Easy Spring Craft: Make a Mushroom Fairy Circle

When my daughter was younger she was obsessed with fairies.  She watched Tinkerbell, read fairy books and even made a tiny fairy bed to keep on her nightstand in case the fairies wanted to come visit her at night.  I guess she was hoping they would get tired and decide to take a nap with her! This easy spring craft is a great way to use up all those empty toilet paper rolls I know you are stashing in your art closet.  You can find decorative muffin papers at most craft stores and other than a bit of paint, that is all you really need.  In real life, a fairy circle is a ring of mushrooms that occurs naturally in woodsy or forested areas.  Mythological history says they are gateways into elfin kingdoms.  According to wikipedia: A fairy ring appears when a fairy, pixie, or elf appears. It will disappear without a trace in less than five days, but if an observer waits for the elf to return to the ring, he or she may be able to capture it.

Easy Spring Craft: A Fairy Circle!

Easy Spring Craft

 

 

Materials:

Toilet paper tubes
scissors
assorted paints
paintbrushes
newspaper
paper muffin cups in assorted colors
hole punch

Directions:

1.  Using scissors, cut your paper tubes to the desired heights.
2.  Lay down some newspaper to prevent messes. Paint each tube with a variety of paint colors.  Let dry and do a second coat if desired.
3.  Using the hole punch, cut holes scattered around the muffin cups.
4.  When the paint is dry, set up the tubes wherever you would like your fairy garden to be located
5.  Place 2 different muffin cups on top of each one, staggering the holes so the bottom cup shows through a bit

You can add some fake moss from the craft store and a tiny fairy figurine for decor if you like!  This is an easy spring craft for kids to do with very little supervision.

  Do you believe in fairies?  What sort of easy spring crafts are YOUR kids planning?

  2. We are big believers in fairies and I absolutely LOVE your Mushroom Fairy Circle craft project! I am definitely going to make one with my daughter, possibly this weekend. Although it's Spring, we are expecting winter weather and will be stuck inside so this will be the perfect project for us to do during rainy/cold/snowy weather! Would love a visit from the Fairy Hobmother :) a Fairy visit would help brighten up our snowy Spring day :) http://www.adventuresnabbyland.com

    I believe in Fairies :) Since I had my little girl :) She loves fairies and gave her dummy to the fairy babies and always asked me why they needed it, I say because the baby fairies need to dummy and when they are bigger they will come and check on you! This is a fantastic idea Thank you!
