Create your own Bird House Fairy Village by using some wooden craft bird houses.
Instead of buying a ready-made Fairy House, make and decorate your own easily and inexpensively by adapting a wooden Bird house. Then create a whole bird house fairy village by joining a few together!
- Wooden Bird Houses
- Craft Paint
- Bag of Artificial moss
- Decorations e.g. Artificial flowers, acorns, butterflies, fairies.
Adapt your Bird House if needed by enlarging the door or window
Undercoat your bird house by painting it all white (this will give a much nicer finish when it’s decorated and seal it from the weather)
Using pretty colours, paint over the white to create decorative fairy houses
Use the Moss, decorate the roof
Using the artificial flowers, butterflies, fairies etc to decorate your fairy house
Idea…. these decorated fairy houses would make gorgeous decorations for a fairy party!
Or a fun craft activity for the school holidays
