Thanks so much for all the nice comments!  Cheesy

I took a few in progress pictures so I will definitely write up a little tutorial. We used low temp glue guns, and  made sure to have  dried moss on hand to shove into all the joints while the glue was still hot to hide any that might seep out. We basically just used a pair of old scissors to score sticks and bark before breaking into the shapes and sizes we needed for furniture.

Here's a chair in progress:


it became this:



We have family coming this weekend so I have to spend the next few days hiding evidence of my craftiness Undecided
But, I will try to get a tutorial up early next week.

rlynn- that sounds like the most wonderful play table ever! Who wouldn't want a mysterious dragon cave?

cherry_blossom55 - I have never seen that book! It looks like just the kind of book I would love...I loved Abel's Island and all mouse stories when I was a kid.

Thanks so much for the nice comments! My daughter is so proud of our creations...it's so cute!

We did consider making a fairy house,but it would have to be pretty big to hold it all.  We planned on hiding the furniture around on some tree bark platforms we stuck in some shrubs around the yard. I love having secret little things hiding in the plants in the garden Cheesy I'd love a small fairy house to keep inside with even tinier furniture...and maybe even have some lighting in it to use as a night light!

Dude! both the out soor secreed away bitsa nd the night light sound awesome! When i was younger and went camping or for a walkin the woods (ok I still do it but dont get access to woodland as often) I used to make little fairy camps out of the stones and twigs and stuff around nothing as awesome as what you'v posted here though. And a bit of me hoped other people would find them especialy children and wonder if the little people ready did make them lol

We do the same thing! Last year my daughter taught her girl scout troop how to make furniture during a camp out. They left little fairy scenes along the trail for other girls to find. Wish we could see a little person discovering it!

These are so lovely it breaks my heart to think there may not be fairies to sit in them....and then I get to the last pic and HOORAY! There are fairies ( I knew it all along  Wink )

Your art is so lovely. Thank you so much for sharing.

I just bought my daughter a doll house & this makes me wish we had simply used what we have in our backyard & in our imagination. This would really raise Polly Pocket to a new level.  Grin
