How to Make Fairy & Gnome doors

Fairy door

Fairy or Gnome Door

Are there fairies and gnomes in your herb garden?

Here is another great garden decor project you can make!

These fairy and gnome doors are easy to do and lots of fun to make. They look terrific placed against a tree with a hollow or in a ‘nook’ around tree roots.

Kids have a good time making these, too. They can use a plastic knife or ruler edge for making the ‘wood grain’ and will just need a little adult help with baking their project.

In this first video I’ll show you how to make a fairy door with oven bake clay.

The second video¬†(below) you’ll learn how to make a door with wood, twigs, and craft sticks, bark or shims.

This video shows another type of door with a more natural look.

Now remember- if you make some please send a photo, or post on the Facebook page! We’d love to see your handiwork :)

Thank you so much for creating these lovely videos to spread more beautiful magic and mystery in our world! Me and my monkeys will be making fairy doors very soon and we’ll certainly come back and share our pictures :)

My pleasure Becky! Can’t wait to see what your monkeys come up with. Mine used to create some really interesting other-world portals when they were kids ;)
