This is the second cottage fairy house Briar and I completed this week for our shop. Every fairy house I create once the carcass framing is finished starts to form its own personality. There are times when I do not think I am the one actually sculpting these unique and one of a kind woodland fairy homes. I spend hours gluing and find the right piece to fit into a nook on the wall or what branch goes where after foraging the roadsides and woods. Yes they may not last for years outside in the cottage garden, but what a statement inside a whimsical enchanted room.
Woodland Fairy House Wedding Cottage
Imagine two fairies in love and moving into their first little cottage together in the woodland forest. Constructed from twigs moss and branches and things found in the woods and nature, my cottage is enchanting, full of imagination and loaded with mystical tree magic. The back is made of split branches with an opening for gazing up at the moon and stars. The roof is from twigs and moss and cones with a few bobs thrown in. The sides are unique with one side being made from fallen bark and moss and the other side from cut slivers of branches and pebbles in between. On the outside front post is a round sign (blank) ready to be personalized with name house number or greeting.
Inside is a custom bed painted black with a custom blue and white fabric and a fern frond for added decor. A table is next to the bed. On the other side is a covered chair in matching fabric and a table. Overhead is a hanging light made from a clay pot suspended from the rafters with wire. The floor has a burlap rug and moss grows around the edge.
A friend is having a beautiful woodland themed wedding and you want to give a special gift? I have created this woodland fairy house for just that person. Of course this house is also a fabulous gift to mark the new house you just bought together or the anniversary you have coming up or you just love fairies and fairy houses.
Outside measures 12″ x 11″ x 8″ roughly.
Built over a wood carcass and weighs about 4lbs.
These are my original designs and I hand craft each piece for my woodland fairy houses..
