How to Make A Fairy (or Gnome) House

Lauren Hare

Summer vacation is upon us! Now is the time to start thinking about fun crafts or projects to keep ourselves and our kiddos engaged. A great activity to do as an adult, a kid, or a family, is making a fairy or gnome house! 

Abstract Fairy HouseFairy houses can be as intricate or simple as the imagination of the maker wants them to be. Here is an example (see left) of a house submitted to our annual Fairy & Gnome house competition this year. You can see this was a more abstract approach, submitted in the children's category of the competition. We also had very intricate and detailed submissions by children and adults alike. Here is an example (see right) of an elaborate house submitted to the adult category.

Fairy House Competition 2019Now, the fairy or gnome house is only one aspect of a fairy garden! This tends to be the piece that gets the most attention, but don't forget you can make a full garden. We recently hosted a workshop where families could do just that. Here is how you can make your own fairy or gnome garden right at home.

 

Instructions

1. Gather decorations.

This is part of the fun! You don’t need to go to the store to get decorations (but you could). Instead, go to a local park, or your own back yard. Find stones, gravel, leaves, sticks, flowers, pebbles, hay, pine cones, bark, or whatever you find that is exciting! You can also get small toys from your home, straws, toothpicks, string, etc. Just remember that fairies do not like it if we pick living material (moss is alive and awesome!). They love it when we recycle/reuse and avoid negative impacts to the environment.

2. Gather additional supplies.

We recommend having a container for the garden like a large pot or bowl, potting soil, some small plants (like succulents), a hot glue gun, pruners, and paints.

3. Have a vision, and execute!

This is the fun part! Start creating a garden for your fairy or gnome to live in

  1. Make the Garden – Using your pot or bowl, add potting soil, and any plants you will have in your garden.
  2. Make the House & Decorations – You can paint rocks, build houses, make patterns, and do whatever your imagination tells you.
  3. Display your Masterpiece - Choose a location that allows your plants to get the sun they need and admire your creation!

 Here are some finished examples from our Workshop

  • A GREAT SPELL CASTER (DR. EMU) THAT HELP ME BRING BACK MY EX GIRLFRIEND.
    Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day I heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.
