For Valentine's Day, I made my daughter a little gourd house, roughly following the instructions from a tutorial on Bitter Betty's Blog
, adding a wooden base and a set of little fairies of my own design:
The gourd wasn't flat enough on the bottom for the hot glue to hold it onto the base for long, so I'm reworking that now. When a little friend's third birthday came up, I decided she needed some fairies, too:
But I needed an alternative to the gourd house for their home, since I haven't fixed my daughter's yet, and I came up with this super easy little idea:
The little fairies can sit at the table when it's time to play:
Or they can retreat into the little box when it's time to sleep:
There are tutorials for the fairies
and the little woodland box
(not that you really need a tutorial for that one) on my blog.
Thanks for looking!
