Handmade Fairy House

If you want to encourage fairies to visit you, try putting a fairy house in a place of honor in your home.  A fairy house not only shows fairies that you believe in them, it also shows that you are making an effort to extend your hospitality and provide them with a fairy friendly environment.  Fairies are very appreciative of special places you set aside especially for them and will be much more inclined to communicate with you.

A fairy house and the area around it is considered sacred space and can serve as a gateway to faerie.  This special house can be both a place to leave gifts for fairies, and a place to conduct your fairy magic.  Here, you can fly the fairy flag, display little fairy shoes, and leave little things you think they might enjoy such as a thimble of honey, fairy cakes or even a little ale!  One important thing–never have iron anywhere near the fairy house as iron is poisonous to fairies.

Your fairy house design can be as fancy or as simple as you wish.  It should be constructed of mostly natural materials that you have found in nature or have on hand if you are a crafter.  The house in the picture above was constructed of scrap wooden boards with twigs and copper added as decorative elements.  The copper was used because it is a favorite fairy metal and very attractive to them.

The little pixie house below was made from a card stock base with moss, bay leaves, and a few twigs added  for decoration.  It may look difficult to make but all it took was a two to three hours, the above items and a glue gun and it was done! For those crafters out there, I will be showing you how to do this simple house in an upcoming post.

Once you have your fairy house in place, make sure you occasionally greet them and send them some positive thoughts.  It won’t be long before you realize you have some new residents in your home!

A perfect place for pixies.

Update:  Hi Everyone!  Because of the number of comments on this post, I am moving all further comments to the forum.  It would be very  helpful if you could try to stay on topic or create a  new topic if you would like–it makes it so much less confusing that way.  Thanks so much!
