Step 1 Fairy door supplies

This easy DIY fairy door tutorial from Lucia Mallea only requires a few simple supplies for such a fun way to enhance your garden (or another place in your home where fairy friends are invited)!

Step 2 Apply wood glue to side of craft stick

The wood craft sticks will be used to construct your fairy door. Apply Wood Glue to the entire side edge of a craft stick and press the side edge of another stick into the glue. 

Step 3 Continue gluing craft sticks together

Continue gluing craft sticks together until you have the width you would like for your fairy door. 

Step 4 Cut arch from scratch paper

Let the sticks dry completely, and cut out an arch from your scratch paper to use as your door template.

Step 5 Cut door shape using template

Once the Wood Glue dries, use your arch template to trim around the craft sticks so they are in the shape of a door.

Step 6 Spray paint door

Working in a well-ventilated area, spray paint your fairy door any color you like! (Or any color that your fairies will like!)

Step 7 Score door with craft knife

Use a craft knife to score the door with small cuts to create texture like youd see on an old wood door.

Step 8 Glue twigs around door

Break or trim your twigs to fit around your door, then use Wood Glue to glue them in place, framing the door.

Step 9 Glue moss and flowers to accent door

Dont forget to cut small pieces of twig to create hinges and a door handle! Next glue moss and flowers where ever you like on the door to create pretty nature accents. Let everything dry completely.
