This weekend I had an irrepressible urge to try my hand at yet another fairy house, but this time I didn't want the elements to make short work of my efforts. Months ago, I purchased a wooden box from JoAnn's Fabrics, knowing it would make a great miniature room box. A couple of weeks ago when we cleaned the garage, I found a light, a Christmas tree sized bulb on a switch. Last night I set to work.
|Here's the empty box, the light fixture and a few "found objects."|
|I added burlap to the inside walls, and brown paper to the floor. I started gluing pieces of driftwood and roots from a ficus tree around the opening to make a frame. I also made a loft to the right.|
