Harpy or Evil Fairy Toilet Paper Roll Craft
Contributed by Leanne Guenther
This is a fun and simple color, cut and paste paper craft that uses a toilet paper roll as a base to give it a three dimensional effect.
You can use this craft as a harpy (from Greek Mythology) or as an evil fairy (from stories like Sleeping Beauty).
In Greek mythology, the harpies were winged death spirits who stole food from Phineas the prophet.
