I was unsure where to put this, and I didn't see a wood craft area.
Anyways, my daughter is always getting into sticks and rocks to make a home for the garden fairies...so I figured why really make one.
During the winter we heat most of our house by the fire place. Some of the wood we use, the bark falls off and we put in it a another bin to keep it more dry. So I went though it to look for some good pieces to use for the house. I wanted some with moss on it and some of the birch tree bark that had that papery look to it.
Then I had my daughter find some sticks, and rocks, and I had her grab a few broken shells and sand dollars we found on our last beach trip. I also had some of that dry moss you can get from the dollar store that I used too.
So we took out the hot glue gun, and the E6000 glue and glued the bark pieces together, and some rocks down for little chairs the sticks and shells, and sand dollars for decor and part of the roof.
Later when some of my wild flowers bloom, I am sure my daughter will pick fresh flowers for the fairy for her house. =)

And the front. I used that dry moss to cover up the other glue, put some where my daughter said it needed 'green stuff'
