So at the Renaissance Faire there was a little area where you could make crafts. Taylor and I made fairy houses! They are so cute and so easy to make! I took pictures of Taylor making his :)
That is real moss he’s putting on the roof, and on the floor. The base is a wood round. The house is cardboard.
Oh I just love it. I put those little roses along the roof to cover up the exposed white part of the roof. I also used a little green glittery branch on the roof for some extra glam ;) There are little pink dried berries and mini pine cones!
This is what we used to make it:So the house was like a paper towel roll only wider that she cut to 5 inches tall and cut a door in it. You could use a small milk carton, you know the ones kids get from school? Like an 8 ouncer. The roof was similar cardboard material just made into a triangle shaped roof. She had a wooden round for the base with little wooden stepping stones like from a cup up stick that she glued on there.
She gave us colored dried seedpod type things to glue around the house. We used real moss for the roof and sod for the ground. Then she had various dried and colored things to glue around the house: berries, pussy willows, pinecones, bark, shells, rocks, flowers, seedpods etc. She gave us the little fairy chair that she had made it looks like an acorn thing lol and some other kind of piece of bark glued together.
We used tacky glue for everything and it all worked out well! It didn’t take me very long to make either. First glue the house to the base, then the roof to the house, then the little steps leading to the door. Then once all of that has dried apply the dried seedpods (I can’t find a picture of them but they were paper like and thin and dyed different colors) or dried petals to the house. Then glue the sod to the base around the house and the moss to the roof. After that just add all of your own bits and bobs. You don’t even have to buy anything, just go find twigs, berries, and flowers outside. Afterward she sprayed everything with glitter which was the icing on the cake! I hope if you all want to you try it! I don’t know how the real moss and sod will hold up. She said to mist it with water. I think if I make it again I will be using fake stuff LOL. All the best everyone!
