My sister and I used to build fairy houses as kids! This is like bringing the fairy houses into your own house! Such a great and magical idea. I'll definitely do this project with my own kids.

Fairy houses are all the rage right now. I think they are adorable and this one ranks up high on the scale because the project is "green". The possibilities are endless and if you complete this as a group project, at the end you could have a Fairy house village.

There are a few directions on how to complete this project but the sky is the limit. With a little paint and a lot of creativity, by the end of the night you little one could be resting with a homemade green fairy night light.

You can find plenty of battery operated votive or tealights at either the dollar store or a craft store like Michaels. If you find an old floral arrangement at the thrift store for a buck or something, buy it and recycle the blooms and leaves for this fairy light bottle project. Your plastic bottles are easy to come by! I neat rainy day craft project for the kids.

I was browsing for ideas to create fairy houses, and those fairy houses on the pictures look so adorable! I have the plastic bottles, and other things needed for this project, except the battery operated light. I have been looking for that kind of light but no luck so far. Hope I will find some soon. Can't wait to make some fairy houses!

just found those at the Dollar Tree...programmable! 2 in the pack for $1.00

OH MY GOSH I LOVE THIS Fairy house made from recycled bottles. It is the cutest thing I have seen and super easy to make. I love the battery operated light because it gives it that glow. I was looking at fairy houses to put in my fairy garden but they are so expensive. I have lots of empty water bottles around and I am going to make a lot of these. Super great video. Well done. Is there any other fairy house videos. Thanks for inspiration.
