F is for Fairy House


Materials Needed:
yogurt, cottage cheese, cream cheese, or plastic plant containers, any size
gold metallic paint
craft glue
feathers
stickers
ribbon
beads
stickers
decorative moss
pre-cut paper items

Directions:
After washing and drying a plastic container, turn it upside down and cut out a small rectangular hole for the door. You can either leave it attached and fold it so it swings open and shut or just cut it off entirely.
Be sure to do the painting outside or in a well-ventilated area. Paint the outside of the container with gold paint. Dabbing and blotting it will create a fun texturized look and may be needed to keep it from streaking. You may need more than one coat.
After the paint has thoroughly dried, glue feathers, stickers, ribbons, beads, moss, buttons and paper items such as tiny little fences onto the fairy house. We used Froot Loops to decorate the houses because we were celebrating the letters F and L.
