The fairy costume (14 pics)
A pair of scissors
Tissue ribbons recovered from gift wrappings or bolduc
A Chinese wand, a stake or a wooden rod
Canson A4 sheets of pink or other (or cardboard, felt, leather or suede to make a stronger star)
A slightly pink cardboard A2 sheet (or 2 A3 sheets)
We start with the baguette
Surround the decorative scotch wood rod from bottom to top.
Cut out two identical stars in the A4 colored paper or other chosen material (cardboard, felt, leather ...).
Tip +: If you have trouble drawing a star, help yourself to a coloring scheme.
Have your child decorate both stars by drawing or pasting decorations.
Cut some ribbons about 30 cm long and fix them together at one end with the decorative tape.
Tape the wand and ribbons on the inside of a star, then glue the second star on top.
The magic wand is ready to serve!
Place in the hat
Form a giant cone with the A2 sheet by wrapping it on itself.
Be careful to keep the tip tight, with just one or two millimeters of opening.
Weld the edges of the cone with the decorative tape.
Cut out the bottom of the cone so that it stands up.
Assemble some long ribbons using decorative scotch forming a small point.
Insert the ribbons through the tip at the top of the hat into the mini-hole left in the assembly.
Make a border on the bottom of the hat with decorative tape.
Drill a hole on each side of the hat.
Thread ribbons into these openings that will attach the hat to your child's head.
Let your artist decorate the hat with stickers and felts.
At the top of the hat, stick a star cardboard or felt.
Tip +: Fill the hat with newspaper to adjust to your child's size and stabilize it.
