Paint one of the 1/2" knobs whatever color you want your fairy's shirt to be and then other knob whatever color you want the fairy's face to be. let dry. Paint the three wooden ovals whatever color you want the fairy wings to be.
Separate the flower from it's stem, you might be able to simply pop it off, but you may have to cut it. Glue the bottom of the flower (where the stem was) to the flat side of the knob you painted to be the shirt.
Cut a piece of ribbon about 10" long. Glue the center of this ribbon onto the shirt knob, opposite the flower. This will serve as the fairy's arms so you may want the ribbon color to match the shirt color.
Dab some glue onto the flat side of the head knob and glue it on top of the shirt knob, covering the ribbon. Glue one of the wooden ovals centered horizontally on to the back of the shirt bead. Glue one end of the other two wooden ovals at a 45 degree angle onto the center of the first oval. When looked at from the front, these should look like the fairy’s wings.
Place some glue on one end of the wooden skewer and poke it into the center of the flower. The other end of this skewer is what you will poke into the ground. Let the glue dry. Make your fairy some hands by slipping a pony bead onto each ribbon end and tying. Cut off any extra ribbon. Finally, you can paint a face on your fairy and add some hair.
