Christmas Crafternoon: Snow Fairy Garland

DIY

‘Tis the season for sitting by the fire with a big, steaming mug of hot cocoa, listening to your favorite holiday songs and crafting away with friends and family.

For our first holiday craft of the season, we took inspiration from the latest incarnation of our famous fairy, Snow Fairy Sparkle shimmer bar. Her adorable shape and shimmer make her the perfect muse for a holiday garland to adorn our windows at LUSH HQ. This craft is easy, delightful and a great way to repurpose those leftover pieces of gift-wrap that don’t seem to fit anything!

Materials Needed:
- 1-2 sheets of recycled wrapping paper (preferably pink!)
- 4-6 feet of silver twine - Silver bells (one to sit between every paper fairy)
- A printed, cutout template of Snow Fairy Sparkle

Instructions:

1) Print the Snow Fairy template shape from this blog post. Cut the outline and wings of your template.

2) Using a paper or butterfly clip, pin your template to the far upper left corner of your paper.

3) Cut your paper into long, rectangular strips so it can easily accommodate the height of your template.

4) Fold the paper strip “accordion” style, so the template sits comfortably on top of the first fold. Adjust your butterfly clip so it pins all the layers together.

5) Using scissors or an exacto knife (for adults only!), cut out the oval shapes and around the outline. Be careful to leave a small section of the fold intact on both sides! You want your fairies to remain holding hands.

6) Unfold your garland. Take your silver string and loop it through the fairies’ wings, placing a bell in-between each one as you go. Tip: tie a knot on either side of each bell to keep them from sliding.

7) Wrap your adorable Snow Fairy garland around your Christmas tree, fireplace mantle or over a doorway to spread the holiday cheer!
