There is a public garden near our house that is peppered with Fairy Doors. My kids sprint down the path towards the little village of doors and houses and scan the ground for traces of fairy dust. It’s magical, and the feeling of excitement and wonder is contagious while you’re under the canopy of trees that’s no doubt hiding little fairies. When I saw these fantastic wooden fairy doors on the Darice website, I knew that they were just begging for personality and we had to have them. Check out how I created adorable little DIY fairy doors for our backyard!
Not only are they inexpensive, but they’re perfect for both kids and adults who want to invite the fairies to come live in their backyard.
DIY Fairy Doors Supplies:
- Unfinished Wooden Fairy Doors
- Acrylic Craft Paint
- Mod Podge Outdoor or a Spray-On Sealer
- Darice Fairy Garden Accessories (Stepping Stones, Mini Resin Rabbits)
- Darice Hot Glue Gun
- Green Pipe Cleaner and Rosette Beads (For mini wreath)
- Rustic Tin Star (Paint white for beachy door)
The fabulous thing about these DIY fairy doors is that you can accessorize them in any way you want, and with things you might have lurking in your craft stash: a lucky horseshoe charm, a beachy star, or even a rogue key.
My kidlets immediately ran them out to the yard and set up their “invitations” for the fairies.
And while one of the doors might have been a bit cattywampus with the child-installation, it’s still quietly waiting for its fairy to slip through it.
Make a sweet little fairy door for the dreamers – (or gardeners) – in your life, and invite the fairies to come and stay a while! Learn how to create a complete fairy garden with your kids in a planter or birdbath.
