We’re a big fan of fairy doors and gnome doors here at our house. We have a gnome door in one of our trees out front and have made salt dough fairy doors inside in past years (click here to see how we did it).
Tonight, I stumbled on some more wonderful ways to make fairy doors (or elf doors or goblin weapons closets or whatever your children want to deem them!).
Here’s a few….. Click on the links for lots more photos and directions.
Knickertwist posted all sorts of fabulous inspirational photos on Craftster. I think it’s brilliant to use popsicle sticks for the doors, and now we have a new reason to start stockpiling them.
And just look at the tiny laundry hanging nearby!
Artful Kid posted this adorable twig fairy door to Flickr.
Kaboodle featured this darling door that was offered for sale on Etsy.
And Roots Nursery really went to town making fairy doors after getting inspired by others online.
This would make a fantastic rainy day project with the kiddos and I think we’ll try our hands and making some more sometime soon.
Remember not to focus on making perfect little pretty projects. For kids, the magic is in the making of them, especially when we share their enthusiasm and join in the fun. And fairies are marvelously unconcerned about perfection. ;)
Happy Weekend, Happy Easter, Happy Passover and Happy Everything Else!
