Paper Fairy Puppets Tutorial

Hello

As promised, I have another fun tutorial using my adult coloring page paper fairies! This one is a Paper Fairy Puppet and it is oh so cute.

 

Make this fairy puppet using printable cut and color fairies and wings. Learn how you can even add your own photo! These make great fairy birthday party favors and storytelling prompts | Fairies | Adult Coloring | Fantasy | Whimsical | Puppets | Storytelling | Imaginative Play | Paper Straws | Puppets | Coloring PagesGreat for Pinning Image Pin It Button

 

Oh, and yes, that is me featured on the puppet. My boys begged and begged for me to make myself into a fairy with wings. After I completed my Paper Fairy Mobile, I had an extra set of wings (I had planned it to have an extra), so I used the extra set with a picture of myself.

This tutorial will be pretty quick and formatted a little differently than my usual tutorials since I didn’t have too many in-process pictures to share and it is fairly simple to make. I had a chicken wire house decoration that the boys used to pretend play with the fairy, but you can use a doll house or puppet theater or even decorate boxes to create your own fairy homes!

What You Need

Paper Color, Cut, & Fold Fairies and Wings

A photo of yourself, sized to that of the fairies (optional)

Cardstock paper

Coloring mediums (pencils, markers, watercolor, nail polish…whatever you use)

Hobby knife (optional)

Hot glue and glue gun

Paper straws

 


 

Fairy Puppet Directions

1. You will first want to print the fairies and wings and your photo on cardstock paper. I took mine to an office supply store to print since my printer is acting up.

2. Use your coloring medium of choice to color in your fairies then cut them out. Cut out your picture as well, if you choose to include that. I actually used some colored pencils to add detail as my printer didn’t do a great job with this photo.
 

3. Read this post for the full assembling instructions and coloring tips for these fairies.

4. Once your fairies are assembled, hot glue one end of the paper straw to the back of your fairy. Paper straws are so much fun because they come in so many colors and patterns. Choose something that will look fabulous with your fairies!

5. Use these fairies to encourage your children to play imaginatively and see if they will throw you a puppet show with a story they make up themselves! These also make adorable party favors at a fairy-themed birthday party.

  1. I do not color, but these are so pretty the Fairy puppets and I have some really pretty Fairy paintings from an artist in my hometown that I just love. I think that this would be a fun idea to do with my daughter. She would love a Fairy puppet.

    What a cute idea! I like how you used a photo of yourself in making a fairy puppet.

  3. I did love coloring when I was young. I love the adult coloring books, would love to get some, I hear it is very relaxing. I love the fairy puppets, cute idea! 🙂

  4. Looks so pretty! I loved to color when I was a kid

  5. What an adorable idea! I’ll have to show these to my nieces. What fun!

  6. These are so cute! I bet you could make some with your kids’ faces and put around the Fairy Tooth exchange box too! I am going to have fairies all over my house 🙂

    • Thank you, Robin. Yes my kids would probably get a kick out of that. They requested Mommy for the puppet, but we stuck with one of the color-in fairies for the Tooth Exchange box 🙂

  7. Those are really cute. I also love the tooth fairy exchange box. Thanks for the great ideas!
