how to build fairy houses!

fairies are wonderful, magical creatures that live in the corners of gardens, under the roots of trees and through-out the woods. they rarely come out when us humans are around, but many children have shared stories of sightings.

there is no right way to build a fairy’s all about exploring the land and environment surrounding you, using interesting pieces of nature to build the fairies safe, cozy places to rest. it is vital to remember not to kill anything living when making a fairy house; so do not break branches off of living trees or tear living moss from a rock. use items that are already dead.

    Oh I am so in love with these! I have been putting aside bits and bobs for a fairy and/or gnome house to be created on a wonderfully mossy stump in the woods behind our house. These pictures make me want to run outside right now and get started. Unfortunately it’s “mosquito season” for the next couple of weeks so our little project will have to wait.

    Charming! My teen daughter builds little houses in my garden, but nothing as detailed as these. I’ll have to show her this for inspiration.
