DIY Fairy House Lamp

This is an easy craft project for kids to help them make a fairy house lamp for their room using a box and some craft sticks. We hope you’ll make your own fairy house lamp and tell us all about it.

WHAT YOU NEED FOR THIS CRAFT:

Craft or Popsicle Sticks

Box

Glue

Colored Paper

Black Pen

Self Adhesive Gemstones

Ruler

Scissors

Stapler

LED Light

 

  1. Start by cutting out two squares on either side of the box for the windows and a door on one side. (Keep one side of the door attached so you can swing the door open and shut)
  2. Glue on the Popsicle sticks on the box in a vertical pattern and make sure you don’t cover the window squares. You will need to cut some of the Popsicle sticks for the windows and door spaces.
  3. Once you’ve finished gluing sticks on all sides of the house, leave it to dry for half an hour.
  4. Using thinner craft sticks or cardboard paper in a dark color, measure and cut out strips that will frame the windows and door as well. Glue 2 strips in a crisscross shape on the inside of the window to be your window panes. Glue the other 4 strips on the outside of the window to be frame the window.
  5. We also stuck 2 strips on the door to give a little more definition.
  6. If you have top flaps on your box, then stick them together to create a roof. If you don’t then you can fold a piece of cardboard paper in half and stick it on the top of the box to act as the roof.
  7. Cover the roof with a colored paper or glitter paper. Cut out long black strips of cardboard paper or use thin craft sticks to glue on the roof as well.
  8. Leave to dry for another half an hour before you decorate the fairy house with gemstones.
  9. Finally place an LED lamp inside the box and your Fairy House Lamp is completed.
