Fresh Clips: Make Fairy House Furniture


| June/July 2010


Children (and many adults!) love fairies. You can make fairies a part of your favorite child’s life by providing some areas for play and a ready supply of natural objects. Wherever you look outdoors, you’ll find natural treasures to build and furnish a fairy house.

• Chinese-lantern floor lamp
• Pussy willows for fairy pillows
• Curled leaf chaise with woolly lamb’s ear for an afghan
• Hollyhock footstool
• Chestnut bed and rose-petal blanket
• Scallop-shell headboard
• Leaf-and-twig tepee
• Rosehip teapot and acorn cups
• Acorn birdhouse
• Pinecone scales for shingles 
• Teapot with grapevine handle and spout
• Mussel-shell bathtub
• Thin rounds of branches for tables
• Berries for architectural embellishments
• Sycamore “button” for a modern lamp
• Love-in-a-mist sugar bowl
