How to make craft stick fairy doors 15



One of the great things about children is their imagination.  How stones become treasure, dandelion clocks are fairy wishes and every rainbow has a pot of cold at the end.  So we decided to make some craft stick fairy doors to welcome the fairies in to our garden this summer.

We are back sharing another way to make simple everyday objects into something extraordinary, using nothing but our imagination with the Fab Lollies Sprinkles of Imagination campaign.  These super simple craft stick fairy doors would also be great to add to a room for the tooth fairy!

With your kids, line up your craft sticks to measure out your door. As you can see we made our doors in two different styles, but you could make your door as wide or as narrow as you want.  We used duct tape on the rear of the craft sticks to make the door rather than gluing them together, this way is much faster and also simpler for children.

Help your kids by cutting your craft sticks to go across the door.  (NB, this is a step for an adult*). We used a craft knife, but you could use a small handheld saw or even garden shears, and stick to them to front of the door with wood glue*.

We raided our button tin to find some buttons to use as door handles for our fairy doors.
