I started creating flower fairies last year for my daughter’s lily pots and they are always so much fun to make! I love the idea of up-cycling silk flowers and little dolls I rescue from the thrift shops. Each celebration dinner, I create a unique fairy using a flower that represents the season and this Easter I used the Starburst Lily.
There are no rules here – just deconstruct the flowers and play around until you come up with something you like.
With this fairy – I removed her head and clipped off the base of one lily – I placed it upside down over her neck, added a smaller white daisy for a collar and then replaced her head. Using the glue gun, I added some wings and glitter and little silk flower for a hat.
Add a 12″ stick to your Fairies and insert them into the lily pot!
Here are some of my past flower pot fairy creations. If you love fairies – these are easy and fun to make!
Have A Fairy Happy Easter!

This beautiful little fairy is a great addition to any flower-pot! This past Easter, I wanted to come up with a special gift for my daughter who is both hosting an Easter brunch and just happens to be a fan of Lilies and Fairies. Using a silk lily and 5 ” plastic doll from the re-use center, I was able to come up with a fun, easy project that makes a great addition to an Easter flower arrangement!
I deconstructed the lily and stitched two of the smaller petals to the back of a larger one to make the wings. I then took the head and arms from the 5″ doll and attached them with hot glue. The crown is an old piece of plastic flowers, I added jewels for a bit of bling on her fairy crown. I debated adding sparkles to the wings or body but there is something so appealing in its simplicity that I remain undecided. I added a stick to the pot of lilies and placed my Lily Fairy on to it and my Easter gift to my lovely daughter is ready to go!
Happy Easter Crafting!
