Making fairy doors seems to be the epitome of childhood innocence. To believe in something so innocent and pure is what childhoods should be made off.

Make sure you follow my craft board on Pinterest for more ideas. Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

To make your own fairy doors you will need:

Craft stick fairy doors

  • Craft sticks – jumbo sized, normal, and mini*
  • Hot glue gun
  • Paint
  • Paintbrush

*You can just cut a normal sized one in half if you don’t have mini ones.

Start by laying 4 jumbo craft sticks next to each other. Glue one normal sized one going diagonally across them. Then a mini one going horizontally across the top and the bottom.

Once the glue has dried, turn it over and paint your door. If you are going to put your door outside, I would give it a coat of PVA glue. It won’t completely protect it from the weather, but if may help a bit.

BB and YC thought it would be nice for us to put our fairy doors out in the woods amongst the bluebells. We found some trees and logs to put them against for the fairies to find.  If you find a quiet corner in your house to put them then a little fairy may take up residence.  My charge’s love sending little messages to their fairies, and are over joyed when they receive a little letter back.
