A Fairy Door - Now A House!!

Thank you for all your lovely comments on my last post.
They always make me smile.

This is another of my projects, that took quite a while to do. 
I knew I wanted to make it a bit different from the
plain Fairy Door it was when I bought it.

Also, if it's a Fairy Door, I wanted the children to 
see Fairies when they opened the door.

So firstly I removed the point on the top of the frame
and also the lock, as it was a bit chunky for me.

I painted the door and covered the frame with my Driftwood.
Finding the pieces of Driftwood that fitted together and 
getting that right, took me ages!

I added a Lily of the Valley Fairy on a toadstool,
 on the outside, stamped and painted on Watercolour paper. 
And just a few tiny butterflies!!
Oh!! And a few flowers and foliage. 

I also made a box that was the shape of the frame
and deep enough to put some fairies into it.

So when the door is opened, there are three fairies inside.

I had great fun making this, even though it wasn't easy to do.
I hope it doesn't sell too quick, as I don't think 
I will make another one!

The pictures are a bit rubbish, as it was a bit gloomy 
when I took them.

Thanks again for taking time to visit my little blog.
Your messages are always treasured.

Big Hugs,

Carol I don’t know how you can bear to part with these after all the work you put into them!
I’ve seen a few fairy doors but none with actual fairies, this is delightful

This is so different to the ones I make, much more rustic. Love all the cute fairies.
