Make Your Own Fairy Puppets!

I released my fairy doll pattern last week, and I've been so overwhelmed by the response.  I really appreciate all the kind words and comments from everyone (and those of you who bought my pattern too!  Thank you so much!!!).  You really all are the best, and I'm so happy that you like my work.   

I really want to say a huge THANK YOU! Today I've got a fun treat to share with you all. It's a free template to make a fairy puppet (you can find the image at the bottom of this post).  Some of you might remember the ballerina puppet that I made a while back:  

This fairy puppet is very similar to the ballerina one, but I think I like this fairy one a little bit better. When I made the ballerina puppet a few months back, I was shocked how much my kids liked to play with it!  I figured they would like it for an afternoon and that would be it, but they played with it for months!  I hope that your kids like this fairy puppet just as well!  My kids are super obsessed with fairies right now.

Alright, let's get started!  Are you ready to make your own fairy puppet?  

What you'll need:

The fairy template at the bottom of this post , 8.5 x 11 inch  cardstock
brad fasteners (8 per fairy)
A dowel or pencil for the "handle"
Something to color your fairy in with

Alright, print out your fairy and grab your markers and colored pencils:

Cut out your pieces:
 Use the brads to attach the arms and the legs:

 Now your puppet is all put together and it's time to add the skirt.
 I just added glue to the upper edge of the skirt and attached it to the main body part of the fairy.

 You can use a piece of tape to attach a dowel to the back if you'd like too.  All finished!

Here's the template!

  1. Jill these are so sweet -- My niece will love making these.

  2. Again, I want to say I love that you offer this...what great marionette/stick puppets! Thank you so much for making it so easy to copy and paste these fairy dolls into my word program where I can make them a little larger. Would you happen to have a boy fairy? It is so hard to find boy dolls/fairies. Thank you for making these "line drawings", because I simply cannot afford to buy color ink for my printer. What a Blessing you have been to this very-limited-income granny. I plan on printing on cardstock and letting the grandbabies embellish them with glitter, sequins, bits of tulle and fabric, well, you get the idea. I might run a strip of cereal box cardboard up the back to strengthen the fairies for one of my more creative grandbabies. Black and white line-drawings, easy to copy and paste into my word program to modify sizes, hair can be easily modified when they or I are cutting them out,and more, all generously provided by you free-of-charge. Thank you for sharing your amazing talent. Blessings to you and yours from Port Huron, Michigan, USA.

    1. Hi Susie, no, I don't have a boy fairy right now, unfortunately. I will keep that in mind though next time I make more puppets (I don't have any plans for them right now, but maybe later!) Thanks again for all of your kind words!

    2. I have a boy one now! You can find it here: http://www.snugglebuguniversity.com/2016/07/a-new-boy-fairyelf-puppet-free-printable.html
