Arts & Crafts by Me Books Asia: DIY Fairy House
Wednesday, January 24, 2018
Fairy tales will always be a huge part of our little ones' childhood! With this, you and your little one can make a magical, one-of-a-kind house that any fairy will love to come home to. Let your imagination sparkle as you decorate it with flair!
As well as being a great way to stimulate their creativity and imagination, making a fairy house teaches children about recycling; so many of the materials used here are things we already have at home that are probably going into the bin.

old magazines/ newspaper

How to make your fairy house of dreams?
Close your eyes and imagine your fairy house...
Take a cardboard. Draw a larger base for the land and a small circle as a base for your fairy house.
Cut both shapes out, crumple up old magazines and secure them to the cardboard base with tape.
Cut a cylindrical container horizontally, making sure that it's 8cm tall.
Draw on some doors and windows and cut them out.
Attach your fairy house together with some tape.
Take some craft wire and bend it into a picture holder.
Attach your fairy house and craft wire to the larger base with hot glue gun.
Tear tissues into small pieces and create a layer of paper mache with PVA Glue.
When the paper mache fully dries, it's time to add colour to your fairy house!
