Woodland Fairy Homes

A while back I posted about having recyclables floating 

around your art room or studio.

 Are you a person who has many items “stuff” in a closet at home ready to be used in a unique and creative way?

Here is what we created with our recyclables. 

 Woodland Fairy Homes created by 10 and 11 year olds. 

I found some old juice containers in my classroom and used them to create these fun miniature fairy houses.

First: Start with a small juice container. 

Any milk or juice box will do! (Rinse well)

Second: Wrap a piece of painted paper around the container and 

glue or tape down.

Next: use painted paper scraps to add 

doors and windows

 and top it off with a little shingled roof.

Details were added with oil pastels, window panes and flowers. Anything you want to add.

We also used cardboard and stamped tudor style timbers in black paint on our houses.

    Just got back from Ireland. This relates so well to the fairyland architecture you see in the woods there. Thank you for the ideas.
