Fairy School Tutorial! Yea!

Hello All!
How is your January coming along?
Ours has been cold and unusual....we have had snow and ice several times!
One of the benefits of weather like this is that I stay inside more and have more time to create!

Today I have posted the first two parts of a new free video series where I am demonstrating how to make a Fairy School from a shoe box. I totally loved this project. It is fun and fanciful!
When you are done with part A and B the entire school house will be done, inside and out.
The next two videos (which will be out very soon) will show how to create the faeries as well as the furniture and the accessories. It is so much fun to create these items!

(click on photo to see the image even better)
If you do create a Fairy School, I would love to see it! Please send me photos and I will post your Fairy School on my blog and tell my visitors about you and your art.

You can make this school house from any old shoebox that has a removable lid.
At the upper right hand side of this blog there is a link to the Fairy School Instructions and Supply list.

You can always substitute items with whatever works for you. I have used Paperwhimsy images for most of it, and there will be a list with the sheet numbers in case you would like to use them as well. There are so many different ways you could make this school. You could use vintage photos to create your faeries, you could use magazine images as well. You could paint or draw your own faeries too! Try using dictionary pages to paper the walls, or old greeting cards to paper the ceiling.......

Here it is!

And here is part b

Hi Terri, Love your videos. I will certainly have to squeeze in making a fairy school & maybe Sammie can even help with this or do her own.
Can't wait to see the next. Thanks my creative friend.~Theresa

Terri, the photos are so pretty. I can't stream videos well at all with my 3G modem...that's my only internet here in the mountains so I'm grateful for that but I do miss my super high speed to view videos and tv shows.

Your fairy school is beyond adorable...what a fun creation.

Have a wonderful day,
Stephanie ♥

Rella said...

Everything about this video is enchanting.....and so darling. the painstaking cutting of the 'stained glass' is a perfect touch. Of course, anything 'faerie' is perfect in my opinion, but your little design is perfection. I remember when I saw your very first one it took my breath away. What a darling you are to share this with all of us. A generous and sweet spirit.
Thank you so very much for all the time and effort you put in here. This is a beautiful gift. I cannot wait to share my little school house with you.

I have got to do this with my goddaughter! For her 8th birthday..she had a flower fairy party-i made a "guest appearance"--dressed as a flower fairy-with gifts, flower crowns, crafts, etc-each girl was dubbed a flower fairy! To this day, she *wonders* if I am, really, a flower fairy! I hit the age just right to capture the magic & imagination! Cannot wait for the rest of the videos!

The teacup is exquisite! Fairy school is better. Your little doll is a beauty. You are so talented Terri. Lovely tea cups and tea times. Beautiful hand work and creations. Exciting travels. Do you ever get to sleep?

Thank-you for hosting this time for me to share my teacups and enjoys those of so many others.

Tracey said...

Johanna Gehrlein said...

Hi Terri,
now as you added the Tea Time Tuesday to your tutorial, I will give a second comment just for your wonderful tea cup. I love those colors, only pink, grey and gold. Looks very sophisticated. I didn't knew that about the Aynsley system for dating, that was really interesting. I am in love with your little doll, so pretty, even the shoes are sparkling. Nice girl.
Have a nice week.
Greetings, Johanna

Brianne said...

Hi, Terri. What a sweet project. I am attempting to make the fairy schoolhouse for my little neice. I am going to do it a little different with material I have on hand. I hope this ok because money is a little tight and I think the fairies would want to use upcycled materials- don't you think? :) I can't wait to see the tutorial on building schoolhouse furniture. Thank you for your kindness in sharing these affirmations. Peace. Brianne
