How To Build A Little Fairy House
In order to build such a fairy house, you need to spend money almost to nothing. Building this fairy house might take some extra time when you are on a mission of building an entire fairy garden. Though it will take quite a while, the result will be unique and magical with your own personal touch.
Let’s have a look at the materials required to make such a fairy house at home,

• A pencil
• Hot glue gun
How To Build The House:
• At first, you will need to draw the shape of the front-side of the house on a card cut out the shape with the scissors following the pencil lines. Then superimpose it and again, draw outer lines and cut it. This way, you will get the front and back side of the house.
• Following the first step, cut out the side parts of the house.
• Now, using the hot glue gun attach all the four parts carefully.
• Use hot glue to attach the driftwood around the border of the house to strengthen the structure.
• Make the windows and a door in the shape you prefer.
Time To Get Messy:
• Paste contact cement on the walls of the house and paste the pebbles one by one slowly in a Symmetrical manner.
• Place rotten pieces of wood above the fairy house as the roof (if you do not want to use rotten woods as the roof then you can use moss)
• Break small portions of rotten wood and place them inside the frame of the door and windows so you can create a gorgeous beach cottage effect.
• Finally, keep it outside under the sun to dry.

• Contact cement
• Pebbles (light and dark coloured)

• A safety knife
How To Build The Fairy House Cave

• Put the bowl upside down and paste the light coloured pebbles with a bit of cement beneath each pebble, in this way so you can cover the whole bowl.
• Now to add some highlights, paste the dark coloured pebbles with cement on the side of the bowl, above the window and the door.
