As a child, I was amazed by stories that involve little fairies and magic. I must admit that feeling has never left me even at this age.
There’s something whimsical about fairies. And believing in magic makes one believe that anything can happen.
When reading most fairytales or fairytale-like stories , you will almost always encounter a magical, enchanted doorway. There are the round doors of the hobits, magic castles with towering wooden doors full of elaborate scroll work, and the woodland bear whose cave has an appealing door with a sign hanging above.
I’ve always loved seeing fairy doors, most of all. I think they add a little bit of magic. Whether you believe in fairies or not, having these little doors will make lovely little accents. You can put these doors inside a room or on a tree trunk. Work on it over the weekend. Ask your kids to help. This DIY project will be a fun bonding activity for the whole family!
