DIY Bird House to Fairy House Tutorial from Crafts by Amanda here. These bird houses/feeders are so cheap at Michaels. This has some clever details and the tutorial is extremely detailed (down to the paint colors). First seen at Craft Gossip here. *If you want to see truly amazing artistic fairy houses that were photographed (by Sally J. Smith) go here and here. If you want to make fairy slippers go here, or maybe Fairy Doors that act as bookends? createartandriot had a really good idea for that here. Or maybe you want a sign warning against them (think True Blood) then go here.
I bought unfinished wood book ends today at Hobby Lobby to decorate. Books take you to places you might not ever get a chance to go to in real life. I want my bookshelf to reflect that.
Truebluemeandyou: Love this idea and didn’t even know craft stores had these. I’ve seen these finished “fairy doors” on Etsy. You can see how createartandriot finished one of the book ends here: createartandriot.tumblr.com/post/17086700352/i-finished-one-of-the-fairy-door-book-ends and go here for more info on where to buy them at Hobby Lobby.
DIY Fairy Slippers. Have your child help pick out fake flowers, glitter, leaves, etc… from The Dollar Store of Michaels to transform a pair of shoes that will be outgrown by the next season. Tutorial from the nature of grace here.
DIY Dollar Store Evil Fairies. Didn’t I warn you all about some fairies being evil here (especially after watching the season opener of True Blood!). One of my new favorite sites found “Fairy Friend” dolls at the dollar store and transformed them with this tutorial at Design DNA here. Close up pictures are more disturbing in a - you did what to that sweet fairy? Turned her into an evil zombie. Oh, it’s Halloween - it’s fine!
truebluemeandyou: Reblogging because I know now that Fairies aren’t as sweet and innocent as they seem from a reliable source… True Blood.
Warning Don’t Piss Off The Fairies available at Amazon here. Especially after watching True Blood on Sunday.
Hazel Leaf Faerie House by Sally J. Smith. A faerie house made of birch bark with woven twig windows and a hazel leaf roof on the edge of a cool stream.
