DIY Fairy Garden Log House Jar
In this video tutorial I show you how I made a medium sized fairy log house using a regular mason jar, tin foil, hot glue, paper clay and acrylic paint. It’s fun to make and you can use it as a decoration, secret hiding spot, or you can even turn it into a lamp by adding some battery operated LED candle lights. I will use mine for my fairy garden along side my other jar houses.
Materials and tools: one empty jar with lid, aluminum foil, air dry paper clay (here is my video on making your own AIR DRY PAPER CLAY ), hot glue and watercolors. (A lot of you asked me if you can use polymer clay on this kind of projects. Of course you can use polymer clay but for bigger jars like the ones I used in this video you will have to use a lot of polymer clay and the whole project will become expensive. You will be able to save a lot of material using thin foil but still, I would recommend you to use air dry paper clay.) Choose a jar and clean it with hot water and soap. Think about the shape of your fairy log house. I used cardboard and tin foil for the tree bark. I glued them together using hot glue. I also made a chimney and a branch using a wire and tin foil. When I was satisfied with the basic shape of my log house I made the door and started applying clay. You can work in two layers if you don't think you can make the texture from the first layer you apply. If the clay doesn’t stick to the previous layer I recommend you to water the areas you want to work on. Also keep a water container near by to wet your hands and working utensils when they get sticky. Use water to achieve smooth and shiny surfaces. Paint the fairy house in the desired colors. You can use acrylic paint or watercolors. If you use watercolors for this step I recommend you seal them in the end with varnish or regular hair spray. I painted the lid using different shades of nail polish until it looked like some tree log rings.
