Make a Coastal Fairy House

Inspired by the coastal pine forest, sand and sea, a fairy house is crafted for the tiniest of folk.

This easy to make fairy house is crafted from seashells and pinecones.

These days, miniature gardening seems to be hitting an all time high. These gardens are easy to maintain, take up little space and can be brought indoors during the off-season. I love combining one-of-a-kind handcrafted items with store bought accessories for the garden. A great place to start when crafting your very own miniature garden is with the house. I was inspired by the sea. So with that in mind, I converted a basic bird house found at the craft store into this sweet little cottage.

Supplies

  • One pre-made wooden birdhouse
  • Decorative shell pieces found in the silk floral section of the craft store
  • One small shell
  • Weatherproof glue
  • Pinecones
  • An air plant
