As every fairy needs a home for themselves, we are going to show you How to Make a Cork Fairy House, a wonderful project to recycle the corks you might have laying around.
We didn’t paint ours, but you can make the fairy house pop by painting it.
This awesome idea popped into our heads today, as we watched Peter Pan, so we are so excited to show you how to make this house.
If you don’t like fairies, you can build this small house for your tiny toys to live in, just like our tiny pal Polly.
