Starting a Fairy House

A Woodland Fairy House is more than a few bits of moss and sticks. They are well constructed and sturdy.

The frame-work for a Woodland Fairy House.

Each one of the Woodland Fairy Houses is unique and takes a life of its own. Since they are created from nature where no two things are ever the same so are the Woodland Fairy Houses created here at Between the Weeds.

The frame-work above is a new fairy house and will be available soon at www.LRStudio.etsy.com. First I glue and nail the frame together. I work with a size that is easy to ship via USPS. Once the polyurethane glue has dried and cured the frame is painted, here a dark green. This Woodland Fairy House is going to take the shape of log cabin so now the branches have to be sawed in half lengthwise and cut to 11″. The next step is to nail them in place. I use a nail gun but you could use a hammer too. Once everything is together your imagination takes hold and this is the part I love the best. Giving the Woodland Fairy House personality and character just as you would with your own little house.

Stay tuned for the next phase Creating a unique Woodland Fairy House.
