Here is a project that was started over 5 years ago, and somehow it got pushed to the very back of the garden shelf in the garage and promptly got forgotten about!
When it was finally discovered it got moved to the basement work shelf and promptly got forgot about again! But while rooting around for something else I discovered this long forgotten project and decided to bring it up into the Dabbling Room and work on it. I also found an old rock house that I had been working on and moved it upstairs too. I’ll be sharing that soon.
Some clay pots were painted yellow, a door was made from popsicle sticks, and some mauve trim was added. This is how far I got several years ago so it didn’t take a lot to complete this garden whimsy project.
Around the bottom of the fairy house I glued some nice, small, flat stones collected on one of our trips to the beach. The top pot had some “shingles” added to become the roof.
Details were added, some with paint and some with permanent marker.
After all the details were added and it was dry I added a coat of waterproof Mod Podge. In the spring I will spray it with a sealer before it goes into the garden.
I hope the garden fairies like their new home.
Who lives here? shows some other fairy houses.
