Description

Add an exquisite flourish of design to your beloved green space or garden by adding tiny fairy homes inter-woven with nature. Fairy Houses gives you the instruction and inspiration you need to start!

Have you ever seen a real fairy house? Not the ceramic ones at cavernous home improvement stores, but a real fairy house made from natural elements? Well, now you can build your own miniature magical abode - the perfect addition to your garden.

Step-by-step instructions for constructing exquisite fairy houses are revealed in Fairy Houses, explained by master fairy house architect Sally Smith. Smith has been creating one-of-a-kind DIY fairy houses out of natural artifacts for years, now she passes her miniature construction knowledge to you.

Imagine, a fairy garden with homes that have butterfly wings as stained-glass windows, twigs for window frames, birch bark for walls, dried mushrooms for shingles; it's all possible with a little instruction and inspiration from Fairy Houses.

Begin by flipping through an inspiration gallery, find which elements appeal to you, and how they fit together. From there, you’ll learn about building materials (found and natural), on-site fairy house construction, and how to light a fairy house.

The author

Sally J. Smith is an environmental artist and photographer living in Westport, New York, on the edge of the Adirondacks. This locale lends itself to Sally's inspiration as she creates magical, mysterious, and marvelous "faerie" houses made from real leaves, moss and stone (and many other natural materials) as well as the stunning sculptures the artist calls "Eartherials" which echo the beauty of a special place or moment in time. Sally Smith's work is regularly featured in the calendar world, as well as The New York Times feature "Leave Your Wings at the Door". Sally is also the subject of the PBS's, Sally Smith: The Fairy Queen, which aired on "Roadside Adventures."
