Okay lets make that liitle house that sits under the thatched fairy roof.
The Bricks and Mortar – Erm I Mean Wood
For the little fairy home I used a few scraps of wood.
They were all covered in 3D contour paste to make it look like they had been plastered.
That gorgeous brick work is courtesy of our sponsors Sizzix. We used the same Tim Holtz Mixed Media die when we made the fairy toadstool a few months ago. It’s one of my favorite dies for adding that special touch to a fairy home.
Other Little Fairy Touches
The front door and trap door are both made from ice cream sticks, that were cut to size and stained. The door handles are small pieces of leather that have been glued on and the hinges are shell shaped beads.
A small little bucket that’s been made from a tin can and filled with a few twigs completes the picture. Here’s a handy hint when making fairy homes. You can find the most amazing accessories in bead shops. That tiny ax is a cheap plastic bracelet charm. I think I bought a pack of 4 for about R 5.00.
I would love to know what you think of the idea of recycling an old lamp shade for a fairy roof. Is it something you would try?
