Building A Wooden Fairy House DIY Kit – My Third One So Far.

Are you thinking about building wooden fairy houses DIY and looking for ideas? Well then maybe, you can find some inspiration on my site πŸ˜‰

Previously, I have made 2 before. The first one was at the start of my fairy garden, where I made one from a plastic bucket, that would otherwise be thrown away in the trash.

The second was based on a laser-cut fairy house that I needed to assemble and decorate myself. The latter blog posts explain how I made everything.

So my garden is slowly expanding, but still, I’m not totally happy with the result and I “need’ lots more stuff in it πŸ˜‰

Hence the third, and not the last, fairy house that I decorated DIY, with the help of another laser-cut miniature kit.

Let’s dive into it with a review of the kit and how I made it!

First: How Did I Make This Fairy House out of wood?

When you are building fairy houses, usually one makes them from examples found on the internet, in combination with your own style/imagination and intuition. Exactly what I did.

  • So, of course, unpack it, and this is what you get. All the different pieces that you need to assemble.

    First, you need to varnish all the pieces. Depending on whether you will place it outside or not (I do in spring/summer, when it’s not raining too much), you can add multiple layers of varnish.

    I put on three layers of Mod Podge outdoors, but you can use simple ship varnish as well.

  • Next up: assemble it with Mod Podge or waterproof wood glue! At the same time, I got a big rock to put the house on later on and took a lot of walks to collect the dark and smaller rocks πŸ˜‰

  • Then I started adding bigger pieces of rocks to the roof, painted some bits red and glued some small and low walls from rocks to the sides (a few centimeters high).

  • All while at the same time cutting pieces of wood from willow tree branches with my table saw, and painting them in different shades of brown.

    The second picture below shows the doubt that I had to give the grout a color as well or if I would just leave it blank. (I left it blank).

  • Furthermore I grouted the wood with mosaΓ―c grout and left it in the basic color. (or you could buy waterproof grout that you can paint).
Adding grout.
  • Finally, adding some bits and pieces of natural materials, plus little stuff that I had lying around for years now. Finished!

    The red flowers on the side are actually just painted branches from a date-palm! (without the dates of course).

  • This is how it looks like outside!

  1. Oh my this fairy house is so cute!!! Great job at putting it together and for all your thorough step by step explanation! It can seem quite complicated for a DIY novice like me. I can get discouraged ! So this really helps!! I will check that shop for myself so much I loved your end results! Thank you! 

    • Hi there!

      Thank you so much for your positivity, I surely loved putting it together and having my imagination getting loose on it haha!

      I wish you happy crafting!

      Best regards,


  2. I can’t wait to share this with my cousin. Her girls have been building a fairy garden and you have so many great ideas here. I love that you create pieces out of items that would have just been tossed in the trap. That’s another great lesson for kids to learn. You’ve done a really great job and I loved looking at all your pictures of completed projects.

  3. I love this idea so much! I am always so delighted when I spot a little fairy house in an unexpected place. You’ve done a great job of giving these a whimsical flair that is perfect for a fairy family to move on into! Thanks so much for the inspiration as this feels like the perfect craft for rainy days when I’m looking for ways to cheer up a space!

  4. Wow, I’m excited I will create my first fairy house soon because it appears to be simple to build after I get the necessary materials. I’m also relieved to see that those laser-cut items, as well as other materials, are reasonably priced and that Etsy is a fantastic store to buy them.
    Excellent review.

    • Hi Lio!

      I am glad that you like the way this fairy house was made and yes: those laser-cut items are fantastic! πŸ˜‰

      thank you,

      Best regards,


  5. This house is so cute! I am getting ready to assemble another model house from this wonderful etsy seller. I see that you painted some pieces and varnished others. Did you varnish the pieces you painted red, or just paint them? Thanks so much, Karen

    • Hi Karen!
      Thank you so very much for the compliment and I’m quite sure that you will enjoy this house as well, it is very good quality and fun!
      I did varnish the pieces, as in summer it is mostly outside. But I still took it inside when it was raining too heavily,didnt want to take a chance with such a piece of art haha! In the winter, I take my fairy houses indoors as well. Hubby says that he is going to make a pretty storage place for them soon πŸ˜‰
      You are welcome!
      Kind regards,
