How Alicia Made Her Woodland Fairy House

Alicia's Fairy House,
Recently my niece Alicia came to stay with me for 10 days. She really liked my Gnome dollhouse  and wanted to make herself but for Fairies instead of Gnomes.

I had this small wooden dollhouse stored away that I was keeping for a future renovation so I gave it to her and she went to work!

Pinecone scale roof,
Wow, I love that roof! She did a fantastic job using pinecone scales.
I have a tutorial on removing scales from the cones here.

It turns out amazing!
Alicia tried out different ideas for the exterior but nothing really looked fairy enough so she took a break and we decided to go thrift store shopping. While we were at a thrift store she found this bag of potpourri. The bag was a mix of the most perfect colors for a fairy house plus it smells divine!

I never would have thought of using potpourri but how wonderfully creative. Alicia will end up using some of this on her fairy too.
