DIY Cheap, Easy & Creepy Specimen Shadow Boxes Tutorial with Free Labels Printable from Seeing Things here. I have posted quite a few tutorials from Seeing Things (a long with some good free printables). I have also written that I really like how she structures her tutorials and shows you exactly what she’s used to make her DIYs. Instructions for the shadow boxes are at the bottom of her post at the link.
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.
