First paint your peg like the photos below. You could use acrylic paints, indelible pens, metallic marker pen (for laces on the ballet pumps) and glitter. Allow the peg to dry. Now make a pom pom following the instructions here Follow the tutorial to the point were the two cardboard rings are covered with wool. Take your peg and insert it into the centre of the wool covered circle. Take a pair of sharp scissors and cut through all layers of yarn between the two edges of cardboard. Ease the two discs of cardboard apart slightly, double a piece of yarn and tie between the two circles. Now gently pull away the two cardboard discs, one over the head the other over the legs of your fairy. Fluff up the pom pom, to make it secure you can glue in place on the peg. Next glue on wings, I used felt for mine sprinkled with glitter for extra sparkle. To display the fairy tie fishing line or invisible thread around the fairies neck.
