Hot Glue Flower Fairy House Jar

Hot Glue Flower Fairy House Jar

Lately, I have been into fairy and garden stuff. I mean, I always love magical stuff since I was a child (who doesn’t). But every day, I just can’t stop thinking of making something enchanting. I even thought of just making nature and enchanted crafts because I’m fascinated by it. One thing is for sure, I will make more nature-inspired crafts.

With this DIY, you have to draw everything using the hot glue gun. If you think you can’t do it continuously, feel free to take a break once in a while if you feel like your hand is starting to get stiff. All you need to do is stop and relax your hand for a few minutes.

Supplies:

  • Empty jar (I used spaghetti sauce jar)
  • Hot glue gun
  • Acrylic paints, your favorite (I used purple, green, brown, orange and blue)
  • Mod Podge (dishwasher safe)
  • Paint container or you can use cardboard
  • Artificial leaves, large
  • Artificial large and small flowers
  • Miniature fairy

Steps:

  1. Draw the door of the house and the windows.
  2. Then the vertical lines. Space out the lines. Dry the first batch of lines first before continuing.
  3. Draw the door viewer or peephole, doorknob, top window and frame around the bottom of the jar.
  4. Fill in the remaining vertical gaps. Dry completely.
  5. Paint walls, doors, frames, knob, and bottle cap. Let it dry.
  6. Apply a coat of mod podge on all painted surfaces. Dry.
  7. Decorate the top of the cap with leaves and flowers using a hot glue gun.
  8. Place the small flowers between door and window or place it anywhere you desire.
  9. Glue the fairy on top of the flower, if you want to.

I haven’t tried placing this jar outdoors. I’m sure it is susceptible to rain, but I’m not sure if it can handle humidity or extreme heat. I have mine just indoors. I used it for storing keep-sake.
