how to make a fairy feel welcome

Fairies are shy little creatures, who are easily scared away, so how to make a fairy feel welcome  ?

Fairies are tiny, magical beings who look like humans but are only about a few cm tall. They are pretty and delicate creatures, with shimmery wings, which leave a trail of sparkly fairy dust wherever they fly.

It is said that fairies have been around for thousands of years and come from a place that cannot be seen by humans. They are known to be very shy but they love to visit humans and they will eventually create a home with you when they feel welcome and safe.

They especially love children and prefer to live as near to you as they can, so they can keep watch over you through the night. That’s why fairies love to set up their fairy doors in your bedroom.

The exciting thing is that when they have moved into your home, they love to leave little hints that they have visited, they enjoy speaking to you through small notes and they sometimes leave tiny treats to let you know you’re special!

A fairy feels welcome when….

1. You create a comfortable home for them

Making your fairy feel comfortable and welcome is a sure way for her to stay.

An easy way to to do this is by decorating her fairy door with little homely touches like a table for afternoon tea or a book she can read. Small items that decorate her fairy door are loved also, like a cute picket fence, a window or shelf to display her trinkets.

2. Write her Letters

A fairy’s favourite surprise is to receive a letter from you, which is why a Fairy Mailbox is her favourite item next to her fairy door. 

We have a fun post on How to Write Fairy letters and we also have available our amazing Fairy Mail Kit which contains a huge assortment of fairy letters, notes and cards.
