Paint a white mushroom on the rock

Chose a stone from the garden and wash it. Let it dry completely and then paint a white mushroom on it.

Add details

Paint the top of the mushroom red, leaving white dots. Add a door and some flowers beside the mushroom.

Add a window

Add a yellow window and finish adding details to the flowers. Let dry between steps so the colors don't bleed together.

Outline with a permanent marker

Use a permanent marker to outline details and add lines to the window and the door. Spray with acrylic sealer if you like.

Display your fairy house

Prop the finished fairy house at the base of a tree trunk to look like a little fairy house.
