Ever dream of having a faerie to come visit your backyard? well, faerie houses are the way to go. a faerie house is essentially a little house you can make, either out of natural materials like twigs or tree stumps or from old milk cartons or bird houses. after you get your house, you can decorate it with different thing you find outside, like twigs, leaves, walnut halves, etc. and put a little something special inside to entice faeries to come visit, like sugar or dried cranberries or the like.
