How to Make a Fairy Door
Below, we discuss how to make a fairy door. But first, you’ll need the following materials:
- About 6-9 twigs or popsicle sticks
- Tiny pebble or an acorn cup
Once you have all the materials, do the following:
- Lay about four pieces of twigs or popsicle sticks in a vertical position and place them side by side.
- Next, glue two pieces of twigs or popsicle sticks diagonally on the back of the four twigs or popsicle sticks. The two pieces of twigs or popsicle sticks should form an X as they hold the laid down twigs or popsicle sticks together. Once the glue is dry, move on to the next step.
- Glue an acorn cup or a tiny pebble to the structure. This will serve as the doorknob.
- Next, attach your fairy door to the tree.
You may modify the steps above to suit the standards you want for your fairy door.
Elements to Add to a Fairy Door
The guide above shows how to make a basic fairy door. But if you want, you can make your fairy door more stylish by adding elements like these:
- Balsa wood strips – this gives the door some woody texture.
- Glazing – you may add glazing to the door. You could even make the glazing noctilucent.
- Windows – you may make windows to complement your fairy door. The door will be even more enchanting if the windows are noctilucent.
- Decoration – you may add an ornament to the door to make it more appealing. The decoration could be a floral pattern, a welcome sign, or something similar.
