The summer weather is finally here in New England!
We aren’t visiting some of our favorite warm-weather places until lockdown restrictions lift a little more. But, we are getting to spend a lot of time outside.
My daughter and I collected twigs while on a walk one day and used them to create this pretty Fairy Tree.
Creating your own fairy tree is a fun and easy craft that you and your toddler can do together this summer.

How To Make A Fairy Tree
First, my daughter and I collected different size sticks from outside. It’s best to use thin twigs that are long enough to stand up in a jar or vase.
Put the sticks into a mason jar or other container. We used this glass milk bottle which was the perfect size.
Add rocks or marbles to hold the sticks in place.
Gather your supplies and start decorating!
Ideas For Decorating Your Fairy Tree
You can use anything you want that can hang or stick to the branches. I searched through all our crafts supplies and used a bunch of random items.
Here are some ideas for what to use to decorate your tree:
- Beads – Large beads with big holes can slide right onto the thinner twigs.
- Feathers – We used clothespins to clip the feathers on.
- Stickers – My daughter loved decorating the glass far with foam stickers and masking tape stickers.
- Ribbon – Tie the ribbon around the sticks or around the jar.
- Pipe Cleaners – Wrap around the sticks or tie them on.
- Clothespins – Use to attach items to the branches. You can also decorate the clothespins with stickers, paint them, or color on them.
Have fun decorating your Fairy Tree! Let me know in the comments what other materials you used for your tree.
