Fairy House-MMP April Challenge

Hey, all! Welcome back to my little corner!

I am bringing you a little project I put together, inspired by the Mixed Media Place’s April Challenge. I don’t often work with pinks, but I really loved the mood board this month, and decided it was a good time to pull out my pink paints!

Aren’t the colors for the April Challenge absolutely wonderful? I couldn’t help but want to make something pink!


Now, how about a few close-ups?

The fairy’s house is actually a repurposed bed riser! My youngest moved from his dorm to an apartment and didn’t need them anymore, so he gave them to me! My family has learned I will take anything and repurpose it into a craft project!

My little door is from Creative Embellishments, coated in Vintage Gold wax with some ReneaBouquet’s glitter glass as the window. I used a variety of random pieces for my foliage: Christmas berries and leaves from JoAnn’s that I’ve had a couple of years, and some Styrofoam “shapers” with some wire that I thought would look interesting!

The figurines I found a couple of years ago at Dollar Tree and picked them up to have when the right project presented itself!

I hope you enjoyed this project! I had fun putting it all together, even if I did make a massive mess!
