DIY Little Fairy Home

Hi friends!!

Spring is in the air and Easter is close too, so it would be a good idea to tackle a project with my daughters while enjoying some time outdoors.

Before I show you how to make this little fairy home, I want to tell you about the monthly challenge happening in the Upcycle Sharin’ facebook group {click on that link to join over 50,000 other members that love repurposed projects and to get the upcycle challenge information each month}!

Monthly Themed Upcycle Challenge

At the beginning of each month this year, we’ll be posting a themed upcycling challenge.  You’ll have the chance to link up one {or more} of your favorite projects that fit the theme {you don’t need to have a blog … you can simply link a photo at the bottom of this post} and readers will have the chance to vote on their favorites!  So fun, right?  Even cooler?  We have sponsors each month so the winner will receive an awesome prize from one of our favorite brands!

This month’s theme is GREEN {your project must have some element of green in it} and the challenge is sponsored by Dixie Belle Paint Company!  Dixie Belle Paint Company has amazing paint products in a variety of colors, glazes and finishes, stains, stencils, brushes and more!  They’re the perfect products for upcyclers and repurposers to alter and update those old items!

The person with the most votes in this month’s challenge will win a prize pack valued at over a hundred dollars!

How to Join the Upcycle Challenge

My daughters wanted to make a fairy home for a while, and this was the perfect excuse to make one.

We used what you can see in the picture below. I will add some affiliate links for your convenience.

We traced a circle on a piece of cardboard. We love cardboard, you can see it from other projects like this cardboard village.

We divided it into sections to bend it and make a rounded roof.

You can see I had some help 😉

We used a hot glue gun to attach the leaves on top, and white glue to add the little stones.

We found that we were needing a great amount of glue to keep those stones in place.

We did the window with a little piece of cardboard and attached it with the hot glue gun as well.

Even our project is not green itself, it will be in the garden which is full with shamrocks. And no, we haven’t found a four-leave one yet.

We hope our fairies enjoy their new home :-). We made our little fairy home with all of our love!

      Hi, Stella!! Thanks for letting me know, we’ve between Barcelona and the south of France and I scheduled it to show on the right day, but I somehow messed it and scheduled the draft instead of the correct one.

  1. says:

    Pili this is sooo cute ~ my daughters would love one of these in our garden! I’ve thought about it during the summer but never made one, maybe soon, I’ll show them this one. I’m sure they wanna do one right away!

    • Pili says:

      Katrin, when Christmas are over and lives get back to normality you can make some with them, I can tell you’ll have fun!!

    • Pili says:

      They love it too!! Even my little one made a table and an umbrella out of cardboard for the fairies, she wants them to feel at home

  2. Keri says:

    Wow!!!!! Pili, you and your girls did such an amazing job on this fairy house!!! I’m going to have to use your tutorial to make my little ones and fairy house too…they love Tinkerbell!! 😉 This really looks awesome!!

    • Pili says:

      Hi, Keri!! One of the most exciting things was looking for the peebles… we have a lot of sand around us but not peebles. You can’t imagine our face when we discovered a playground with millions of them!
      I’m sure your little ones would love one, and I would love to see yours.
      Thank you for your sweet comments!

    • Pili says:

      Thank you darling! I hope it resist the rain or we’ll need to make another… maybe with a different roof

    • Pili says:

      You are absolutely right, I am blessed to have two precious daughters who love to make anything with her hands.
      Thank you so much for your kind comments Mary.

    • Pili says:

      Hi, T’onna! We thought the best thing for the roof were leaves, as it was round. And there were easy to attach and much lighter than the pebbles.

  3. gigi says:

    That is beyond adorable! What a creative project! I’ll check out what the other bloggers did for the fairy theme! I can just picture a line of happy fairies coming to visit their home! Your girls did a fabulous job!

    • Pili says:

      We would love to have a line of happy fairies coming home, can you imagine that? My youngest has made even a table for them
      Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving your comment!

  4. Jess says:

    OH my gosh…this turned out so cute! I love the idea!! 🙂

    Thanks for joining Cooking and Crafting with J & J! Merry Christmas!

    • Pili says:

      Don’t be so hard with yourself, I’m sure you could make any lovely craft if your kids asked you. Is there something a mom can’t do when they ask us with their bright eyes?
      Many thanks for stopping by!

    This is adorable! I love how you worked together and used easy to gather supplies.
    I treat my fairies well but can always use new ways to spoil them.

    • Pili says:

      There is never too much regarding making fairies happy, they bring us joy!
      Welcome to my crazy corner, Laura, and Happy New Year!

  7. Denise/DIY Crush says:

    This is absolutely darling! What a great and pretty idea! Thank you so much for sharing at my craft party on Thursday! I pinned all your entries! Would love to see your newest posts this week, which starts at 7pm EST.

  8. Life Loving says:

    This is so amazing. If I were a fairy, I would definitely make a home here. You’ve been so patient with those stones. One of my best friends has a fairy garden in the window of her cellar room. It was there when she moved in and she’s maintained it ever since. What a lovely idea.

    • Pili says:

      I have never thought I was going to make a fairy home, but I loved the experience. I bet your friend’s fairy garden is dreamy!

  11. Gwen says:

    My bitty granddaughter is planting her first garden this year. Although she is too young (14 months) to build the fairy house, CuiCui can make it for her and we can set it in her garden. I can’t wait to get started. Thank you.
