build an enchanted home
Fairy houses are small structures for fairies and nature’s friends to visit. Fairy houses are made out of natural materials such as sticks, bark, dry grasses, pebbles, shells, feathers, seaweed, pine cones and nuts. Ranging from rustic to intricate, these whimsical habitats are built by children, families, gardeners and nature lovers reflecting their creativity, joy and pride.
Originally started on islands off the coast of New England, fairy house building has spread throughout the country thanks to Tracy Kane, a Lee, New Hampshire resident and author of The Fairy Houses Series® of books.
But these enchanted homes don't build themselves--we need your creativity and inspiration to create the Fairy House Tour! This year, we are asking all of our fantastic builders to create their fairy houses in the comfort and safety of their own homes and to create a video or take photographs of your fairy house and send them to us to showcase in our virtual tour.
