A Fairy Door

Fairy Door

There's no telling where or when a fairy door might crop up, but if one does, you can be sure it will lead to all kinds of speculation about what lies behind it. Using cardboard and scrapbook paper, you can construct a freestanding entryway into a magical fairy world. It's just tall enough for wee residents to pass through, yet big enough to accommodate the tallest of imaginations.

You'll need:

  • Fairy door template
  • Tree root door stand template
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Thin cardboard
  • Scrapbook paper (brown or wood grain) for the cross boards
  • Corrugated cardboard
  • Glue stick
  • Stud-style pierced earring or button for the doorknob
  • Pebbles or small stones
  • Silk flowers and greenery
Instructions:

1. Print both templates and cut out the pieces. Trace the tree root door stand onto the thin cardboard. Then trace the same door stand piece, plus the doorframe and the three battens, onto scrapbook paper.

2. Trace the door onto the corrugated cardboard (make sure the corrugation is running vertically).

3. Cut out all of the tracings.

4. Peel the surface layer off the cardboard door to expose the corrugation. Then use the glue stick to attach the battens to the front of the door, as pictured. Step 4a Step 4b
5. Glue on the paper doorframe, as shown. Step 5
6. Cover the cardboard stand with its matching scrapbook paper cutout. Then fold back the notch in the bottom of the stand where indicated on the template. Step 6

7. Glue the tree root stand to the back of the door.

8. Attach the earring doorknob by poking the stud through the door and then pushing the fastener snugly up against the back of the cardboard. (If you're using a button doorknob, simply glue it in place.)

9. Now your child can set up the finished fairy door wherever she likes, completing the scene with a moss-lined pebble pathway and silk flowers.
