Craft ideas to inspire and try.

Fairy Ballerina

For this project you will require the following items:

  • Craft Workshop Pom Poms
  • Craft Workshop Dolly Peg (long)
  • Craft Workshop Hot Glue Gun (with glue)
  • Craft Workshop Chenille Stems (pipe cleaners)
  • Fine-tip Black Pen
  • Colouring Pens

Step 1.
Use the fine tipped black pen to draw on the ballerinas face and create small eyes, a happy mouth and finish it off with a pink pen on the cheeks for blush.
Step 2.
Now choose your ballerina’s style! Draw and colour in a hairline on her head, and then the ballet slipper straps on her legs (using the fine tipped black pen again).
Step 3.
Colour in the the top half of the ballerina’s dress, leaving a ‘V’ shaped opening at the front (as ballerina’s typically have dramatic plunging necklines).  Don’t forget her pointe (dancing) shoes!
Step 4.
Our ballerina’s tutu will be made from pom poms! Use the hot glue gun and glue to carefully attach the pom poms around the middle of the peg.
Step 5.
Twist the chenille stem (pipe cleaner) to create wings; make them whichever shape you would wish and then safely glue them onto the fairy ballerina’s back to fit. Be careful not to burn your fingers with the hot glue! Once the wings have dried, your Fairy Ballerina is ready to dance!
