Egg Carton Fairy House Craft

My girls are slightly obsessed with fairies.

They love Tinkerbell and have several fairy dolls.

We’ve read more of Rainbow Magic Fairies books than I can even count.

So, you can image they came running when I suggested this simple egg carton fairy house craft.

Fairy houses are tiny little things and rather magical and colorful, at least that’s how we imagined them. Of course, the very best thing about Egg Carton Fairy Houses is that they are very fun to make.

The best part about this egg carton craft is that we used what we had. We didn’t have to go out and buy any special craft supplies.

We shuffled through our craft supplies and found everything we could possibly need for a fun afternoon of crafting.

How to make your egg carton fairy house craft

To begin, we took an egg carton apart into individual cups.

Egg cartons tear easily and there was no need to get the scissors out for this step.

The girls and I sat and tore our egg cartons apart until we got to the perfect fairy house shape. We did use the scissors to trip off any rough edges.

The next step was the fun step… painting!

We painted our fairy houses with acrylic paint for better coverage.

My girls are older, so I don’t worry as much about mess, but if that is a concern, you can use washable craft paint instead.

Paint the fairy houses however you imagine them. We had stripes, polka dots, color blocks, and plenty of pastel colors.

Each and every house had a tiny door so the fairies could come and go.

While we were painting, we talked about all our little fairy friends that were going to move into our village.

To finish up our houses, we made tiny little flags out of washi tape and toothpicks.

The flags are simple. Fold a piece of tape around one end of a toothpick and then use your scissors to cut the ends to make a pretty design.
