We hope you enjoy these cool crafts for girls. We made this clothespin princess craft and clothespin fairy princess craft at home with our daughters, and they loved making them. These crafts for girls are fun, easy and affordable to make. It is great to make a bunch as kids will love playing dolls with them.
For these crafts, first draw on princess or fairy princess face with a permanent marker on the round part of the clothespin. Make sure you have the face facing out with opening of clothespin as in photo. The clothespin will look like legs and feet if you make sure to have it turned this way. Markers can bleed so try and find a thin one to use. It is good to do this part first because if you mees up then you have not already created the entire outfit on the clothespin.
For the slippers simply add a thick line of color around the bottom of each clothespin.
For long flowing princess hair glue on strips of yarn to the top of the head. For shorter fairy princess hairdos you can simply draw on hair with permanent marker for this craft for girls.
If making the fairy princess craft you will need to do this extra step. Loop a sparkly pipecleaner around the top to middle of your clothespin. Then shape the pipecleaner into wings by rolling up each end into a mini spiral as in the photo.
Draw a heart on for the top of the dress if making the fairy princess craft.
Next glue on pom poms to lower middle of clothespin to create a fun fairy skirt. You need to hold each pom in place for a bit to make sure it really is secure. You can glue a bead on top of your ballerinas hat to give her a little crown.
If making the princess craft glue a small piece of fabric onto the clothespin. It should be long enough that it looks like a gown. Make sure to wrap it around once. Use glue on clothespin and on fabric. Tie a yarn bow for extra decoration and also to help it stay on.
