Fairy World Extras
You can glue or nail your door to the base of a tree, or just prop it up like we did. Fairy doors make great additions to your garden place kids might happen upon them.
We decided to make a bridge to go over a moat filled with river pebbles, so we hot glued stick pieces together to form the base of the bridge, then glued little stick pieces all over the top of it.
Dig a little moat into the dirt and filled it with river pebbles.
Add more sticks, ivy, whatever all around the door to make it mysterious and appealing to fairies, and small pieces of cut branch to be stepping stones.
Use your imagination and see what other nature elements you can bring into your fairy door.
