This fairy house for small fairies is built inside a storage box shaped like a house. The house is decorated with a timber frame. The roof and the picket fence are made from ice lolly sticks and small rustic wooden discs form a path to the small magical door, which is surrounded by small rustic wooden discs. Flowers, birds and gardening tools are added for further decoration to create a cozy look and feel.
