fairy craft items you need

For the Tiara:

Step one: take your pipe cleaners and for a child’s head, 2 should be fine. If not, measure the head to see how many you will need to connect. You will then connect them together by just twisting them as I have shown.

These would be great at themed birthday parties. You could have tables set up where guests can make their own and then take them home. Whatever you choose, have fun playing pretend and have a magical time doing so.
