Didn’t you just love this Dreamy Lavender Woodland Fairy Party styled by the incredible Amy Liu Bissett of A Dazzle Day from earlier this week? It was such a whimsical party with so many gorgeous handcrafted elements. Her DIY Wooden Peg Fairy Dolls are surprisingly easy to make and are perfect for enchanting little party favors or as a beautiful cake topper! P.S. We’ll be sharing a few more tutorials from this party within the next few weeks- including those adorable toadstool chair cushions and elegant napkins! ;)

  • Wooden doll
  • Scissors
  • Acrylic Paints
  • Pencil
  • Glue Gun
  • Various sizes of paint brushes
  • Stencil Stamp tool
  • Silk Flowers


1. First paint the doll into the skin color of your choice, then draw her face and hair line out with pencil. Next, color her hair and dab her cheeks.

2. Paint in her hair & carefully dab cheeks! Using a small brush, carefully paint her eyes & lips.

3. Once you’re happy with your doll, spray several layers of Crystal Clear on. Let it dry overnight.

4. Start decorating your doll with beautiful flower petals to make a pretty fairy gown! (This is where your glue gun comes in handy.)

    these are adorable! I’ve seen a ton of these on Pinterest and Etsy and finally got to making some myself. They are alot of fun for kids and mostly adults! I made my son a set of superhero themed ones, but I absolutely LOVE these fairy ones so much more.

    Amy’s party and peg fairies are simply charming! I love peg dolls. I even found an easy way to give the little pixies some arms, with a little help from silk flowers, just like Amy! http://www.rookno17.com/2010/07/fairy-cupcake-topper-favor-tutorial.html

    Step 4 wasn't finished. how do you make the thing to cover her neckline? are those beads? where did that come from and how did you do it? How about the back that looks like fairy wings?

    I love the fairy dolls. What material did you use for the necklines? I am going to try a few of these for our Granddaughter.
