good time to draw the fairy’s face.
🍁The next step is to prepare the dress. It can be done in many ways. The daughter decided to do with a fitted top, so she traced the template on the leaf and cut it out. The bottom of the dress is another leaf glued on the waist.
🍁If you choose a fairy with wings, you will need two narrow leaves. You can paint them with white hearts imitating the veins on the wings.
🍁All elements should be glued to the cardboard.
Autumn leaf fairy is ready 🧚♂️🍂

Nothing gives more satisfaction than doing something yourself. I haven’t even thought about DIY as my hobby, I’ve just done different “projects” when it was needed. Sometimes it’s a disguise for the Masquerade Party in kindergarten. Another time, cutting out the pumpkin and baking the witch’s fingers for Haloween. Or simply organizing holiday souvenirs. Now I decided to share my realizations with you. Let’s go it together!
