Birch Pillar Fairy House for a Tabletop Fairy Garden

Make a simple Fairy House for your Fairy Garden with a beautiful Walnut Hollow Birch Pillar!  Fairy gardens are super trendy right now, but you don’t have to have a green thumb to make one.  Creating custom pieces for your fairy garden is a great way to make it personal and unique too!  I wanted to create a tabletop fairy garden using natural wood elements but I couldn’t find any wood fairy houses that would suit my needs so I built my own and it was so easy!

Here’s what you’ll need to make your own Birch Pillar Fairy house and Table Top Fairy Garden:

Fairy Garden Supplies

Step one:

Take your Birch Pillar and pick which side you want to be the front.  I picked the flattest and smoothest side of the pillar.   Use your hot glue gun to attach one of the Birch Tags to the bottom front of the pillar.  Glue a small birch round from the Value bag up a little higher and to the side for a window.  You can add more windows if you choose.  I only wanted one.

Step two:

Stack two small birch rounds from the Value Bag to one side of the top of the birch pillar.  Add a glob of hot glue on those stacked rounds, and a glob of hot glue on the edge of the pillar and attach a birch coaster to form a slanted roof.

Step three:

Use hot glue to attach preserved moss above the door, window and in the gaps of the roof.   You could also add some more fun details like little artificial flowers if you wanted!  Your Birch Pillar fairy house is now complete! You can use it anywhere you’d like.  I’m going to set mine up on a tabletop fairy garden.

Step four: 

Set up your tabletop fairy garden.  Lay the thick Basswood Country Round on the table for a base.  That beautiful thick bark is a lovely visual and add some height to your fairy garden.  Use the remaining two birch coasters to place beneath potted plants.  Place the plants and the birch pillar fairy house on the basswood round.  Two of my little plants were artificial, and only one was real.  If you have a hard time keeping plants alive, you can find beautiful artificial plants to put on your tabletop garden in many places!

Step five:

Fill in any gaps with more preserved moss.  Make your garden as green as you’d like it to be! You could also add in artificial silk flowers to fill in the gaps as well if you choose.

Add the fairy garden accessories.

I put a sweet little fairy in my garden and the most adorable little dragon with a ladybug on its nose.  I may add more details later.  You can customize your garden as much or as little as you’d like!
