Introducing the Official Flower Fairies™️ Box Tree Fairy Needle Felt Kit by The Makerss. In this exciting partnership, The Makerss create the classic characters from Cicely Mary Barker's much loved poems. 

Created for confident crafters, these kits are built with new techniques to awaken creative flair. Delve into the world of the Flower Fairies™️ today, with the Box Tree Fairy. 

Who are The Flower Fairies™️?

Ever since their first release in 1923, the Flower Fairies by Cicely Mary Barker have captivated adults and children alike worldwide.

The detailed, accurate drawings in the 170 original illustrations, along with the charming fairy depictions inspired by real children from Cicely's sister's nursery school, awaken our inner sense of wonder and enchantment.

Each Flower Fairy was originally accompanied by a dedicated poem or verse. These tiny creatures, no more than 20cm tall, reside in the treetops, marshes, forest floors, roadsides, and gardens. Wherever and whenever a seed blooms, a new Flower Fairy is born.

Each Fairy lives and sleeps within their chosen flower, plant, or tree, growing alongside it. It is their responsibility to care for their designated flower or plant, ensuring it receives ample sunshine and water, clearing away dead leaves, and gently polishing flowers and stems.

Flower Fairies Box Tree Fairy Poem


The Box Tree Fairy

Have you seen the Box unclipped,
Never shaped and never snipped?
Often it’s a garden hedge,
Just a narrow little edge;
Or in funny shapes it’s cut,
And it’s very pretty; but—

But, unclipped, it is a tree,
Growing as it likes to be;
And it has its blossoms too;
Tiny buds, the Winter through,
Wait to open in the Spring
In a scented yellow ring.

And among its leaves there play
Little blue-tits, brisk and gay
