Our fairy garden is one of the kids’ favorite places to play in the backyard. It’s actually a fairy and frog garden and a couple of weeks ago they decided the frogs and fairies need a fairy house.

How to Make a Fairy House:
- quart size (32 oz) dairy carton
- acrylic spray paint–ours was similar to this one
- hot glue
- foam flower sticker (Craft Project Ideas sent us some for free)
- 6mm faceted beads (Craft Project Ideas sent us some for free)
- or any other craft supplies your children choose!
We cut the bottom off the carton with scissors and then cut a door opening into front of it. We painted the entire carton with spray paint and it took about 3 coats.
Then I helped the kids hot glue the foam flower (which has held up really well in our FL rainstorms!) and the beads to the front of the carton.
They couldn’t decide what other decorations to add so so far that’s all they’ve done. Once you cut and paint the carton your kids can customize your fairy house craft anyway they would like!
We also used a quart sized carton because our fairies are pretty tall. If you have smaller fairies or if you don’t want to put fairies in your garden you can use a pint sized carton.
We made a fairy(and frog) garden because we had little fairy and frog figures already, but you can make any kind of play garden.
A dinosaur garden, a gnome garden, LEGO Minifigures garden…any of these would be just as fun and engaging!
