Greetings every body..

   I have an Aunt who loves Fairies and flowers so much..  so for last Eid al-Fitr, I made her a Fairy house..
 I took a plain white Lantern, and altered it a bit..adding flower petals to the floor and as "bedding" for the fairy's nut-shell bed, and lots of moss , dried grass, faked-leaves and beads..

the mushrooms are made of felt and shaped around buttons..

sand and shells ..the fairy even has her own private beach..(that was originally "desert" sand!!..but who can tell the diffrence?..)

the interior : her bed, a tiny table, and a pebble for her to sit on..I made this table out of dried twigs and lots of glue.. can you see the stamp?..it was supposed to be some sort of wall art..

Sorry for the blurry-ness of this one..I am using my mobile-cam..

My Aunt was so happy when she opened her package..  I am Glad that she liked it..
Thanks for reading..  please tell me your opinion..

I love this idea! It looks like the fairy has her own fancy summer-house! All the details are so cute.

This is a great idea, I have two of these lanterns and never used them. Your fairy house is so cute, I'm very tempted to try this.
