I love the new craze of Fairy Doors, we even found one on a tree during our summer break in Sherwood forest. Although Matilda is a little young for the idea of Fairies,I thought it would look great in her room. Fairy doors are not too pricey to buy, however I fancied a go at making one so it would be unique for her.
My dad made me up the frame from some of our old wood flooring and I then set to work with cake cutters and FIMO to make the decorations.
The lock and key came from an old 21st Birthday card and the Butterfly “knocker” was a bead from a broken bracket, all sourced from my craft-box. Items like these are all available from hobby shops and EBay.
Gluing it together took some time and then it was varnished with some detailing added with markers.
I will next be making one to go on the tree outside, using some bark sourced from the time we spent in Sherwood Forest!
