Fairy door from bark
This cute fairy door is a great welcome for all fairies and fairy enthusiasts. Both the door and the doormat are made from tree bark. A painted mushroom sits on the roof, and a bird’s nest hangs from a sinew cord waiting for the mama bird to hatch the eggs. A welcome sign that “Fairies Live Here” is made from birch bark and displayed on a pine branch archway. The walkway to the door is made from birch bark and round wooden sticks. A painted mushroom sits to the left of the archway and a bouquet of flowers is to the side of the door. Ideal for inside use only. Measures 3 1/2” wide by 4 and three quarters tall.
