Fairy Village

This is a super simple kid's project that is perfect for those rainy summer days.

Chloe and I have been admiring all the fairy gardens at our local garden stores this summer.We decided to make some of our own fairy houses using Creative Paperclay®.

We started by rolling out a small ball of clay to a thickness of between 3/8" and 1/2". Next we used a plastic picnic knife to cut rectangular and square shapes. These varied from 1" to 2" in height. To form the roof, we cut away a small triangle on each side of the top.

We used a toothpick to etch lines for doors, windows, and shingles. When he clay pieces were dry, we lightly sanded them, then painted accents with acrylic paints. This was our smallest house—a one story.

 Our two story houses gave a bit more surface area for decoration. We were able to attach a real doorknobs made from tiny balls of clay.

Our three houses already have imaginary fairies living in them!!
