Skip the recycling bin and turn a plastic jug into a quaint fairy house. Create a pebbled roof for added charm.
This fanciful fairy house is pieced together using a recycled plastic jug accented with natural elements, including a twig door and pebbled roof. Feel free to paint the house however you desire—we used a textured spray paint to blend this tiny house into its wooded landscape.
Make sure plastic container is clean and free of stickers or gummy residue. Roughen the surface with sandpaper so the paint will adhere better. Spray paint container according to can instructions, and let dry completely.
Cut a piece of cardboard to desired size and shape of door. Break twigs into pieces that are slightly longer than height of door, and hot glue the twigs to the cardboard. Let dry. Once dry, trim twigs to desired shape of door.
Hot glue door to front of house.
Use crafts knife to cut a hole for the window. Border window with pebbles by hot gluing them around the edge.
Decorate roof by hot gluing pebbles to neck of container.
