Inside: how to make a faux tree trunk fairy house with supplies you have in your stash!
Have you ever put two socks in your washing machine and when it was finished only found one? It happens to me all the time! The explanation for this phenomenon is that the socks get sucked into the washing machine's pipes or get pulled under the drum. However there's another more controversial explanation which I like much better... the fairies stole one of the socks! You don't have to believe in fairies to make this faux tree trunk fairy house but... it won't hurt 🙂

Start with an empty plastic flowerpot. To give it a faux bark effect you need to create the texture of the tree trunk. The way to do that is with a wet paper towel. Glue the paper towel on the flowerpot while sculpting it a little.
After the paper towel is dry paint it with a few layers of brown colors. I had only one brown paint so I added black and white to create more shades.
Create the roof from pieces of corrugated cardboard that I painted first with black acrylic paint. After the paint wa dry I sprayed the cardboard with green shimmer spray.
Cut the cardboard into small rectangles and squares and make them uneven. Then make a cone (like a witch's hat on Halloween) and cover it with the cardboard pieces. Add a little moss in between the gaps.
add windows and a door to the faux tree trunk house.
