Magical Fairy House Tutorial to Get You Inspired

As you have probably seen fairy doors and magical enchanted houses are all the rage now and for good reason they are so fun! I just love all the handmade love and attention that goes into these special worlds and I love making and sharing them with you too.

In the past I made a magical fairy lantern but now I am on to the whole house! I found this mushroom shaped glass jar at a yard sale and it has been in my studio holding thread, when it finally dawned on me what a cool and unique fairy house it would make. I can't imagine anyone not wanting to live inside of this place and its not even finished. LOL

Since this was a big project I knew I did not want to sculpt all the individual flowers and pieces. So I turned to my molds and cutters for assistance. It went surprisingly fast once my clay was conditioned and before I knew it I had enough flowers and leaves to get me creating. I made a total of 3 sheets of silkscreens using the Poppy Garden silkscreen from our shop. I pieced the 3 sheets together and melded the seams with my fingers and my acrylic rod. I then added more flowers and leaves and of course what fairy house doesn't have a fairy lurking somewhere amongst the flowers.

I love how it is coming out but it is still a work in progress. Here is what I used so far to make it.
