Pinecone & Acorn Forest Fairies


There’s not a lot blooming in the garden in the fall, but there are plenty of treasures to be found. You can use them to create cute little forest fairies.

Just collect some pine cones, acorns, colorful leaves, twigs and other bits from your yard or garden.

Then make your woodland people. It’s easy! 

  1. Glue an acorn to the top of a pinecone.
  2. Add some colorful leaves, dried grass, little flowers, twigs or whatever you find to create these magical little forest fairies.
  3. If you want to get fancy, you can draw faces on your fairies, and add little bits of cloth, colorful yarn or even pipe cleaner wings.

Leave your fairies in a sheltered place outside, or bring them inside and put them around the house or on a windowsill. You can also string them into a garland, glue them onto a twig wreath or even make a fairy home in a shoebox for them to live in.

Give them fairy names and make up stories about them.

They’re sure to brighten any gloomy winter day!
