Flower Fairies 101

Being a fairy has never been easier! Take a peek at these beautiful, fancy fairy costumes, all from Etsy shops. They range from pretty & simple (the lovely yellow set shown below is only $15 from TitanPearls), to elaborate-lush (the pink tutu is from HannahsTutus, $58, with accessories sold separately; and the gorgeously detailed violet-purple ensemble is from petiecat, $85... and worth every girly penny!)

Can't be a fairy without a wand, right? There are lots of ready-to-wave wands with sparkle, flowers, & feathers to choose from... and here's a delightfully understated, naturey willow one from wove (handmade, and only $3 each!)

Feeling creative? Instead of buying your preschooler a fairy costume, why not make one yourself? Musician/Renaissance woman Emilie Autumn has an excellent, step-by-step fairy wing tutorial on youtube.

Handmade costume items like these make fun, heartfelt, memory-making gifts, and anything nature-themed will likely get your little ones outside exploring with their eyes, ears, hands... and imaginations :)
