How to Make Fairy Houses
Step 1 – Gather materials to make DIY fairy houses.
First, go on a nature hunt for some rocks or stones that will work to make DIY fairy houses. Collect rocks or stones that sit and look like fairy houses. Choose rocks that sit nicely and look like little fairy houses. Look for squared or rounded rocks with a flat edge. Rocks that have a flat edge that they can sit upon usually make great fairy houses.
You will also need to find some tree bark, leaves, wood chips, moss or any other type of material that you can use to make a roof for a fairy house. If you can not find a natural material try some pieces of construction paper cut in odd shapes.
Step 2 – Use a paint pen to draw a door and windows on each rock fairy house.
Paint pens make it super easy to make painted rock crafts like these fairy houses. Draw a door and small windows in any shape you like. Don’t worry about making them neat, crooked windows and doors add character to each fairy house.
Step 3 – Glue the roof onto the rock to complete fairy house craft.
There is no need to create perfect painted rocks. Crooked, odd, and misshapen roofs all add to the character of each fairy house. Get creative and have fun!
