This felt craft tutorial will teach you How to Make a Fairy Cottage from a felted sweater sleeve and a recycled container. This fairy home is great for encouraging imaginative play (and outdoor play, where the fairies live!) by inspiring kids to play make-believe and find magic in the world around them. If your child is afraid of the dark, turn this fairy cottage into a night light by putting it in their room and adding an LED candle. Read on to learn how to make a toy to enchant your child or grandchild!

This fairy house is so charming. The tutorial informs to use a felted sweater (great recycle idea) or just use felt pieces. I like the felted sweater idea as the fairy house seems sturdier. Love the idea to put a LED light inside so the little house become a night light!
