Trixie has a window in the back of course!

2. Mushroom Fairy House  by Marie of MarieYoungCreative

This orange blossom fairy sits on the stoop of her mushroom hut. I imagine her dusting herself with pixie dust to squeeze inside. The hut is polymer over a duck egg and the fairy is all polymer except for gold filigree wings.

This Fairy House is constructed over a drinking glass.

6. At Home in the Enchanted Forest  by Arlene of Ashpaints
This fairy house started its life as a glass vase from the local general store. Then a layer of "stone" was added using a shadow cane technique. The windows and door were added, then all the foresty elements to make the fairy feel really at home. For more information on how this fairy house was made, check out my blog at http://harrisonhollowdesigns.blogspot.com/2015/07/at-home-in-enchanted-forest.html

7. Fairy in a Bottle House by Betsy of StrebeDesigns

As a child I always colored outside the lines. Some things never change! Fairy in a Bottle House is made of polymer clay over a sake bottle. It is about 10" tall and is purely for fun. It has no function but to make you smile.. Making a fairy house for the PCAGOE challenge was way outside my comfort zone, so I am kinda happy with the results. For more views and a peek into the process see my blog post http://strebedesigns.blogspot.com/2015/07/fairy-in-bottle-house.html

8. Fairy House by Linda of Claymation3d

Fairy House. Polymer clay over wood birdhouse. It's a flower top birdhouse. Flower petals are each cut from copper mesh wire covered with shades of purples and applied one by one to make the flower on top. The "cobble stone" walls are textured with alcohol ink applied. There is a cute little fairy checking out the opening of the house. I think she's going to move in.

9. She sells Seashells by Beth of CreateMyWorldDesigns

Hand sculpted beach themed fairy house, all of these items were made from polymer. To read the story behind this piece, learn about the creative process and see more photos, please go to my blog:  http://createmyworlddesigns.blogspot.com/2015/07/she-sells-seashells.html
