Fairy Houses from Recycled Terracotta Flower Pots

 
Here is an easy project to make for your garden. I had been looking for fairy houses for my miniature garden. Most were the wrong size, expensive, would not hold up long or not what I was looking for. After doing some research on the Internet on flower pot fairy houses, I did not find much available in ideas.

The small room attached to the side of the house was a broken flower pot turned upside down with another small pot glued on top. I  drilled a hole into both pots and added a long bolt and nut to secure the pieces together. Use a masonry drill bit for drilling into the pots.
 
These fairy houses were made by recycling old terracotta flower pots. I used broken flower pot rims for the porch roof of the houses. The doors were purchased online from a hobby store for a great price, saving painting time. I used small plastic plants for the vines on the houses along with rocks, sticks, moss and other found objects.


I found old orchid pots were nice to use because of the slots on the side of the pots that become instant windows for the fairy house. Roofing materials for two of the houses was used coco liner for hanging baskets and moss for the other house. Make sure you use heavy duty outdoor construction glue to keep all pieces together and lots of imagination!

 
 
Hope you enjoy these creations. They were easy to do!
 
Happy Gardening!
