Step up your fairy garden landscape with a petite teepee and fence. Both elements are made of wooden matchsticks and other basic materials that can be found at a crafts store. We used a strawberry-print fabric in our fairy teepee for added charm.
What You Need
- Wooden matchsticks (2.6 inch x 0.1 inch x 0.1 inch)
- Hot glue
- Precision pencil compass
Step 1: Make Base
Cross two matchsticks so there is about 1/4-inch crossing point at the top and they are making an "X" shape. Hot glue them together at crossing point and let dry.
Step 2: Add Third Stick
Add a third matchstick with hot glue to make a tripod.
Step 3: Cut Fabric
Cut a 5-inch half-circle out of the fabric of your choice.
Step 4: Wrap Fabric
Wrap fabric around tripod. Secure by applying hot glue to front legs and attaching fabric opening.
Step 5: Add Twine
Cut a 3-inch piece of twine and wrap around the tops of the matchsticks. Trim the tail of the twine.
Step 6: Cut Matchsticks
Now we'll make the fence. Cut matchsticks into 1/2-inch pieces.
Step 7: Wrap Wire
Wrap wire around single matchstick several times. Continue wrapping wire around matchsticks until desired length is attained. Trim tail end of wire.
