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