520 Create the ultimate fairy houses, made with natural
materials - just the way real fairies build their homes!
Have you ever seen a real fairy house? Not the ceramic
ones you purchase, but a real fairy house made from
natural elements? Well, now you can build your own
miniature magical abode - the perfect addition to your
garden. Revealed in Fairy Houses for the first time are
the step-by-step instructions for constructing exquisite
fairy houses, explained by master fairy house architect
Sally Smith. From her home on the edge of the Adirondacks,
Smith has been creating one-of-a-kind fairy residencies
for years. She uses natural artifacts such as butterfly
wings for stained-glass windows, twigs for window frames,
and birch bark for walls. Smith reveals her building
secrets in Fairy Houses. Readers begin their fairy house
project by flipping through an inspiration gallery,
deciding what kind of house they wish to create and
considering where in nature they'll put it. From there,
readers learn about building materials (found and natural),
on-site fairy house construction, how to light a fairy
house, and how to incorporate stonework into the design.
All of Smith's secret tips and techniques are then
showcased in a series of step-by-step photos, making fairy
house creation easy. The ones featured in Fairy Houses
were designed especially for this book and are meant for
longer-lasting installations. With this book, fairy houses
move beyond "cute" and into beautiful nature-woven works
of art. When you're through, you'll find yourself in an
enchanted land where a Lord of the Rings-esque mood is
