Fairy Door

Post by Maria on Sun 18 Oct 2009 - 17:55

Well, here it is anyway.

Im going to stand it up agaisnt the wall and hope it lets them in to bring me luck. I rather like it anyway and its come out much sturdier than I expected.

The door knocker and bell pull were off a necklace I bought in a charity shop for the beads - Ive used the beads loads but the clasp was just crying out to be a knocker. The hinges are grungeboard with black brads and the inside metal trim was a coke can cut with the cuttlebug. The flower fairy stamps are obvious, and the fence was a Tim Holtz mask. Hinges were from the garage but alcohol inked and then glued on.

heres the front


and heres the inside


and this is from the back

It's lovely Maria, I just watched a youtube video? with that masking technique on, it looks great here, liking all the decorations, a lot of work in this. I hope they do bring you luck and keep the livestock out of the roof space too.

just chipboard, but the front is double layer cos i cut one layer and then cut another to cut into planks. the back is one layer but with paper either side.

The idea, well something I read in a book actually.

I love fairy doors. I once saw some wooden ones for the garden and asked Bob to make one. Still waiting!

This is lovely Maria.

That is really lovely Maria. I love the tiny hinges that are used on these. Maybe I will get round to making one soon.

exactly, and its only actually the front bit that you can see because its falt up against the wall - I only really did the inside so that if anyone ever did open it they wouldnt just see a blank space.
