Let me start by saying I did not look a detergent bottle and think up this idea on my own. I was absolutely totally inspired by a post on a kids art and craft blog called Filth Wizardry. Here is the link to the specific inspiration post

Here is my version...



I'm really happy with how they turned out. These ones are headed to my local arts centre for a fairy village exhibit Smiley

And if you're too lazy to follow the above link, here's the inspiration project.



Edited: Just adding a photo of these installed at the exhibit...

What did you coat the houses with....it looks like stucco or granite! Very fun and a great recycling craft. So...what is the rent for moving into one of these?

You are so clever and talented. These turned out adorable and I like you can tell what they were in a former life. Smiley

Just awesome! Thanks for posting - you have inspired me to save my next bottle and put it somewhere on a trail where kids will find an unexpected fairy house!
