Fairy Houses can take many forms and can be created in many different places. Find a quiet place away from roads or busy pathways. The base of a tree or the side of a rock could be just right. Close to the ground is usually best. Sometimes you may find a special place in the low branches of a tree or bush.
Look for building areas in woods, beaches, meadows, and especially your own backyard! Use only natural materials to build your house, nothing artificial.
Many fairy houses look so natural that they are almost hidden. Have fun building them everywhere, in every season, and enjoy all of your special visitors!
Sticks, bark, dry grasses, pebbles, shells, feathers, seaweed, pinecones and nuts are just some of the materials you can use. A fairy house built in the woods will look different than one built at the beach!
Different seasons will give constantly changing materials that you can use. Be imaginative!
Be respectful of plants that are growing. Try not to disturb plants that are still living, such as ferns, mosses and flowers. Fairies are careful not to harm anything that is growing.
The book, Fairy Houses, includes six pages of instructions and the video, Kristen’s Fairy House, comes with a leaflet on building fairy houses.
