Mason Jar Fairy House








I've always loved Fairies.Am sure even you as a child would have been definitely fascinated by them.As a child, some of my most magical memories involved fairies.There is something magical about them.

And you know what, some folklore has it that if you build a fairy house and leave it in your garden, you might attract a fairy into your place.That's mesmerizing, right????

Even now as a adult, I find stories about them awesome.Also there are a lot of really fun and creative fairy crafts available out there!Here am sharing a fairy house made with a Mason jar and clay.


Materials Used:-
  • Home Made Cold Porcelain Air Dry Clay(you can get the recipe here
  • Oil Paint 
  • Clay Tools 
  • Glue 
  • Unused Bottle or Mason Jar
  • Aluminium Foil 

I am a true addict of Coffee. My day doesn't start without a cup of steaming coffee. Coz of that, I do have a lot of empty coffee jars. So , i thought to use it for this project .You can use any unused mason jar.


I have also made glitter candle jars with these jars. Do check it out here.



Take your jar,wash and dry it.


Mix Brown paint to the clay and roll it out according to the size of your jar.


Wrap the clay around the jar.


Texture the clay with your clay tool.


Trace out Door and the windows.






For the roof of the house, crumple the aluminium foil into a cone shape.


With the help of glue , stick it on to the jar cap.


Cover it up with more clay.


For the door frame, roll out your brown clay.


Fold in half and twist it a bit.


Paste it with glue.


For texturing the roof, take brown clay and roll in into a oval shape and press it.


Paste it to the bottom of the roof as shown.Keep going around.


Roll out more clay and paste it till you cover up the roof top.




For the chimney, roll the brown clay into log shape and texture it.


Paste it on top of the roof.


Make foliage and flowers and paste it.
