Fairy Door

Well it's taken me a while to get back to blogging. I've been busy outside, cleaning up the garden beds and dividing some plants. It's always fun when you finally have enough to move some around. I hope you all had a wonderful Easter!
One project I got done was this fairy door. I saw it somewhere on the web and thought it was soooo cute that I just had to try it. It didn't cost me a thing because I had all the stuff somewhere around the house.
Here's how it's done...

Find some scrap pieces of wood about 1 inch wide and 12inches long.

Make sure one piece is longer to use as a stake in the ground.
I used some metal thing that had wholes in it to screw it together.

Then I drew a curve at the top and cut it out.

I glued on to smaller pieces of wood cut to the width and a wooden doorknob.

Coat the whole thing with some exterior varnish so it will stay looking nice.
Staple some ivy around the top. Your done. Find a nice tree that has a groove at the bottom. Pound the stake into the ground. I cleared all the grass and added some rocks.
I just love the way it looks! It's in my front, on the tree lawn, for all the passer-bys to see.
Now I guess I should cut the grass...
