I can finally post photos of my fairy house!

I made this for the Small World forum "Round Thing non-contest". The only real requirement was to make a round structure. This fairy house in a tree stump started life as a small Pringles can. The base is a laminate flooring sample (I'm glad I save everything, lol.) The actual stump is 1:12 scale as you can see by the boy playing behind the tree. The fairy and her house are 1:48 scale. The house has working lights. The furniture is made from natural materials - many came from a couple of bags of potpourri.


The bark of the tree is made from paper mache.
